I give them an A-, I don't think they needed to trade up for Anthony Davis.
If we had stay put at 13 and Pittsburg had of jumped ahead of us, I bet youd be singing a different tune. If they take Davis at 11, we dont get a OT in the first. In hindsight Bulaga must have been last resort contigency plan. Just think how it would have felt to have two first round picks, and not address the weakest position on the team.
Anthony Davis was obviously a high targeted prospect. Im thinking he was top 5 on our draft board. Just from the interview with Davis after the draft, you could tell that he and Sing had something special. So what we trade a 4th rounder to guarantee we land a top 5 prospect. There was too much to lose if another team trades in front of us to pick him. I think tomorrow you will realize how brilliant a move it was.
Aaahh, not necessarily. I think if Davis wasn't there at #13, Bulaga would've been. And besides if we missed on one of the top 3 OT's in the 1st, there's always good talent in the 2nd. Like Bill Belichick said in his interview, the 2nd round is just another 1st round. If you didn't notice Brown, Campbell, Duccasse and Saffold are still available.
If Anthony Davis turns out good you will be happy. A 4th is nothing to give up for one of the top Tackles in the draft. A 4th is not a guarantee of anything. You might get nothing out of that anyway. Our RT has sucked for 5 + years and they finally did something about it. I applaud it. And it's about time. Under Singletary motivation I think he will turn out well.
You're acting as if I disagree with the pick, I just disagree with the trade. As for our 4th round pick, we've managed to get DaShon Goldson out of it who is a starter in the secondary. Thing is, there's always good talent left, but hey rookie GM no biggie, I still gave them an A, well minus that is.
