It wouldn't be a bad thing to be "stuck" with Edwards either but i think we could trade down for that also.
I think I keep comparing this draft crop to that of others (ie/ where would each guy go, for instance, last year?) Even with that, I don't think Edwards that guy and would rather Wiseman in terms of need, fit, BPA. But these are hypotheticals until we know the order.
There would be some karmic justice is we moved way up. Just saying.
How incensed would you if Obi were still available at #11 and we didn't draft him? I really like him on the O end, but he has seemed to drop a little in some mocks because of age and D by this point of his career. On the one hand, he can be plugged in and contribute right away. On the other - and this is a somewhat disproportionate criticism on Obi based on some of our players this season - I'm D-O-N-E done with guys who don't give a flying fig about the defensive end, be it from lack of BBIQ or lack of effort. If Obi were 19 or 20, maybe I'd be more on board, but there are younger guys who are two-way players, even if less polished on the O end. So I like him and want to like him more, but long-term, I wonder if he's the best, highest ceiling prospect for us. I definitely agree that we need someone of his ilk in terms of physicality and aggression (this is where I bang on the Patrick Williams drum a bit more).
