I dont understand the logic of drafting two rookies in the top 17, and paying both of them 1st round money, knowing that there is a 50/50 chance each player could be a bust. The McNabb trade makes me wonder what player we could trade for for the 17th pick. Brandon Marshall, anyone? How about a coveted tackle or guard? Id gladly trade the 17th pick for a proven player.
Its like being presented with the choice of either 1 million dollars cash, or a lottery ticket for the chance to win millions or nothing at all. You take the sure thing. Draft picks are never sure things. For every Patrick Willis theres a Rashaun Woods, for every Joe Staley, a Kwame Harris. Julian Peterson to Mike Rumph.
We can find a team that wants the 17th pick. I want to trade it. And by the way it always works out great when I do this in Madden franchise!
