Well this is a brutal, but truthful, assessment.

Yes by all means, lets use the resources of a #3 pick and come out of it with a Guard! haha



You do realize this means we trade back and get more picks right?


Another fine example of talking out you're rear.

How'd Calvin Johnson and Suh work out for the lions?

Eric berry for the chiefs?

Von Miller, Marcel dereus, aj green, patrick pederson, matt kalil, Ezekiel Elliott?


That's just to name the recent ones. 


Mostly you've listed a bunch of guys who haven't won a Super Bowl.  Let's look at one who did, Von Miller in SB 50.

Veteran Peyton Manning had a less than stellar game due to his foot injury but still managed the game for the winners, leading them on three field goal drives.  Regular season phenom, Cam Newton, struggled in his first Super Bowl appearance, due in large part to Von Miller's outstanding game.


How good was his game?:

Denver's 2011 Round 1 pick 2, Von Miller, had six total tackles (five solo), 2½ sacks, and two forced fumbles.

Carolina's 2014 Round 2 pick 60, Kony Ealy, had four total tackles, three sacks, a forced fumble, a fumble recovery, and an interception.

The lesson here is unclear.  Was it Miller's great play, Manning's experience, or the ungodly high expectations placed on the 15-1 Panthers and Newton that did in Carolina?

You may have missed that I said, "perennial contender."  Miller has been in one Super Bowl in seven years.  The main reason for that was Manning, until his injury, then the unexpected good play of Osweiler up until his poor last game.  Manning promptly retired and that's been it for the estimable Von Miller.  So my point stands: you have to have a franchise QB to be a perennial contender.
