    Why Can't We Be That Team

    That trades down a bunch of times and just loads up on picks?

    We just drop 1 spot, then 2, then another 2, and another...

    And before you know it we have a crap ton of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd rounders this year and next.

    Leave the word "crap" out of the statement, and I'm down with it. Don't need any more "crap" in our draft picks.

    I frankly don't want to be that team. I'm not expecting any Pro-Bowlers, but at the same time some good solid starters and dependable depth at a few positions seems reasonable.

    I couldn't agree more! AND this is the draft to do it. The more picks in this draft, the more chances to hit!!!

    I hope that's exactly what happens since that would mean we are selecting a player we really wanted!

    they can still select the player the really wanted 7-9 minutes later.

    It's not a cure-all. Jerry Jones does it a lot and gets mostly crap. The Pats do it a lot of have tons of misses.

    Round 2, Pick 14 (46)- Stephon Tuitt, DE; Notre Dame
    Round 3b, Pick 33 (97)- Dri Archer, RB; Kent State
    Round 4, Pick 18 (118 )- Martavis Bryant, WR; Clemson
    Round 5, Pick 17 (157)- Shaquille Richardson, CB; Arizona
    Round 5b, Pick 33 (173)- Wesley Johnson, OT; Vanderbilt
    Round 6, Pick 16 (192)- Jordan Zumwalt, OLB; UCLA
