I had to go back a long way as even drafts were they missed on the 1st round pick but they had some players that played for a long time.  This draft got Noll to retire.

1991    1    1    15    15    Huey Richardson    LB    Florida
     2    2    19    46    Jeff Graham    WR    Ohio State
     3    3    18    73    Ernie Mills    WR    Florida   <<< Only one that amounted to anything
     4    4    5    88    Sammy Walker    DB    Texas Tech
     5    4    20    103    Adrian Cooper    TE    Oklahoma
     6    6    19    158    Leroy Thompson    RB    Penn State
     7    7    18    185    Andre Jones    LB    Notre Dame
     8    8    17    212    Dean Dingman    G    Michigan
     9    9    15    238    Bruce McGonnigal    TE    Virginia
     10    10    19    269    Ariel Solomon    T    Colorado
     11    11    18    296    Efrum Thomas    DB    Alabama
     12    12    17    323    Jeff Brady

Graham did better after he left the Steelers in 1994. Cooper was a good player as well (they should have re-signed him and traded Eric Green in 94 before he went FA). Also, Leroy Thompson had a decent career for several years as a backup with the Steelers, Pats, and KC among others.

Also, I think that the firing of Tom Moore after they lost to Denver in the 89 playoffs may have been the beginning of the end for Noll. He hired Joe Walton as OC, and they didn't get back to the playoffs again until Cowher Power in 92.
