Ben Roethlisberger was drafted 11th overall in the 2004 draft. The Steelers wanted to sit him and groom him, but backup Charlie Batch got hurt in the preseason, so Big Ben was moved up to #2 behind Tommy Maddox. In the third game, Maddox got knocked out of action and Roetlhisberger took over. He then led the Steelers to 13 straight wins and was named Offensive Rookie of the Year.
