1. Dennis Rodman (Drafted 27th Overall In 1986)
Dennis Rodman is clearly among the best NBA Draft steals ever, but he might be the biggest due to falling all the way to the second round in 1986. While Rodman was never known as a notable scorer, he is known for being one of the greatest defenders and rebounders in NBA history. He was a key asset to two different championship franchises, Chicago & Detroit.
As a member of the Bad Boy Pistons, he became the NBA Defensive Player of the Year twice. Overall, he is a 7-time All-Defensive First Team selection and even became a 2-time All-NBA Third Team selection. On top of being an NBA All-Star twice, he led the league in rebounding 7 times. He even did this 7 straight years (1992-1998). Overall, Rodman managed to win 5 NBA Championships in his NBA career.
