    Well, that's a bit of hindsight as well. I would have liked to get one of those safeties but at the same time was it worth the risk of not getting a center to anchor a horrendous offensive line? We can look at it now and say it probably was likely that Frederick would be around in the 2nd, but there was no way of knowing then.

    In the end I think Frederick will be a starter for the next few years, maybe even his career and that seems to be worth the late 1st rounder.

    The only thing that disappointed me was the lack of value that we got in return for trading back. But in the end, I guess I can't complain too much about getting the combination Frederick and Terrance Williams in return.

    Overall it just didn't seem like a tactful draft, but it seems like we may have gotten some solid contributors. Only time will tell.

      I would have stayed at 18 and got the BPA(Floyd) but it is what it is. There is still quite a bit of talent left tomorrow, we have to get a safety at some point.
