Yeah Jamal Charles is another one. Hopefully fate will let the right one fall to us.
Well, I can't fault your line of reasoning. I'm not sure I agree with you on some of those values.
Here's my take.
We need a WR, a CB and a RB. Of those three the only one who is likely to see a lot of playing time this year is the RB. Sure the CB and the WR may see the field. But we're not Arizona rebuilding and able to put rookies on the field like that. Sure we can but we'd rather not. The CB can play into the three spot or number two if he's really good and we lose one or two CBs. If you put Pacman in there as the number three it gets less likely. The WR is likely to not see as much playing time. And the RB only needs to play enough to spell MB. He doesn't have to share half the load.
Not sure we may get a rookie RB that can play like Adrian Peterson. And the WR may be another Boldin. And the CB may be another TNew or if you're older he may play like Walls did. But those are long shots.
So I think Dallas just needs to let the players come to them. They don't have to stretch it. And I like the idea of trading with Atlanta IF we don't have a player at 28 that's worth the pick.
This is not an elite draft but its deep. The drop off from the top players outside 10-15 is not as big as usual. And the drop from the bottom half of the first is not that big to the top of the second.
If Jerry follows his board and doesn't make risky decisions then he'll do as well as any one. Jerry seems to enjoy being the bright guy and sometimes it bites him in the butt.
Jesus, that is crazy, AP ran a 4.4, guess that is a wow. Chris Long did better than the good ones there with his 4.21.
People trade down to obtain extra picks. There is no huge difference in 28 and 34 as far as talent. The question is will the players you like at positions of need still be available after you drop down a few. And will you be forced to take a player who is significantly less talented than you passed up.
I think it's risky business. Jerry needs to be very careful. Last year it was a good thing. This year it may be a not so helpful thing.
aren't we gonna have double digit picks next year? why trade down this year if that's the case?
Yeah, the shuttle can be deceiving--but so can a lot of those measurables.
All else equal, I'd prefer great measurables. The other stuff like vision, patience, toughness, etc are huge.
I really think that they don't make that choice until they see how the draft is falling. Of course, if you feel sure that you can get your guy while still dropping a few slots (and picking up another pick), than go for it. Otherwise, I would not consider it.
If you basically get something without giving anything up then you get ahead. Draft picks are like gold. Actually a lot of gold. If they have more than they can use then they can use them in some way. Like trading them for players they want. Or getting extra picks in the first day of the draft and giving up the later ones. I don't fully understand how clubs pay for all their rookies but I think they get enough money to pay them. Ask Adam.
my point was why trade down if we will have more ammo next year to do that than this year. I think with the talent at cb and rb we should trade up if anything and get a playmaker with speed.
if you are at a particular pick and there is no one that is value that is a need or a good fit you trade down. IE at any of our first three picks there is no WR, RB, or CB worth a flip nor a player that slid to that area.
I think we are going to go DB than RB in the 1st round since the team was so high on Phillips and the top ppl won't be there i could see us picking up Phillips going RB then getting some one in the 2nd round.
