i guess he didn't like the idea of being the 3rd QB taken.

Bad news for us. Likely someone we'd want that could have fallen to us won't now, most notably Claiborne. Not to mention the trade down possibility if Barkley would have still been there when we pick.

Yep, this sucks. Likely means one more non-QB is off the board when we're on the clock.

Could mean someone wants to trade up for a QB that would have fallen if Barkley would have came out. RGIII maybe.

My guess is Kalil will not make it past the Vikings unless they end up drafting 1st and Claiborne will be drafted by Tampa.I see us getting Reiff or Martin.I just do not see a DL,LB,or cb worthy of a top 10 pick.To me a OT will have an imediate impact by improving our running game and giving added prtection to our franchise qb.

I agree if Claiborne isn't available when we pick there's not a DL or CB worth top 10 definitely. I'm warming slightly to the idea of one of the top LBs at or below 10, but I still would feel hesitant about it. Inside I'd REALLY hate to pick an OT in the draft that Kalil's brother comes out and it not be him, but I know it would take a perfect storm for that to work out for us anyway (or a probably ridiculous trade). If Claiborne, Kalil and Blackmon are all off the board, Reiff or Martin could very well be the best value for us.

If Reiff and Martin are the best value for us, I would def be looking to trade down 7-8 spots to take a LB and pick up an additional 2nd round pick. We could really use the ammunition.
