Everything that happened behind the scenes happened on the decision that we didn't want to spend the resources to move to 3.
If we had pick #3 from the start the behind the scenes would have been totally different. Our decisions behind the scenes was based off of having pick 8.
Here again, if we would have had pick 3 to start with, do you still think we would have traded for Darnold?
I loved him and I was hoping we’d do whatever necessary to get him. We were one of 3 teams really well positioned to do so. Since he’s not a Panther and went to Clemson, he’ll get a lot of hate.
Now, he’s no Winston with the crab leg drills, but it sure seemed obvious that the point of that drill wasn’t a 3 step drop and quick throw.
