This sort of thing happens during normal times, so its only going to increase when there is nothing else to talk about. The theory that's being used is that you don't trade away perfectly good players for draft picks just to replace them with good players. You trade away multiple good players to have the ammunition to make sure you can go get that one great player that you want.
You beat Brees, Brady and Ryan with pressure up the MIDDLE.
No one player in the draft is better at that than Brown.
Middle pressure would also help outside speed guys like Burns and Miller fill their stats with sacks since the QB can't step up in the pocket. And of course he'd help keep our inside backers clean and free to roam and make plays.
We've missed Star A LOT. Just ask Luke.
