Thank you. Forgot that signing players can cancel out comp picks. How does that work? Is it all about the money? Does original draft selection come into play at all?

Well I will not be jumping off any bridges but will be jacked! Taking a punter early did not work very well last time. I hope a punter is not BPA when we pick in the 5th through 7th. Now maybe a 7th rd comp I could risk it! Who is the best punter in this draft right now?

With all of the work that's done in the draft, it still has a luck element built in. Imagine having a punter with a booming leg and who could actually be a serious threat to tackle the returner? Of course, that image was brought back to earth when the guy couldn't stay healthy.

dont wanna see another jarvis ones like pick when we already had a player on the roster

nix better be a 3 down lineman if we use a 1st on him
i've read that we've spent more then 50% of our defensive plays in sub packages this year, and the league is growing more and more into a passing league

IMO Nix has lots of questions...ability to control his weight, knee surgery, etc. I never saw him play his best against the best competition. That would worry me.

I'd love Nix - in the second - but not in the first. Unlikely to happen, I know.
