Sometimes you just have to stay where you are and take your man rather than trade down and end up with a guy you didnt like as much.
Looking back I am proud of my early analysis post and stand by it. Alot of posters in this thread cant say the same thing. Overreact much? SWTbound?
Looking back after the 3 year rule I can safely say that I am happy with this pick as you can never have enough good linemen and Brown is a good one.
