Don't disagree totally but eventually you lose because 80% chance you get nothing close to the player in return. Window is short in the NFL. Win now. This is the problem, everyone thinks this is baseball and you just keep rebuilding for 5-6 years. Not the way it works. The window is short and you need to be competitive with veterans now. Cannot keep putting rookies out there and trading veterans. Now's when we need stability. We need more veteran presence.
Jones, Rowe, McCain can be our veterans, just use #3 on Surtain.
The pick better be Top #16 plus another 1st next year.
Some team thinking they're gonna miss out on the top 2 corners.
Take one of the Top 3 WRs if available. Roll the luxury of having two 1sts into next year, again.
Clear lots of cap space for other FAs looking for contracts in this cap crunch season.
