    Big fast dude that averaged 19ypc playing power 5 football. XM88 dudes loved him. Said he was a hands catcher that ran great routes.

    I might not like who we passed on to get him, but I don't see anything to dislike about him.

    How do you know he would have been available any later? No one knows that. It's obviously a player they like and they felt like someone ahead of us was planning to take him. Maybe they're right. We'll never know. If he turns out, who cares that we gave up a 5th and a 7th.

    How do you know we didn't need to give up picks? Is the rest of the league going off the ESPN big board?

    No, I think the fact that he was graded lower by every legitimate source informs us. Again, don’t hate the pick in and of itself, just highly unlikely someone was going to jump them because he had a good senior bowl.

    It just seems to me that jrob has all of the same information available to him that we have. All of the mock drafts are just an echo chamber. At this point in the draft, I'm all for going after guys that you think will make an impact.

    Clearly we didn’t think he would be there later in the round.

    Not thrilled with trading up but it’s pretty apparent he was a target and they had intel that another team was likely to scoop him up beforehand. I’ll reserve judgement until seeing him play.
