There is a zero % chance he would have lasted to #41. And we didnt pay that much to get him. I guess the season will prove if he was worth it.
You don't know that for sure. It is ok to question the trade and still think Babin is going to be great and worth it. Some people question the trade up because it was only from 40 to 27 and do think Babin would have been there.
You can't say we didn't pay that much to get him either. Randy Starks, Matt Ware, Donnell Washington, Bernard Berrian, and Will Poole are some of the 3rd rounders that were available.
Bo Schobel, Isaac Sopoaga, Nathan Vasher, Will Allen, PK Sam, and Jason Shivers all were there for our 4th round pick.
