In response to mthurl's comment:
I don't want a receiver in the first round, they are a dime a dozen (at least the ones that aren't all that special). There is probably 5 guys we can have in the second round - yeah Hopkins won't make it that far - and if we do draft him in the first, we could do a lot worse, but I want them to take a defensive tackle. This draft is deep for defensive tackles, yet there is always a run on them and before you know it they are gone half way through the second.
So yeah Hopkins would be a solid solid selection in my opinion and I'm sure he would do well here instantly, but I don't want to see us pass up the chance to draft a defensive tackle that normally wouldn't be there where we are selecting in the first round.
But, DT is deep which means you can get a good one in the 2nd rd. Your logic is again off which isn't surprising.
Jesus, dude. Do you ever make sense? If it's a very deep DT draft, rushing in to get one in the 1st rd doesn't make sense, unless they start going off the board left and right.
you're right, that makes so much more sense. If there is five guys slated to go in the first round at defensive tackle, where as there is usually only three slated for the first round...wait till the second round so you don't get any of that talent. Brilliant.
You ever watch the draft? This is what happens..player comes off the board at one position that is deep, then another, then another...someone says, there's a run on the defensive tackle position. All of the sudden everyone that needs one tries to trade up to get the remaining higher rated one! Just because the position is deep and talented, doesn't mean that the guys after the highest guys are just super. It usually means you end up reaching for need on a player in the second, who should of been picked in the fifth (See Tavon Wilson).
