That's fine. And the idea of having quality ammo next year to use to trade up and get ACs replacement looks good to me. I'd rather have the second next year than the extra 20 slots this year. I get that.
I think most of us here who are questioning the trade are simply disappointed that he couldn't get an extra 5th this year or even a 4th or 5th next year. That would have been fairer straight up compensation IMO.
Miami is going to be really bad this year and I suspect they know it. There is NO CHANCE they give up a 2020 first round pick to move up to 34. A far more likely scenario is a swap of 2nds and then a 3rd rounder.
NFL Scouts are ALWAYS looking a year ahead.
Grigson said that’s, in kart why we took four OL in the 16 draft, because his scouts had hold him the 17 class looked very poor.
Turns out, they were tight. The 17 class of OL talent was called historically bad. I believe Ballard said the 20 class looked good enough to make the deal worth while.
