    Why is Jax in as worst, they had a need and they got two excellent players to fill it.

    I thought Cinci sucked - they desparately wanted Elis and watch NO jump them, then they take Simpson WR over Sweed,Kelly and Jackson.

    Balt reached huge!!!!!! Why RB in the 2nd when WR is still a big need.

    Jax didn't have many holes to fill except being able to get pressure on Manning and Brady. With Harvey and Groves they did an exceptional job of fixing that problem.

    I can't believe Atlanta traded up to get Sam Baker, gotta say i'm not a huge fan of their draft with the potential it had.

    Jax gave up wayyyyyyyyyyy to much to move back up in the first. Its not who they got, its what they may have given up to get it.

    cinci did pretty bad too

    Balt didn't reach. They got a QB later in the rounds from where they were supposed to pick which was their top need and saved money at the same time and that late for rice? He will bring it, watch them get Hardy tomorrow?

    Just so there's no confusion Jax moved up to #52 not back into the 1st round

    In regards to Jax why did they give up too much, no one of real substance would be available late in the 1st, Q.Groves at late 2nd is outstanding. Their close to the superbowl and they have to get through Manning and Brady so they made sure they now have their best opportunity to do so.

    yes you are correct, I was reading all kinds of stuff while typing this and it was one of those things where if someone says something to you on occasion you might type that. Yeah that just happened to me. I lower my head in shame :unsure:

    well with just us alone, they could have had JT for much cheaper and if their window is now, JT would have made much more sense.

    I agree 1000%, JT would make them on par with any of the top teams with having an ideal run game for anywhere/anytime/any wheather playoff games. JT would put their defense to higher level instantly and take some pressure off their secondary.

    I just like that they saw a deficiency in their defense and didn't wait for players to fall to them they attacked the draft board controlling their on destiny.

    and I agree with you too, but I just think they gave up to much vs what they could have gotten either elsewhere in the draft of from other teams. That is why they sit on my bad day list

    I definatly think the Jags trading a bunch for both Harvey and Groves could bite them in the *** like trading a lot for Crowder and Moss hurt the Broncos last year (way too many holes in both games to give up so much)

    the worst is probably the Lions.
