In light of the Buckner trade... the medical comments seem to tell us something about Kinlaw.... and I would think certainly apply to Tua as well.
For me... this also says something about Ballard and the scouting team’s assessment of Jordan Love as a # 13 pick.... that is, that they either never had him rated that high OR that they feel he’s a Top 10 lock but not worth the price of moving up for.
Any way we slice it... however a team spends a #13 pick should result in the surest thing possible.
And Ballard’s own words were that we got “an elite player at a premium position”
Yes.... Defensive Tackle.
I’m so glad we made the Buckner trade.
Assuming they were talking about any one player is just an uneducated guess.
This piece was edited so we don't have a clue on who, when or what order things were talked about.
I don't guess or take for granted anything said before any draft.
