  1. Wasn't really possible once they traded down. Of course, trading down was a choice.

    My reaction too.

  4. Carolina Panthers UDFA Roster Paths

    A good performance in preseason can go a long way toward changing a team's opinion, though.

    I'll run it past Mrs Robinson.
  7. About those corners...

    To complete that analogy, you're only allowed three items and you already have a Chicken Kiev and a Leg of Lamb on your plate, yet you still order the four hamburgers knowing that you won't even get to eat three of them anyway. I'm hungry now.
  8. About those corners...

    Only 53 guys make the final roster, and most of those will be players returning from last year. When there are only a few spots available, getting the best players you can for those spots is true "common sense".

  10. Garrett > Funchess?

    Way, way, way too early to judge. Throw in that Funchess has a year of pro experience while Garrett has yet to even start learning the pro game. There's no guarantee he'll make the transition easily. Heck there's no guarantee he'll make it at all. Lots of guys with loads of talent don't make the grade for a variety of reasons.
  11. About those corners...

    As the draft goes on, the quality of the players available gets lower. The equation is simple: One good player and two who won't make the roster means you wind up with one good player. Packaging the picks means you don't waste your time on two guys who weren't going to make it anyway and you wind up with one great player. It's not hard to understand.
  12. About those corners...

    Actually his 'wasted resources' comment is exactly right. The choice would be between using three draft picks to get one good player and two who won't make it out of camp versus trading away the two lower picks to move up and get a great player. That's smart management, and smart teams do it all the time.
  13. SI article on Keyarris Garrett

    Seems like the kind of kid you wanna root for.
  14. About those corners...

    Actually it's also about the number of spots available on the roster. The reason why we traded up last year was because we didn't have room for nine rookies on an already crowded roster. Same situation applies this year. Someone with team building experience knows that.
