    we started the draft process with 7 picks? then ended up with 12 via the Rams trade...?

    I always assumed we would have to give something up to get back to where we wanted to draft at

    generally I hate the thought of OLine in the 1st, but in doing so we became a functional team again

    Conklin allows all the moving pieces to work..... Now with the Oline set, we can pick up all the fancy WR's and TE's people like for years to come...

    It's the NFL's fault for not playing like it plays out on Madden.

    Thats my only presumption as to why some are complaining about Conklin. Or they didn't see the Super Bowl (Broncos-Panthers), how Von Miller abused that "RT" the entire game....

    It sounds like Doctson is exactly what Hunter is. Good pick.

    I'm pointing out that the guy spearheading the Dodd hate and name calling was all for a WR at #15 who looks like an even bigger bust. So instead of an All-Pro tackle, we'd have one of two IR All-Stars. It's called irony, snowflake.

    I said it many time on here..The Dodd pick wasn't bad or a reach. Pass rushers are valued big time. He was a projected first rounder, that we got at #33. Unfortunately, he hasn't been healthy and looked crappy this pre season. I hope somehow he improves, but it doesn't look good.

    This team spent 3/5 years picking lineman with their first round.

    All the while this team was lacking talent at skill positions.

    So I can understand people wanting a WR/CB with the first round pick.

    Not to mention, Conklin wasn't just a 1st round pick. He cost a 1st, 3rd and next years 2nd. That's a hefty price for a RT, a position that's more common to get talented guys in later rounds, rather than skill guys.

    For that price given up on a RT, Conklin better produce. So far so good.

    Also, for a guy who seems to have an issue with people that have an issue with the Dodd draft pick, you sure do like bringing him up as much or more often than the people that think he isn't good.

    You must have not seen any thread or spent any time in Shoutbox ever. The Dodd hate far exceeds anything good most people have to say. I think some members only post when they have a complaint to make about Dodd, such as Riverman.

    Someone felt the need to bring up an old post with my concern about Mariota, so I thought it was common practice to find old posts to discount one's opinion.
