I read several articles that said the Giants,Bengals and Rams had Reid targeted at their pick. When the 49ers traded up and selected Reid the Rams decided to trade their pick to the Falcons. The Rams who were desperate for a safety eventually chose TJ McDonald. Reid is head and shoulders better then McDonald.
I wonder if they would have traded the pick if they knew we were taking Eric Reid at 18. I thought I read somewhere that Dallas traded back assuming he'd be there around 31 because several of the mocks had it playing out that way.
That's what makes this so funny to me - if the Cowboys thought that Reid would be available at 31 and that's why they traded down, and they didn't read the tea-leaves that not only did we want him, but that Giants, Bengals and Rams possibly wanted him as well, then it's no wonder they are struggling these days. Their "GM" is losing touch with reality.
