I am not talking about value of the trade. I am talking about being desperate to trade up because you have 1 player with 1st round grade left and it happens to be a player on the position of need and everybody knows it.

 

It is not a big deal I love Beane just saying that this looks like a panic move (by his own words) and it was not his best moment.

 

I am actually very surprised by what he said. It doesn't make him look good. And he could've say many different things.

So what? We came in with a very specific need. The 4th round pick more than likely meant very little to this team this year. The AFC got very strong this year, Tre is an unknown, this was a great move and well needed…

The Packers use their 2 1st rounders to pick an off the ball LB and a DT with character concerns. Brian Gutekunst must really REALLY hate Aaron Rodgers.

 

Both from Georgia too. Hope it works out like Nelson and Ruud for them.

ok i’m wrong and I do like him more. The tape I saw said 4.47 and 4.54. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

He is fast, quick, and long.

 

His biggest downfall was/is tackling, but hell so was Dion Sanders issue was tackling.

 

We needed speed in the DB room, and we got it.

Yea. Without giving away my day 1 de-brief early.... you can expect some heat for the Pack FO.

Maybe i’m wrong but I didn’t think he ran 4.39 40 at the combine. id like him more if he did. 

6'2" 196 ran 4.39 jumped 37.5" at the combine.  Beane loves his physical freaks

we won’t land him.   we gave up Breece Hall, our 4th, to grt Elam with Booth still likely there at 25 

So we will all get to see you complain for the next two to five years over your personal misgivings about this pick, that’s gonna be so freaking awesome…, 

 

Go Bills!!!

Right,  so we did what was needed. Why complain? This post is sensible. The previous one was unnecessarily throwing shade. Nothing personal, its a message board. That said, ever read the Pats board or Chiefs planet? The ignorance and entitlement is unbearable. Bills fans are better than that. Winning is fun, but that previous 20 years sucked. A little bit of remembering where we came from to get here goes a long way


I’ve been pretty sensible all night. Go read many other posts from others as a comparison.  Like I said, surprised my comment heated you up so much. You keep saying that I’m complaining.  I think you were missing on my tone. 
 

Was it blatantly obvious we needed CB? Yes. Did other teams likely know that? Yes.  Does Beane lose some leverage as a result? Yes. Was Beane potentially forced to pay extra to take ‘the only other CB with a first round value?’ Yes. 
 

I don’t think Beane himself would disagree or have a problem with the above.  It just played out that way. 
 

Like I said, it is what it is. We have a starter, hopefully… and hopefully the next Tre White. I trust Beane. I’m not sour one bit. Would I have loved to see some fortune fall to us? Sure.. but we have a position of need now filled.
