The most compelling story line of the NFL draft went nowhere Thursday night. Sam Bradford went No.1 overall, Tim Tebow was picked before the end of the first round and Jimmy Clausen slid - and all of this was mildly interesting. The requisite trades caused the requisite stirrings. But the saga of Ben Roethlisberger hung over the evening, and then evaporated.
Would the Pittsburgh Steelers trade their star quarterback, as was being threatened? Were any of the teams holding top-10 picks interested? Were the Browns, who had the No.7 overall pick?
