I think a general rule is not to act like a troll and then tell someone to chill out for reacting to the tension you caused. I was calm, just slowly shaking my head at your need to disprove that which you did not understand.

In general, a team moves up to address one particular need (or to get a particular player they fell in love with) before someone else with a similar need picks. That is reaching, most of the time. By trading down, however, a team is willing to drop and usually takes the best player available at several positions. These teams usually has several needs, but not necessarily. These teams have gotten better value, historically--not better players---better value.

Even with your example, the Bucs took Barron very high (considered by many to be a mid to low first rounder, but the market for S caused them to reach above other teams--the Panthers included--who might have taken a Safety). ,Martin had a good year, but their need at RB caused them to reach in the draft to get him--most sources had him low first round, early second. The fact that he had a good year does not mean that the Bucs did not reach--it meant they got lucky. Value in the 2012 draft is not based on performance in the 2012 season. So, your point reveals 2 reaches.



youre assuming i dont understand basic draft knowledge which is making you look stupid for taking out time of your day to try to prove a point. you got butt hurt and you need to calm down.

Most stupid people are the last to realize that others assume they do not understand basic knowledge of any kind. You must be an advanced moron. You are right, however, that responding to you is a waste of time.

Troll. Go back the the Bucs Forum.

Exactly.

I'm pretty sure the Panthers hired G-man because he's superbly qualified to do the job, and his experience backs this up in spades, so anything we might "suggest" is honestly laughable at best. I do find it funny that people are actually arguing their points on their own or others' advice given to a guy who has probably forgotten more about the NFL than most of us will ever know.

When you break it down, it really is funny to think about, and I'm sure Zod is having a blast reading all the silly comments we're all making.

As you remember to not try to find a place to sit down and eat at Price's, please get rid of that old vagrant guy who sleeps underneath the 77 overpass down from the stadium because every time I run by he's peeing in a water bottle that I'm pretty sure he also drinks out of later on.
