- Hill 2004- round 2

the steelers are not waiting that late either
-Hampton 2001 Round 1
-Aaron Smith 1999 Round 4
I'll grant you that the Patriots are an exception to the rule. Pittsburgh, which has run the 3-4 longer than any team in the league and which is the model which Capers follows, has very rarely drafted a D-lineman high in the draft. In fact, Hampton may have been their only first round pick since they switched to a 3-4, and he was at the end of the first round.
