This does bring up an interesting point . . . which is that the MLB position, long considered less important than edge, cb, safety, etc. is looking more and more vital. Look at Cowboys, Panthers and Steelers without their stud ILB. Totally different teams.

Same is happening with RB position. Long considered an afterthought, we're seeing elite RB's big huge factors for playoff teams.

While obviously not as important as QB, you could easily argue that a top 5 back (Bell, Gurley, etc.) has more value than a top 5 WR.

JuJu Smith-Schuster (@TeamJuJu)'s 265 combined yards today,

143 receiving+122 kickoff return,

are the 2nd-most by a rookie in #Steelers history:

Why does it feel like everyone thinks this is an attack on Ju Ju or his skills. Ju Ju is awesome. The point is it would be better for the team if we had the equivalent awesome IMLB!

If you can pull it off I can’t see how anyone on this board could argue with it. If they traded Ju Ju to an up and coming QB’s offense and got an all-pro IMLB; would you argue with that?

I think a GM worth his salt could pull it off.

My apologies. I didn't comment trying to insult you or this thread. I did ask what ILB from an up and coming team would you shoot for?

I think everyone got your point, we just disagree with it. A No.2 WR is a necessity, and JuJu is just we've been missing. Would you trade a Hines Ward / Anquan Boldin mix for a MLB? I wouldn't. I'd rather wait for the Dolphins to cut Timmons and re-sign him while taking an ILB in the first 3 rounds of the draft.

This thread is not going to age well at all.

Agree. JuJu is a special player. They don't grow on treees. We'll find a ILB.

Didn’t some of our resident draft experts question the JuJu pick?
