Don't get it at all. with all of these teams trading up for middle round picks can't understand why we just sat back for Wilson. (Yeah I will come back next season and say how much of a genius JR is for the pick) Just thought that we could have made a move this year.

Kind of thought there might be a chance we moved up when Reif and Decastro slipped as far as they did.

We didn't move up in '04. We stayed put and drafted Rivers... Then the trading happened.

Reese said in his pre-draft presser that he had guys 15-32 rated about the same.

Why trade up if you believe the players that fall to you are just as good?

Look at what some teams who did move up were giving up. If the Giants thought that guys were the same value throughout most of the draft then why not just wait for someone else of simlar value to come to you.

I think Wilson is a good pick. I don't know what Reese and company look at value wise and how they determine value, but if he liked Wilson enough I'm content.

What was the sense of urgency trading up? Look how much talent is still on the board. Id' rather see them move up in the 2nd or 3rd.

Not to mention, Bradshaw's foot is always a timebomb.

The guy was the ACC player of the year

+1. I'm not gonna lie. He isn't the guy I wanted, but most of the players I wanted were gone anyway. I'm no scout and Reese & Ross know these prospects way better than any of us do.

Seemed like the year to do that. I did also acknowledge that I will be praising JR after next season, so you are the one that needs to chill out.

Maybe the reason is the same reason Jerry is the guy making the picks and the rest of us slobs are sitting here posting instead of making the picks:)

Ugh, why didn't Reese move up in 2009 to draft DHB. Or 2010 to draft Brandon Graham. Stupid, stupid Reese.
