"Frank Alexander was a guy, that if, if we could uh, he was the one guy we had, the one guy that we had that, if we could get in the fourth we were going to make a trade."

They wanted two guys with their 4th pick, both were there so they traded to get both of them. I do not see the problem.

problem is they better be worth a 3rd, which is a valuable piece of ammo and gone for a 4th round rookie.

we got Greg Olsen for a 3rd, we've drafted guys like Smith and CJ in the 3rd.....these guys better be good.

Joe Adams will be worth a third alone with the contributions in the return game. R.R. put it best, he equates to one less first down per possession that you need.

Joe Adams, wasn't he projected higher than a 4th?

It was for both actually. They wanted both of them at that point but only were going to be able to grab one (likely Adams), so they made the trade to get both guys they had graded in that range. Not seeing the problem here....

Greg Olsen doesn't happen very often for 3rd.. he was a 1st round talent that we shafted the Bears for a 3rd..

and every player better be good, but fact is teams barely hit on 50% of their picks so you can pretend next year's 3rd would be a guaranteed good player or realize the truth is 3rd rounders are hit and miss like Frank Alexander is.. They did their due diligence, you can question it, that's fine, but don't get too mad over it.. lol

Sounds like George W. filled in to deliver that line for him.

What I want to see with trades like this is whether or not they believe the guy theyre trading for is better than anyone who would likely be there in the round they trade out of next year. They believed that with Otah, and that was probably a fair assessment. But they also believed that with Everette Brown as well. We shall see which camp Frank falls into in time.

Hurney needs to join a Toastmasters club to develop his speech skills. It's hard listening to him stumble through interviews lol.
As far as the picks; I loved them!
