So instead of reading "their" second pick in the fifth round, it should have read using "the" second pick of the fifth round. That makes sense.
So...we get Wright for a pick that we got for nothing basically.
Wright could pan out or flame out...as far as I am concerned spending a 5th rounder on a guy who plays our thinnest position is a no lose proposition. If he hits big then it's a great move...if he busts then it was only a fifth rounder.
People are getting a little over excited about this whole thing. I've seen a few posters who are acting like we spent as 1st on the guy....relax...I hope by now Saban has proven he knows what he is doing.
Yep, that was a misprint. We used the second pick of the 5th round to select Wright. We got a 7th rounder from Green Bay for Bedell.
2006 Draft Picks
Round 5: Manuel Wright
Round 7(from Green Bay):
We will not know that until the final roster cuts. Lets hope he sticks!Originally Posted by zeke0123
He already stuck. We traded Bedell last August to Green Bay. He made the team in 2004, so we get our 7th rounder.Originally Posted by bright-light
I miss Brad Bedell. Such a team leader and so much talent.
