    Who are some of the bigger steals in the NFL draft past?


    Joe Montana (3rd round) Terrell Davis (6th round) and Tom Brady (6th round) come to my mind.

    Javon Walker - 1st round pick in 2001. Was robbed in Las Vegas in 2008.

    Maurice Clarett - 3rd round pick in 2005. Was convicted of Robbery in 2006.

    These are your all time Draft Steals!

    Every NFL team picking after Al Davis in the last 5-7 years got someone who should have gone at least 1 spot higher.

    Also as a 49er fan who has had to watch the Alex Smith train wreck the last 5 years, I have to say Aaron Rodgers was a steal for Green Bay even though he was a 1st round pick.

    There are a lot of draft steals out there since there is always somebody who goes undrafted, makes a team and becomes an all-pro.

    Off the top of my head, from Bronco's lore:
    Karl Mecklenburg

    Most notable undrafted I can think of:
    Kurt Warner

    Bart Starr 17th round pick HOF
    Also Johnny Unitas but he didn't play for the team that drafted him.

    Recent years with the draft cut to 7 rounds there are quite a few seventh rounders who are solid starters and even some pro bowlers.

    Tyrone Braxton, 12th round almost the last pick in the draft, 12 year starter with superbowl rings.

    Had Tombstone had the surgical techniques available that they do now he would be a Hall of Famer. Guy could flat out rush the QB, he also threw some running backs down so hard that they danced to stay out of his area after.
