Steelers GM Kevin Colbert Denounces NFL Draft Leaks

Doug Pensinger/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- As the NFL gets closer to the Draft, more and more information is leaked about perspective prospects, possibly to manipulate the draft boards. Pittsburgh Steelers general manager Kevin Colbert thinks it has to stop.

"I think it's horrible," Colbert added. "I think it's really bad for our profession when people use whatever means they use to get information out to try to influence the draft and they talk about a kid's test score, a kid's injury, a kid's character. I think that's awful. It's disrespectful to our profession, it's disrespectful to the game, it's disrespectful to the kid."

"We don't believe in mock drafts and what people are saying about other teams because so much of it is misinformation," he continued. "You'd just lose your mind trying to figure out what everyone's going to do. We're going to be true to what we do and feel good about it and live with it."

The first round of the NFL Draft is April 30.
