Lack of third round pick is going to hurt in this draft

35 posts in this topic

I don't think the original poster was making a comment on Olsen as much as commenting that it would be nice to have a 3rd round pick to capitalize on a deep draft. Whether or not it's considered deep or not is another thing.

I think it's very likely that we get back into the 3rd round. It wouldn't be that hard to do. Trade down from the first could very well get us another 3rd. Possibly trading a future pick is also likely if the right guy is there. (Knowing Hurney)

It will be interesting to see how things pan out.

Call me crazy but i wouldnt be surprised if we are trying to trade up to get a guaranteed all pro player. There is no sure fire player around our spot in the first and we have already committed a lot of money to keeping our veteran players, we could use more veteran leadership rather than inexperienced players to win but its just a thought.

Anybody else notice that every single year seems to be the deepest draft ever? Until the next years draft rolls around of course.

It's CB deep. That's about it.

That lack of a pick gave us a very good tight end. Picking Armanti Edwards with a 3rd(our 33rd Overall) hurt us bad. Lets learn from that and NOT make any dumbass Hurney trades

It's called hype. When the talking heads make a big deal about every Tom, Dick, or Harry, the masses fall all over themselves about having to get one guy or another...never mind that reality rarely equals the hype.

I for one would like to have a draft where we have a pick in every round... when's the last time that happened?

you're also not going to be giving a 3rd round pick a $25 million contract. you really can't directly compare the two

Thats true, Olsen is a first rounder that we only spent a third rounder to get. That is about the kind of money we will have to spend on our first rounder.
