    I like the D'Brick and J.Anderson picks(I've been trying to pimp both:yahoo: ), but Youboty is my least favorite corner and I don't think we need Hali. I would hope for Cromartie or Joseph to fall to us and a safety with the second. I would be all over this deal. :drool:

    I just hope CC can pull it off and make this an off season to remember.:superman:

    This guy gets paid for this crap? Wheres my "Captain Obvious" pic when I need it.

    I would still try and get the 71st pick instead of the 103rd. If Bush is such a phenom then NY will pay it.

    Now we're getting closer to true value. That would give the team 8 picks in the first 4 rounds, with 7 of those picks at the top of their rounds:

    1st 4,29
    2nd 33,35
    3rd 65,66
    4th 98,103

    Change #4 from Ferguson to Hawk and we'd have a nicely balanced team.

    I like Hawk at 4 as long as we're sure Winston will be there at 29 or 33.

    Wow, I think I might wet myself next Saturday if we had eight picks. I think we had six over both days last year.

    IMO Williams at #4 alone is better value than Bush at #1. Adding two more studs with #29 and #35 would be a bonus. Would we have trouble paying #4, #29, #33, and #35?

    I would be interested if:

    #4-Williams
    #29-Winston
    #33-Youbouty
    Beyond BPA with a 4th rounder being spent on Greg Eslinger.

    Even if it is the same cap hit, it would be spread around more players so it is essentially "better" in terms of cap use.

    Probably more with all of the picks, but there is a difference. Bush is only one player, so all the hit is on his contract. It's a lot easier to swallow when spread out over 4 players, when most likely at least one of them will be on the field at all times.
