This. If we do pick that high, trade down and get every top quality D-lineman (especially tackle) and linebacker we possibly can.
We should have done that this
year. Does anyone forget that outside of Luck no one could even figure out who was going to go first until the draft hype started?
I called this. We needed AJ Green, for a #2 receiver and future #1, a big O-man that can stay healthy and get the run game going and a vet QB or pick a lower draft pick. The rest dedicated to defense. That is all we freaking needed.
That's exactly what Bengals did. They took AJ, and they got Dalton. Win.
Dalton's just a game manager. But that makes him a better NFL QB than Newton because he doesn't turn over the ball and runs an NFL style offense, balanced. Run & Pass.
We can't run because of the offensive style we have and O-line.
We will still need the same thing this year. A #2 receiver, a big O man that can help us get the run game going, and a QB that can run an NFL style offense.
We also need a PR. If that QB is Cam good. If not get me a damn Vet. I'd take McNabb over Cam. Get me someone that he can learn from. Get me someone he actually has to BEAT to start!
