And the Al Davis award goes to...

I'm going with the Chargers. In a deep draft they gave up too much.

The thing about the Jags is, they could have traded back to the Niners who called them according to Baalke, and they STILL could have gotten Alualu, but they chose to stand pat!?!

who were we planning on taking by moving up?
Jags/Chargers

I think Oakland got a good player even if it wasnt really a need.

Chargers did not have to move up but I seen Ryan Matthews play and he is gonna a solid RB but the Jags take the cake on this one.

just curious if anyone saw a mock draft with alualu as a first rounder? i believe the highest i saw him going was like between 40-45

Exactly, i think it was Green Bay and Dallas were gonna trade up to #12 and take him ahead of us when we were at #13

Mathews is my choice for rookie of the year
Oakland drafted a good player, not their biggest need but can't complain much about them this year. Buffalo definitely didn't draft for need, but also drafted great talent and is still looking to move Lynch.

Jacksonville's pick feels most Davis-like because it was a really early pick and was spent on a guy NOBODY had going anywhere near that soon (that we know of). Denver's pick was very bizarre as well, but Tebow was projected as a possible late first so my pick has to go to the Jags.

I can't beleive no one's said this but I have a conspiracy theory. they purposely botched the pick to: piss off the fan base, ensure they don't impove, sell no tix, have perfect reason to relocate to LA and make loot,
That's exactly why the fans in Jacksonville ARE NOT buying tickets.

Yeah I'm sure Coach Del Rio would gladly go along with that idea.
when in doubt I give the Al Davis award to Al Davis

Chargers are different from other teams. Draft value is really no important thing for them. That team is so close the last few years they really don't expect to find instant contributors in the draft. Thats the reward you get for drafting so well the first half of the decade.

Did they reach? Sure they did. But they probably scoured the top 300 prospects for anybody who could help them next year and came up with only really Matthews.

If you only thought one guy could help you would reach too.
