    On SNR Dale Lolley and Matt were talking people having hindsight on Leonard, they said he wasn't rated with a first round grade. So, @Formerscribe like I said to you before even if they didn't draft Edmunds it wasn't going to be Leonard, also Alex Kozora from Steelers depot said they wouldn't draft a small school guy in the first round. The lone exception was Ben, he was the last small school player they drafted in the first round.

    In hindsight, we should have drafted Tom Brady instead of Tee Martin

    This terrible argument is tiresome. Just because they wouldn't have taken him doesn't mean they shouldn't have taken him. That has been the point all along. The Steelers didn't have Leonard rated high enough. They should have taken a closer look at him and they should have taken him over Edmunds. That mistake has cost the team dearly and it will continue to do so going forward.

    What part of he wasn't a first round player don't you understand? I guess 31 other teams didn't have him rated high enough, because nobody picked him in the first round.

    Tomlin and Colbert said they had a 1st round grade on Rudolf... that doesnt inspire confidence in the next QB pick now does it ..:lolol:

    personally i think they were lying to make rudolf feel good. if they really thought he was 1st round talent they wouldnt have waited till the 3rd. plus the fact that 31 other teams passed on him 2 or 3 times should have gien them a clue that maybe he wasnt the talent they thought he was.

    i was never on here. been over at steelers extreme since 2011 with the same name. before that i was on steeler fever with the same name. i was also briefly on steelers universe with the same name until one of the mods didnt like me challenging his point of view and banned me along with about 5 other people.

    If I'm not mistaken....I believe a few places Had Mason as a first round grade. Which of course means absolutely nothing. So.....:shrug:

    PFF had Mason as the #20 something on their entire board iirc

    Leonard would have been a great pick but the reality is that he is much better than anybody thought and very few had a first round grade on him. It was a tremendous pick by the Colts

    Edmunds was never worth a first but it was a relatively weak class and there aren’t many inspiring names that went after him, Lamar Jackson wasn’t really an option with Ben coming off a good year in 2017.

    That’s not to defend the selection of Edmunds, it wasn’t good but there are several other team rueing their selections that year.

    Formerscribe is a genius...and I'm serious! Steelers jumped the shark when they signed Edmunds over Leonard.

    I agree. The Steelers should have taken Leonard. It is not that I ever disagreed with that. But at the time I certainly didn't feel that way. I wasn't high on Leonard at all, and I honestly thought Edmunds would be a sleeper.

    The sad thing is the Steelers could have taken Leonard and still drafted a better saftey later on. Again though, hindsight is always 20/20.

    Except the Steelers weren't going to draft a small school ILB in the first round.
