Yeah, I hear you. I'm not all gaga about what they brought in defensively. I do think Andre Carter will be back once he clears medically but the guy turns 84 soon.
This is why this draft needs to be all about defense. We've talked about this before. Perhaps we should package our pair of firsts and seconds and try to go up and get Brockers and Barron. I'm not sure we have enough ammo to do it, but depending how things unfold, I would spend those 4 picks to get those 2 players. Using the old draft value chart:
31+48+62=10 We'd have to deal with BUF but could get Brockers there then use 27 on Harrison Smith. We simply must land Barron or Smith. If we don't we are going to suffer through another year of crappy secondary play and watching teams convert 3rd and 18s all year long.
A lot of the writers on BDC and even Reiss are talking about trading up to land a couple of impact players. But BB philosophy has always been about value and not falling in love with a specific player. Until I see him vary from that formula, I think we need to stay with who could be in range where we are and trading down.
