So we did that trade to grab an extra player in the last round of the draft?

We essentially took our 5th rounder and picked up 1) Adam Carriker, 2) recouped our 6th from the Taylor trade, and 3) moved up in the 7th.

So while we only had 4 picks going in, we will walk away from the draft with 6 new players.


Don't bring common sense into this. It's not welcomed and it will be overlooked.

Watch out for Carlton Mitchell from S. Floria WR or Capers

What are you thinking we should get for dropping down 10 picks at the end of the fifth round, a first rounder next year?

Yessir. I listed them both on my wish list in another trade. I thought both would be gone by now.

I'd bet that we draft LeFevour or Pike in the 7th if either one is still available.

Carriker, our 6th back, moved up in the 7th and added a 7th not to bad for a low 5th round pick.

Maybe I'm undervaluing a 7th round pick. How big is the drop in talent between the last round and undrafted players?

I agree Canes but I wouldn't be shocked for us to bring in the kid from WV as an UFA if he's available. He's raw with a ton of upside - per scouts.

I think it depends on the player. The NFL draft used to be 12 rounds and there were good players drafted 7-12. I am of the mind that the dropoff can be mitigated by a good scouting department.

What I think you're missing is that we ONLY moved down 10 picks. If there's nobody on deck that is a MUST have, you can afford to drop back and get more bodies.

Why grab 1 person you don't really want when you can grab 2 people you might not want. LOL You better your odds of having one of them work out.

I would be on board big time for Lefevour a QB that we can coach up in the next couple years while McNabb holds down the fort.

I'm a bit surprised that Johnathan Dwyer is still on the board. Not that we need him, since we have Larry Johnson...but he was productive in college.

True, that does make sense.

why would we draft another tight end it might be the one position that we are rock solid at.
