If Ebron was there at #28, you almost have to take him.  Little doubt that he'd be the BPA at that point.  He'd also give us a legit red zone target which is an element that we sorely lack in our offense.  I love Olsen, but despite his size, he's not a great red zone target.

Turn him into a #1 WR.

Too bad Ebron's going Top 10 to the Bills. 12 at worst to the Giants :(

If not for the Dickson pickup, I would really like this pick.  I'm not saying that Dickson will provide the same level of play that Ebron could, but you damn well better believe that Dickson will be giving 100% out there because his career is on the line.  Ebron, on the other hand, has a reputation for not trying when it comes to blocking.  And that bothers me.

 

I'd still be happy with this pick, because Ebron is more talented than a #28 overall should be, but I'm not sure it makes as much sense anymore now that we already acquired another pass-catching TE.

Your #1 receiver doesn't necessarily have to play WR.  Jimmy Graham is without a doubt the Saints' #1 receiver.  Same with Gronk in NE when he's healthy.  In his prime, Gates was in SD and so was Gonzalez in KC.  There was probably also a time when you could've argued that Shannon Sharpe was the #1 target in Denver.

 

If Ebron is on the board with a bunch of guys who are likely #2 WRs, give me Ebron.  He has the talent to be an elite NFL TE.  I'll take an elite TE prospect over a decent starting WR prospect all day everyday.

I love what it says as well, "Someone has to fall, you know?"  Exactamundo, and the Gettfather will be sitting dead red on them.  Ebron would be similar to Cordarelle Patterson-who I mentioned yesterday-also mocked in the top 20 and even top 10 for much of the mock season, then falls to 29.  Would jump all over Ebron and would be a fool not to.  "Someone has to fall, you know?"

Dickson signed a 1 year, veteran minimum contract.  No one on a 1 year, veteran minimum contract is going to have one bit of impact on a team's 1st round draft pick.  You draft a guy in the 1st round for the next decade.

    • I had always assumed she was dardaroarroar
    • elton simpson was monitored over a 9 year period (fbi claims there were breaks but at the least there were still years of monitoring) and at least $132,000 in cash was spent on one informant alone. here's the fbi's version in the immediate aftermath of the shooting:   Three hours before gunmen attacked an anti-Prophet Muhammad event in Garland, Texas on Sunday, the FBI sent a bulletin to local police with a photo of one of the shooters, Elton Simpson, noting that he was "interested in the event," FBI director James Comey said. At the time, the FBI had no reason to believe that Simpson intended to attack the event, Comey told reporters Thursday. Nor did the agency know that Simpson was already on his way there. Comey also said that he does not believe that the police officer who shot Simpson and the second gunman, Soofi Nadir, was aware of the bulletin. He went on to say that while the investigation of the Phoenix gunmen is far from complete, Comey believes the FBI acted appropriately. ..... Two weeks before the Garland event, which invited artists to draw illustrations of Muhammad, the FBI and Homeland Security warned law enforcement agencies across the country that it was at risk of being targeted by Islamic extremists. The advisory noted that supporters of ISIS and other terror groups had posted links to the contest on Twitter. Simpson was reading those posts, and communicated with an American in Somalia who'd called for attacking the event, investigators have said. The FBI then developed information that Simpson might be interested in traveling to Garland, Comey said. The Sunday bulletin followed. ..... The FBI now has hundreds of investigations of potential home grown extremists under way, with cases open in every state. "I know there are other Elton Simpsons out there," Comey said. Finding them, however, is a "very hard task," he said. Investigators can follow messages that are posted on public twitter accounts. But ISIS recruiters are steering people off Twitter into encrypted forums, which the government cannot see, Comey said. "Its the old going-dark problem, in living color," said Comey. He added: "We have hundreds working on it around the clock. But in almost every case of violence, someone saw something. A friend, a family member. Its more important than ever for people to speak up."     ^^^just a reminder for the bolded parts that a federal agent was in the car directly behind them as they opened their doors and began their short lived attack
    • Looks like it has potential. BvS was terrible. I will say the extended version was a better film but still not good. Suicide Squad was one of the worst films I've seen in a while.  That said of course I will waste my money and go see this. I hope they bring back Batman's more cunning qualities in future films. I got the sense that in BvS he was a what you see is what you get type of guy. You don't get the feeling that he has something up his sleeve at all times. Which was something Nolan/Bale had, almost Bond-esque.
