There has been a lot of Fleener talk here on the 'Zone. I can't say that I feel too strongly one way or the other about the guy. Having said that, I think there may be some teams behind us who might be willing to trade up for the guy. I don't really think he will be available at #30, but personally, I hope he is, so that we can trade back and get more ammo to move around and get certain players in the later rounds.
I think there are a few interesting players valued in the second round and early third round that would look great in red and gold. I'm looking at you Ta-amu, Zeitler (or other G's), a few RBs like Miller, WR like Quick (or if Randle, Hill, etc fall out of first)
I'm hoping Fleener is there at #30 so we can trade with a team that needs help (im looking at you MIA, TAMPA, BUFF, etc) Hell, Andy Reid would love another reason to throw the ball 50 times a game.
So the question is, take Fleener or take advantage of the hype? I'm voting to trade down with someone that wants Fleener, because the last thing I want is to pass on him and then have the Gmen take him two picks later. Manning does not need another weapon
