    Getting Dre on a long term deal also gives some cap relief for other guys this year. It would be easy to turn part of his 7.5 mil into a signing bonus and spread it over a few years. This could...

    Don't think id take that. In our position we need some high grade talent more than lots of middlers. I suppose that gives Shepherd over Boyd, and someone at 24 in Round 2, and a 4th to play with.

    And of those unranked, I'd guess that the Bengals might be more right than the rankers. Word is that Vigil was talking to Green Bay when we picked him, so they picked another LB on the team. So...

    Yes and no. He doesn't have to be tossed into the fire, but if he's ready he can get some snaps at once. Spelling Pacman, taking over for a dinged up starter, and so on. Shaw and Dennard saw snaps...

    I never said the tools weren't in the box. But usually the discussion starts with pulling out the sledgehammer as and end to itself rather than a means to your ends.

    The only other guy not covered in this draft that could leave in 2017 is Gio Bernard, and I couldn't see using a first on replacing him if he moves on.

    I liked how he looked breaking tackles and adjusting to the ball in the air. That's stuff you need to do that doesn't depend on the level of competition.

    The D in round 6 seems excessive even if Core is just what he is - a fast guy that is unpolished as a WR. There's not a lot that can go wrong with a late 6 round pick. The "too many WR in...
