    Does anyone else read this and kinda freak out?

    I was REALLY hoping to hear he is in close conference with at LEAST Zimmer, but it doesn't sound that way, does it?

    I think he has all the input at this point and now it's up to him to act upon it.

    If he ends up picking people that the coaches don't endorse (ala Jerry) then it's a problem. But you can only have so much debate in a 10 minute window when your picking and talking to potential trade partners.

    When you want to trade down, the best thing to do is make it seem like you could draft anybody.

    Aaron Donald is the hot name right now, but Nix is a huge beast of a man who can play NT in either front, 3 or 4...

    I love the idea of adding Evans! Did you guys see the Sports Science episode on him and Watkins? His catching radius is nearly a whole city block!!? JK, but it is HUGE!

    But I think we will move back if at all possible...

    Personally, I think last year Frazier wanted Rhodes and Tyrann Mathieu (the honey badger). I think he didn't want Floydd, and wasn't happy about what Spielman did, even though it was very popular with us fans. Perhaps THAT was were things started to go bad. I wasn't really involved in the hype, I can only give my impressions, which might be TOTALLY off the mark.

    I just don't want to see a split like we had between Frazier and Spielman. Spielman thinks of himself as Sonny from "Draft Day" more than I would like him to...
