Default Re: Morris Claiborne to the Steelers?

Also, please don't compare this franchise to the Browns. That is not even close. We have a stud QB, a blazing receiver corps, and a hall of fame safety with some amazing linebackers.

OK, let me ask you this......are we using hindsight or pretending that Claiborne is Revis??

Mel Kiper's 2007 NFL draft big board (Feb 24, 2007)

6. La Ron Landry LSU Safety
17. Reggie Nelson, Florida Safety
19. Leon Hall, CB Michigan

Kiper had Leon Hall the top ranked CB in the draft then. Revis wasnt even in his top 25. So if we traded away 2 picks to move up and get a stud CB like Hall, think how much better we would be??
once a sandwich artist....soon to be Sack Artist.
