In Response to To all the draft geniuses complaining..
Stop reacting on any players, you dont know what a player is going to do and neither do these teams. Its a best guess scenario. But one thing i do know is, bill doesnt take anyone if he thinks he can get them later. He took this safety cuz he had information that someone was going to take him. GUARANTEED.. He had Dont'a and Chandler rated the same but took chandler first because he thought he had a chance at Dont'a later. We had a lower 2nd round pick, he could have taken the safety there but im sure someone else was high on this kid. I dont think anyone should listen to what kiper had him rated as.. because it doesnt really matter in the end.. Those guys are there so all of you guys watch their tv show. Looks like a great character, ST, and potential Safety who also can play corner if need rises. I think he'll add something to our team, lets wait and watch till you peg the first rounders as pro bowlers and this second rounder as a reach or a bust. No one has any information about other team's interest.

+1, although you're going to get blasted
No one knows BB's motivation for the pic but it's obviously he wanted him
He did work him out and said he's seen plenty of film on him and liked him, evidently, better than the remaining safeties/corners and ST players rolled into one. So there's your value. He really got 3 guys, lol. Ya I know that's a reach.
Have heard the Ravens and Chargers were looking at him so although it looks like a big reach, you get them while you can.
Let's let the guy get fitted for his uniform before we say how outrageous the pick was. He might surprise and be worth it and he might not.
The trade, although not a great value point wise, was good enough to get 2 more players where he thought they would go. So be it.
Was the 90 pick a reach? After watching film on him, you can see that when he does hit a QB, he's gonna know it. Big time!
BB did mention Vollmer not going to the combine either. That worked out ok.
I'll tell you one thing for sure, BB looked exhausted and agitated at the presser (yes, even more than usual)
I wondered at the time if it was because he's sick and tired of being questioned for every move he makes. I didn't see a happy man up there when it should have been an exciting time for him and the team. That worries me a lot more than the pick that no one thinks he should have made.
