.Steelers would select the only future HOFers in the 1970 Draft: Bradshaw in Rd 1, Mel Blount in Rd 3.
They came up with the 5 yard rule bc the WR and coaches complained about Mel Blount putting hands on them being too…
Exactly, that's why it's hard to compare. Cliff Branch said Mel Blount wouldn't let you off line of scrimmage.
GOAT CBs:. -- Mel Blount. -- Deion Sanders. -- Mike Haynes. -- *** LeBeau. -- Champ Bailey. You can argue about the spots all you want.
Again, you guys with these "GOAT CB" lists don't get to speak if you don't address Mel Blount and Mike Haynes.
Your list is invalid without Mel Blount or Mike Haynes.
OBJ better be glad he didn't have to go up against Mel Blount. He wouldn't put up with his bs.
Mel Blount wouldn't put up with OBJ's bs if he were playing today
tom is more appealing to me, the NIght Train.. Isn't much better than Mel Blount TBH
Joe Greene, Rocky Bleier, Jack Ham, Mel Blount among the GREAT signatures that are in this Steelers book!…
I just remember the dents Mel Blount put it on his head.
Mel Blount has good reason to smile. His son Jibri with seven early points and a hustle play for a rebound.
And Steel steps right up with a 3. Dukes 10, Cleveland State 9 at first media TO. Jibri Blount, son of Mel, has 7 already for the Vikings.

To be fair, it's like having a clone of Mel Blount across from Mel Blount. But Mel Blount is 700K less.
Mel Blount is still the best CB in MUT. You can @ me if you want. That being said, NTL is no slouch. Great compliment, but not for 900K.
Covering Duquesne vs. Cleveland State. Mel Blount's son, Jibri, is a sophomore forward for the Vikings. Averaging 7.8 ppg in 4 starts
yea . I have Blount , DRC and now NTL. Do I go Mel or NTL in the slot?
Now that I have NTL, I'm trying to decide where I want to play him. FS up top with Krause, or in the slot across from Mel Blount?
Paul Krause and Mel Blount at safety>
Imagine Jack Lambert, Joe Greene, Jack Ham, Mel Blount or other HOF Steelers acting like that? Score, give ball to ref.
Mel Blount just came up to me and introduced himself 😮 as a diehard Steeler fan I'm in awe
I want Cooks, for sure, not at 250 tho. Heard great things about Mel Blount as well, haven't seen new Irvin he's always good
B cooks, mel blount, 90 ziggy ansah, and the new Bruce Irvin. Gg
NTL ain't even worth it tbh same card as Mel blount
Mel Blount the best CB for me, i dunno if I should go after NTL
boom you just wasted $160 on a mel Blount with better coverage skills and can't press

I meant compared to mel blount. Wrong convo. Oops
Are you stupid? Mel Blount is good but NTL is them taking Blount upping his stats a slight bit and playing it off
did you see the comparison to Mel Blount 48 ?

Deangelo Hall was a frustrating, inconsistent corner and whenever he played Dez Bryant he turned into Mel Blount. This rivalry can be weird.
Just learned that Mel Blount is a distant cousin.
