because Nick wants to keep his picks.......did you miss the interview with Joe Rose? How are we going to pay them? They're towards the end of their careers, and the whole reason that we got rid of Pat was to gain cap room, not just throw it all away by having to give overpriced contracts to guys that will be 27 and 28 this year
Thing is, in the long run it might not be a good idea for us. With our current picks, we can draft an RB that may be as talented and will certainly have more years in him than either Alexander or Edge AND who will not be paid nearly as much. And we could still pick up a WR in the second round.
There is no back in this draft better than Edge or Alexander...NO WAY. If we could get one of them for a 2nd or 3rd, we'd be stupid not to. Just like KC would have been stupid to not get Surtain...is there a better corner in the draft than Surtain?? Same goes for the runninig backs.
