    our first round picks

    Hopefully all the per draft bitching about the players we lost is done now that we upgraded the three spots most were complaining about.

    We have them for one more year than if we drafted them out of the first. The way it was described on the tube last night, it actually saves the team money.

    We added a beast DT with a chip on his shoulder and a big cover CB.

    We are firing both barrels. NFC North, be warned. We are gunning for you!
    His forte is actually "Press/Zone" coverage. When you read the scouting reports about him being overly aggressive in "Tight" coverage, they are talking about when he is supposed to be pressing the guy to the inside or outside of the zone.

    Not actually providing "man" coverage.

    Truth of the matter is, he is the top rated C2 CB in the draft on most boards or second to Millner who some have as the best C2 CB.

    LOL, me as well. I was going to retire my old K-dubb look for a Smitty look. Might have to get two now.

    Not so much with a rookie salary cap.

    Correct.

    The estimated total value for the 29 pick is $7.2m, with a $1.3m cap hit this year.

    The estimated total value for the 52, 83, 102, and 229 combined is $11.6m with a $2.2m cap hit this year.

    Trading up was the BEST thing Spielman could have done for the cap. Hell, I hope he figures out a way to do it again!
