Then a dynamite return man, then another solid CB for competition.
It is a heck of a good draft.
We can do better than Gaines and Roby (Verrett-McGill, or Fuller-Joyner). We can do better than moncrief alone, although I would be happy if we got him with #77 or #94. Where s the center project? The back up Qb for the next 4 years?Drii archer in the 3rd?
You're nit picking over favorites. Let's say he got the players you want at the same positions in the same order. Would that be better?
I don't really like the idea of trading into the middle of the first. It seems like a move of desperation, rather than a move of value. It worked for us perfectly last year, but if Reid was anything less than stellar, it would have been a mistake.
I would like to get the center, but that is dependent on what the coaches think of Kilgore. The same can be said of the CB's. The coaches might feel very good about Brock and Culliver. It's a bit confusing why most people act like we are desperate for corners, but "OK, the coaches obviously are happy with Kilgore". Kilgore is EQUALLY as big, if not more, of a question mark as Brock and Culliver. Brock and Culliver have actually PLAYED as starters in the league, while Kilgore has not.
The CB position and the C position are question marks, maybe we draft for starters there, maybe we don't, we don't know what the coaches are thinking about those two positions, although I think the CB's have proven a whole lot more than the C.
