    to them he may be... Buffalo is cold as hell and a big, fast, strong WR is exactly what they need for a young QB.

    I'm not sure I like your draft scenario better than what we actually got. In your scenario we get a better WR on paper, a weaker LB, the same DE, and the exact same CB prospect. In your scenario we lose our 1st round pick next year plus picks this year or next year to move up for Desir or Borland.
    It would have been too expensive to move up for Evans. You can't mortgage your future that much. It isn't prudent at that juncture.

    Buffalo did it for Watkins..... this was about us giving up 2 1's or more for Evan's. I thinks highly of Evans but 2 1's plus a sweetener is a bit egregious.

    no one will, thats how this board operates.
    the 'real' fans have zero independent thought. once a player is cut or walks in FA, then they will proclaim he is no good or knew he was a bust all along
    1) CB D Dennard
    2) OLB R Shazier
    3) DE J Ellis
    4) WR M Bryant
    5a) OG D Yankey
    5b) OLB J Tripp
    6a) RB D Archer
    6b) NT D McCullers
    7) WR J Janis

    If this board is so horrible, why torture yourself by continuing to participate?

    I'm sure that plenty of other boards would love to have an "independent thinker" like you...
