I also could be wrong though...
It's certainly minimized value on our team, with Eli and all, but I'm a fan of this pick.
Then again, I was also a big fan of the Andre Woodson pick in 2008, so my opinion on this type of situation doesn't really matter.
Post 4/20 mock draft:
Round 1: Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, FS, Alabama
Round 2: ASJ, TE, Washington
Round 3: Marcus Martin, C, USC
Round 4: Shayne Skov, ILB, Stanford
Round 5: Khairi Fortt, OLB, California
Round 6: Ethan Westbrooks, DE, West Texas A&M
Round 6 comp: Cornelius Lucas, OT, Kansas State
U talk about ELI possibly getting hurt, but what about guys like Rivers who have shown nothing but the ability to stay off the field?
The funniest thing about it all is we have the most injuries of any team at positons like CB and LB and Dline and RB, and yet the one positon we draft a guy as insurance is at a positon we never have injuries..lol
And again, there's no reason for people to use the "Jerry Reese disagrees" argument in a draft forum. While it's encouraging to me that Reese felt strongly enough to move up to get Nassib, my perceived value for the Nassib pick was in and of itself, no matter what Reese did (peep the Barkley thread from yesterday).
