When a team trades for the 27th overall draft pick do they really expect "mind blowing talent", or do they expect a legitamate starter for one of the 22 starting positions? Wouldn't you trade up into the top 10 or so if you wanted a "mind blowingly" talented football player?
We had 6 rookies make the squad. How did we trade away the majority of our draft? Most of you guys have an impossible standard for Babin, and this pick. He had a year that was on par with other playoff quality 3-4 LOLB's, and we ended up with three starters with 6 overall drafted players making the team from the same draft. We didn't give up a single future pick either.
