    If you consider Tunsil as one 1st rd pick then they only really gave up one 1st rd pick.

    I also really like Stills.

    I think maybe that since we have seen such bad play from our tackles that a average play is good

    As we would have for any top LT in any draft. We gave up a first for a proven LT instead of gambling by letting O’Brien select one. We also got a speedy wideout with good hands in Still, which would have been worth another 1st to get.

    True, but this guy played well considering he's practiced with them for a week and is only 25 yrs old I would say he's pretty good. Better than anything we've seen at LT in the last couple of yrs, by light yrs.

    You really think Stills is worth a 1st round pick? What are you smoking? Stills is worth a third at best

    Stills is worth the 2nd rder by himself and they got another 4-6th.

    Stills isn't worth a high pick and he's a free agent after next year. He also isn't cheap.

    Stills has averaged less than 700 yards a season in his career.. thats not bad but not great.

    He's a very durable deep threat.

    Those kinda guys are valuable.

    Wish we could say this about WFV.

    And that may very well end up being the case, which means that the trade wasn't very good, which wouldn't surprise anyone. But no matter all that, he's still a much better LT than what we had whether he ends up being worth the price or not.

    We just got to let that go. It's impossible to say right now if it was worth it or not because it all depends on how this season & next turn out. They didn't trade away two firsts & a third to beat the Saints last night.

    To me, they did it to win a Super Bowl & the team I saw last night looked capable of doing just that. The Saints got beat on a similar drive with a blown PI call. That's the NFL.

    We still have to wait & see how they build on it. If they go the way they have the last 16 years & play down to their competition, then yeah... we wasted those picks.

    But if they play a hurting Jags team the way they played N.O. then again & again... we're going to lose some games. We won't win them all. Got to get to the playoffs. Then make a run for the Super Bowl.

    Another embarrassing playoff loss, wildcard, AFCCG, don't matter. It's time to clean house.

    But if they truly contend (or win) who cares about two 1st round picks?

    He'll be even better over time and when Howard is inserted at LG. Kelemete is not the answer as a starting LG and hasn't been since his arrival. Same goes for Martin at C.....but holy crap the team shot it's foot off by extending him with that kind of money guaranteed. This move will blow up badly.

    Wasn’t smoking anything then, but you’ll change your tone if we lose WFV (like we always do) for whatever amount of time. Stills is a damn good receiver, I’m almost willing to say that he’s a usually always available (healthy) version of WFV and just as fast.

    just because a guy doesn’t get hurt doesn’t make him a first round pick automatically. Odel Beckham and Amari Cooper were traded for 1st round picks last year. Are you implying that Stills is in their category?

    Not implying he’s up there with Odel, maybe Cooper. And, don’t even try to pretend Cooper was this stud before he got to Dallas. Everyone was laughing at Dallas for giving up a 1st for him, but then he went on to play like a WR1. As a matter of fact, yes...I place Stills up there with Cooper. I think we will have a tie at WR2. WFV 2a, Stills 2b.

    Do you really think ANYONE would trade Tunsil for a first rounder only? Do you think finding a “proven” Tunsil at the end of the first next year would be likely? Plus we are getting the benefit of Tunsil this year. So how much do you discount that second first by the extra comp for Tunsil added to the three you gave for Stills?

    Im no GM but neither is BOB.. he gave up too much because hes not a legit GM. Stills and Tunsil are worth a1st, a 2nd a 3rd in my opinion, but hey you know what they say about opinions right?
