Thanks for sharing this. I'm going to try to watch it, as I am on leave from work while recovering from a broken ankle. I need something to do.
I believe he may have had CTE or other cognitive impairment; however, I don't believe CTE makes one a murderer. As we all know, he planned and plotted to kill others. I don't believe we can attribute that to CTE. But I will try to watch the movie with an open mind.
If they feel the play makers they covet will be available at No.44, because of the additional second round pick at No.44, they can afford to trade down to 55. Last year, Ballard refused to do that and felt like Rock-Ya-Sin wouldn't be there if he dropped down further and stood pat at No.34. He could very well do the same if the guy he wants at No.34 is someone he does not think will be there at No.44. However, if he feels he has 2 or 3 guys that he is targeting at No.34, and one of whom they think will be there at No.44, I definitely see him making the trade down. With the deep WR class, they can afford to throw more darts at the draft board this way, IMO, for the skill positions.
The flip side is, if they really like Herbert, they can move up with one of the 2nd round picks and a future 1st to move from No.13 to No.4, which is what it will take. That would also be cashing in your chips, just a different way.
