I think your to optimistic. You dont give up the future and a 3 at that for this guy when u have the next pick in the draft. If he's that great you take him with your next pick. you know what kind of value we got for a 3 last year? olsen. So if this guy doesnt produce at that kind of level its a bad pick. There were players like brandon marshall who went for a 3 or less. U sir are retarded.


Brandin Marshall is a head case and went for 2 thirds. Try again.

Yes they had the next pick , but wanted to add WR and pr there.

Not a fantastic move, but absolutely is not a bad move. Guy can rush the passer and that was a big need.

Tells me they think next year's 3rd will be a late pick. If they like the guy that much, I'm on board. We definitely needed a pass rusher.

Did they think that when they traded away the second a couple years ago for edwards?

- 03/20/12 NFL DRAFT SCOUT RISER: Frank Alexander, DE, Oklahoma: A few weeks ago, football was the last thing on Alexander's mind as doctors at the Combine found a previously undiagnosed heart condition that kept the defensive end from working out in Indianapolis. But after furthers tests, those reports have proven to be false and he was able to participate in Oklahoma's pro day last Wednesday. He performed well in every drill, including a 4.76 40-yard dash time. Alexander also looked fluid in the 20-yard short shuttle (4.57), 3-cone drill (7.55), vertical jump (34.5") and broad jump (9'9"). He posted 24 reps on the bench press and measured well with 35 1/4-inch arm length and


83 1/2-inch wingspan


Not that bad of a pick, good measurables, produced last season. I can get behind it.

Huddle: Fug you Hurney for reaching and trading for pass rush.

God, I hope we're planning a switch to a 3-4.

Was hoping for Crick or Malik Jackson. Saw that Josh Norris thinks he's a bum.
