Yeah, here is the thing though. This draft class is weak. Next year's is strong. I would love to get an extra second in next year's class. Good teams like Evil England make trades that allow them extra picks down the line. They pick smart and get extra picks in subsequent years. Thats what we need to begin to do too. We need to stop trading picks away and start accumulating them.
I have enough faith in Reeves, Moulden, Bennet, and Smith to hold it down. In fact, I am actually pretty high on Smith. He has great hands, good speed, can jump high to deal with tall WRs, and will come up and support the run. In my mind, he can be a starter for this team.
