This draft wuz a trench draft, it is gonna make next years draft that much more exciting because i could see a run on skill positions.. CB, S, WR. We are gonna load up if nobody shows anything this year.


which is why I think it would have been better to trade our 4th for a 3rd next year. 4 picks in the first 3 rounds to draft skill positions.

This was a question mark for me. The only thing I could think of is they didn't see anything they liked. I figured when Kenan was there in the second, that was the best chance we'd draft one since Rivera had attended his pro day personally etc.

Which team was a willing trade partner to do that?

all of them, thats what the value is, a 4th this year is worth a 3rd next years. Always been like that. Kiper stated it as well during the draft.

I don't think any receiver had the total package this year, except maybe Deandre Hopkins but he may only ever be a low to mid-tier #1 WR in the league. Only time will tell. There wasn't an AJ Green, Calvin Johnson or even a Julio Jones type in the draft this year. When a versatile slot guy is considered BPA at receiver, you know it's not a good year for WRs.

Why did we workout and meet with tons of wide receivers throughout this whole process and not draft one? Was it all just one massive smokescreen? I figured by working out that many at least one would have been drafted by us. Did the cards just fall a different way where it didn't make sense?

Personally I am quite surprised we passed on Patton in the 5th round.



IMO we had 3 first round guys to choose from at 14

Vaccaro, Hopkins, Star Star being there made it easy.

After that it was a matter of BPA.

Short was a borderline 1st round guy.

and the 3rd day picks were all BPA (by the Gettleman board at least)
