As for Klien , I think he is a mid 4th round pick at this point but that could change with a solid showing at the combine. Taking him with the 3rd round comp pick isnt much of a reach at all. Considering that his skillset (coverage and sideline to sideline ability) fits everything that this team lacks at ILB .... the difference between what amounts to an early 4th to a mid 4th is acceptable.
I feel the same way about Rodgers. Sometimes you gotta take a chance to become great.
Love the 3rd rd picks, how would you feel about trading a 4/5/7th rd picks to get back into the middle of the 3rd rd and taking Long? Doing this would give you 5 possible starters and fill most of the holes except the biggest one. (QB)
Check out Duke Williams, he's a faster version of Thomas and does many of the same things.
