So you see no contradiction? I think you should go back and read the entire statement. He said trading players during the draft devalues players because people value draft picks highly.

To now say, a trade of Friday is any different than a trade during the actual draft is odd in context to that statement. Point is draft picks are highly valued during the draft process -- which I think the Friday before hand counts as.

Nevertheless. Did we make another trade? I heard someone say we have 4 picks in the top 61????

say we havent made the trade and its pick 100 and we offer the same exact trade. Since the Dolphins know exactly who is on the board, but if it was made on friday they have no idea who would be available. Thats why I think it is a much better value to trade before the draft

I love how Mike Ditka was just on ESPN and he said look at how teams beat us last year, they spread us out, because we didn't have any cover safeties...He said you get us some cover corners, and cover safeties, and our defense is already that much better...I expect safety early.

It's not odd. He said, during the draft...on the actual day itself, player values have historically, fallen considerablly. You could normally get a a little more value leading up to the draft...but, when the clock starts a lot of GMs become awfully, stingy w/ those picks.

You dont have to side w/ me here...but, it really does sound as though, Carp and Spears will be back.

He is right to an extent.

But fact is we lost in December and January b/c our pass happy O ground to a halt too.

WR,CB,S,RB are all needs and to me we need to go BPA within those categories. I would add NT but that is really developmental and can be solved later in the draft but not after the 4th IMHO.

Werder said, we're gonna try hard to get Roy w/ pick 28 and some change but, it will be tough...and RB at 22 is the most likely pick. Just some insight, I wouldn't live or die by it, though.

He also said it was HENNE that is the key to the trade. Detroit gives up Roy Williams for Chad Henner basically.

My only real prediction was Henne to be our QuinnII and First Rounder.

I dont see why the Lions would want Henne, they drafted Stanton last year. Doesn't make sense

Neither do I but that is what Werder said. But more importantly what I love that is developing is the Rams are going Long II which make pick 3 a mystery.....

Atl is talking Ryan but I think it is to get a trade and maybe fetch a QB later. I can see ATL switching with Balt and taking Sedrick Ellis. ATL would fetch some serious compensation from Baltimore who must be desperate for a QB.

Then ATL taking some of those #2 picks and moving back into the first for Henne. This is where we could come in b/c there is lots of buzz on Henne.
