Just something I have been thinking about for the past couple of days. We have worked out DE Kony Ealy, DE Scott Crichton, C Marcus Martin, TE Eric Ebron, TE CJ Fiedorowicz, and some other prospects.
This is just a curiosity posed to you, but what if Gettleman were using this draft to get out from under big contracts next year because he doesn't see some of the players as part of the core?
For instance, drafting Ealy in round 1 and parting ways with one of either Johnson or Hardy next year. Or drafting Marcus Martin in round 2 to replace Kalil next year and drafting Fiedorowicz in round 3 to be the replacement for Olsen in a year or so.
What would your reaction to this line of thinking/drafting be? Obviously some need areas would have to be ignored in order for this to happen, which would enrage the fanbase initially, but would you see this as a smart move in the long run?
I only ask because there is a high probability that at least one of these guys could be the BPA at one of our picks, and a slight chance that 2 could be there in the first 3 rounds. And if we do go BPA, this could be part of a plan falling into place for the future.
