St. Louis has done a great job accumulating picks. I'm waiting to see what they actually do with them now.

They drafted Barron, which is fine, but then traded up to draft a fairly average runningback prospect in the first round, negating the only value the received from their trade down from #5 to #7, which was an extra fourth-round pick. I assume they got this pick because they started the day with only six draft picks. I don't understand how any of this is winning. They wanted Richardson and couldn't get him (not really their fault); they wanted Claiborne, and didn't get him (completely their fault); they used their only gain from the Claiborne-sacrificing trade to draft a middle-of-the-pack runningback prospect who is probably identical to anyone who would have been available at #36 (and in the process probably made LaGarrette Blount really angry).
That sounds like a pretty terrible day to me.

Look, man, I know a lot about whatever it is you're talking about.
