Not to insult your intelligence, but this thread was about people who say "smokescreen". I was just throwing it out their possible motive.
I still believe taking a QB with the first pick is a smokescreen to entice Buffalo, Cincy or Zona. I do not believe Carolina wants to pick #1 and they would like to trade down. If no trade partner is found, I don't believe they actually take a QB, unless it is to trade the QB to another team. I believe they take one of the three top defensive prospects. I'm hoping for Peterson, but as it has been thoroughly discussed, CBs never go #1, so again, I'm hoping to trade down.
There. You have the entire smokescreen thread recapped...happy?
