“The organization has struggled from a personnel standpoint over the years. For instance, they drafted me in the second round. … You don’t recover from those types of mistakes.” — Rob Konrad on the team’s questionable draft picks from 1998-2003
I think if we are still at 12 when it comes around we take eifert so I wouldn't worry. we need rz targets badly.
R1: Doriel Green-Beckham WR Oklahoma (if he's there he's too good to pass on, a la Randy Moss.)
R2: Denzel Perryman LB Miami (smallish but fierce.)
R3: Ladarius Gunther CB Miami
R4: David Cobb RB Minnesota
R5: Adrian Amos Safety Penn State
R6: Warren Herring DT Wisconsin
R7: Kaleb Johnson G Rutgers
I hope not... I really like Austin, and that TE
If Ansah is still there at 12 and we pick Eifert I'm going to scratch my head. Only way I see us taking Eifert at 12 is if Ansah is gone. I personally believe the Eifert interest is mere smokescreen and attempt at tempting a team to trade up with us for him.
I think 12 is far too high to go after a tight end. I think we can get Escobar or Reed in the 3rd or 4th and get the same production out of them. And you only have so many receivers on the field at once. We have Wallace, Hartline, Gibson and Bess...plus Rishard Matthews so we have far more pressing needs that an undersized receiver who may or may not be good. We'd be much better served trading back to the 20s and grabbing a corner like Hayden or pass rusher like Carradine.
He also said instead of trading for Albert we would be smart to trade up to 4 to get Lane Johnson, I'm starting to hate Mike Mayock...
