9. Andy Russell – Drafted in 1963 in the 16th Round with Pick 220. Andy was the “Other” linebacker for the Steel Curtain of the mid 1970s. While you can’t measure Russell’s worth in sacks and tackles, because they weren’t official stats when he played, you can measure it in turnovers, as he had 18 interceptions and 10 fumble recoveries in his career.
