That's if you're under the impression that TB is head-and-shoulders above the other choices
. There's quite a few folks that don't think he's that far ahead. I see them as basically 1A, 1B and 1C at this point.
We can only hope the combine and Pro days help sort this out better.

We shouldn't take Clowney because he's not a fit in Crennel's defense.
We shouldn't waste the 1-1 pick on a guy who's going to play RT, so no Matthews.
So, what's actually wrong with the argument that there's nobody worth the 1:1?
There is no consensus "lock" in this draft according to many. If Bob / Smith / BoB can deal backwards and pick up some depth, many would be hard pressed to say it was unwarranted.
So yeah, taking a guy at 1:1 if you can trade back to 1:4 and still get him is a wasted chance.
Lord knows I'm not betting on the Texans brain-trust to wow me with trades though.
