6'0" 225.

Big in the box safety. Good pick at a position of need.

Good pick but it was not necessary to trade up to get him.

?? I dont think he would have made it to our pick. Skins, Bears, Jags and Raiders is where I think he could have landed. Glad we stepped up.

I could've seen the redskins taking him, if they feel strongly enough about him.. not worth the risk, not over a 4th and 7th rounder

Like that we didn't overpay to move up to get a player we wanted.

Rotoworld had a post about how the Steelers were talking to the Titans to trade up to draft him to...so...there's that. Just another team who wanted him.

This draft has absolutely zero - read: ZERO- to be b!tching about. And yet, I haven't seen you type one positive thing in two days. Every single team in front of us needs safety help. No you're right, no way he made it to us without trading up.

On top of that, history tells us just the trade in and of itself probably afforded me - all of us - more excitement for 90 seconds than that 4th rounder likely would have in his career.

ermmm... i bounced out of the office early to, well, you know, take part in "le celebracion," so i'd been, well, celebrating by the time i wrote my post.

honestly, i just totally misread your post and thought you were saying it wasn't worth the 4th/7th to go up and get him.

my bad. Anxious Smile

Hasn't been said yet, but with Dwayne Harris and now Landon Collins we have the best gunner duo in the NFL for the punt team. Hopefully that means we won't have to worry about Sproles or anyone else breaking any long punt returns on us this year.

No I re read my post and I can definitely see how it was taken that way lol what I meant was if WE felt strongly about Landon Collins we shouldn't risk waiting for him over not wanting to lose a 4th and 7th

I'm thrilled we did something about the safety position, and hope we're not quite done just yet there, would like to a FS like Josh Shaw late to come in and compete or my dream scenario.. after the draft we trade a pick next year to the Browns for Tashaun Gipson but that's unlikely

Anthony Harris led the nation in interceptions 2 years back and could be had with our 5th round pick, possibly even the 6th. He visited with us as well. I think you're right in that we will draft another DB.
