Reading Jerome Solomon in the Chronicle, and reading between the lines, we came close to blowing our RB selection.

It seems offensive coordinator Rick Dennison favored Mathews over Tate. But the staff was split over the decision which was the better fit. When the chance came from Minnesota to trade down in exchange for an extra 3rd, they jumped on it, but was then taken by surprise when Minnesota took Mathews. Sitting at #62, they became concerned they might lose out on their second choice and managed a trade up to #58 and managed to get Tate.

Then at #59 Cleveland grabbed the other big back in the same mold as Tate, Tennessee's Montario Hardesty. It isn't beyond speculation that had we not been able to move up, Cleveland would have taken Tate.

It was that close. You roll the dice when you trade back, especially when you have your sights on a particular player.

I would have traded back #58 and then he would have gone @ #57. So, I would have traded back down some more to get more picks, only to realize I wanted somebody I had forgotten about. So, I would have traded our first rounder next year to move back up and get the guy I wanted....wait, he's not going 'till the 4th anyway! Dang it!!! Well, I'll just take him in the second since i burned next years 1st rounder on it...

Um, OK I did it, but I forgot about the other guy I actually wanted in the second. I'll have to trade back up. Can I trade my first rounder for 2012?

We might need to change out my beverages at the draft table.:shots:

You have your RBs confused, Mathews went in the 1st round at #12 to San Diego, I believe your talking about Toby Gerhart. Doesn't change your premise, just the names.

I hate to admit it but that is EXACTLY what I was thinking when they traded back.
