BTW, I believe we were dead last in 3rd & short runs. That is not too impressive for a run first team.
The run first approach got us to a Super Bowl, and got Seattle a Super Bowl Championship . I would say that approach works just fine.
That stat about us being dead last on 3rd & short runs is BS. I'd like to see proof of that as I am 99% sure that the Raiders, Texans, Browns, and Jaguars own that category. Notice they also happen to be the worst teams in the NFL?
Seattle and Carolina both arguably have the top rushing defenses in the NFL, its obvious we didn't run well against them because they are stacked on the RunD. It was also snowing in GB, if you look up the stats for that game, both offenses struggled to get anything going.
Our run-first approach is the reason we became 13-3 and had an NFC championship game.

That being said, a 2-3rd round CB isn't as talented as one we would get in the 1st
My opinion we go
1. Trade up for Gilbert/Fuller
3. Stanley Jean Baptise (if you don't know who this is i suggest you educate yourself.)
I agree with this with this except, I would prefer Keith McGill in that 3rd slot.
McGill is pretty close to the same thing as Baptise, I like McGill as well but you can't ignore the vertical Baptise has.
Because Baptise played in a tougher conference than McGill, and in my opinion had a better season, I went with him.
McGill only had 1int last season despite being the top CB for Utah
Baptise is a converted WR
and despite missing three games last season, and not having nearly as much playing time as McGill, had 4 picks
