At the time we had recently spent a 1st rounder on Polamalu and a 3rd on Chris Hope. We were set at safety and needed a CB. Unfortunately the CB class that year was garbage. For what it's worth, Mel Kiper praised the Colclough pick at the time and claimed he would have a big impact in the NFL.

Mel Kiper is a retard, we let Hope go, what after the 2005 season, Ryan's been a great FS but Bob Sanders is a defense changer like Polamalu.

Same could be said about Polamalu, In his 6 years as starter.

He's only finished 1 full season in the past 4.

It's easy to make comparisons like this, WAY WAY WAY AFTER THE FACT.

I doubt many of you were punching the walls on draft day saying "damnit we should have gotten Sanders, I know Ricardo is gonna be such a bum". Odds are most of us had no clue who either of the two were.

As someone else mentioned, it's not like we were failing at the safety position either. Polamalu and Hope made up one of the best tandems we've ever had back there.

Pretty pointless thread, why don't you call us out for not drafting Tom Brady with one of our numerous picks way back in the day too, nitpick through that draft and see what scrub we drafted instead of a future great?
