This was the gamble (not "mortgage") that Fox made.

It was a good one then and now.

I guess John Fox new we were going deep into the playoffs this year so next year we would have a low draft pick anyway so why not trade for Otah.

At first I didn't like the pick, but I also wasn't so sure about the Stewart in the first either.

Subject to the playoffs. Could be as low as 21 and as high as 32. Either way, we don't get a pick next year until late in the second round (unless we trade up, naturally.) I believe we will be fairly active in free agency next year.


I agree, I think we will be picking up good role players, much like this past year. Just trying to find guys that are serviceable or even could surprise ala Chris Harris (I know not FA) or Brayton.
