If they lose a draft pick, it would probably be a Day 3 pick, but even that would be costly. If you don’t think the loss of a fifth or sixth-round is a big deal, think of it this way:

Antonio Brown is fifth in the NFL in receiving yardage (1,103), and he was a sixth-rounder in the 2010 NFL Draft. He’s arguably the best player for Pittsburgh not named Big Ben, and it goes to show just how valuable every pick in a draft is.

And look at the Cincinnati Bengals: George Iloka (starting safety) and Marvin jones (starting WR) were both fifth-rounds draft picks. And if you go to the fourth-round, Clint Boling (starting LG), Domata Peko (starting DT) and Anthony Collins (now starting OL) were all taken in that round.

In other words, good job Tomlin!
