I'll give the kid the benefit of the doubt, but I was hoping for Ridley, Landry, or a trade down.

Speaking of Landry, I can't believe he wasn't taken tonight. I hope trader Jerry is on the phone with Cle about that first pick tomorrow. I don't care if it costs our first next year, I want Landry that bad.

I don’t have a problem going Defense and I don’t have a problem going ILB. I just thought this dude was a reach at 19.

Here’s hoping he’s not Bobby Carpenter.

I agree with you about the benefit of the doubt but if Jerry won't trade 2/3 spots to get Edmunds or James, why would he trade 17 spots and especially move next years 1st to get to 33. I think they're still trying to package a deal of picks for Earl Thomas.

Well, if the price was along the lines of what the Saints gave the Packers, then I have no problem not trading. That one blew me away.

Supposed "medical issues" with Landry... any idea what those are?

I don't know a damn thing about this kid to give a response one way or another. I am glad we went defense and LB. IMHO, we could use another LB down the line somewhere in this draft.

I haven't heard of any medical issues with Landry, but that would explain his slide. If he is healthy though, I would be willing to move next years first to get him, since we will most likely be looking for another pass rusher next year.
