AFTER the draft, I imagine there are 4-5 players that we would consider (maybe bringing in 2) based on what came to you in the draft
IMHO...... McCoy would be one, maybe a RB (if we dont draft one), maybe a SS....if we dont draft one.........
Hold them picks!
I agree with this.
Jacoby is a quality backup at a low price cause he's still on rookie contract. AND New England already paid his signing bonus so he's even cheaper for us.
I don't think the NFL see's Jacoby at this point as a potential starter. (I think Colt's fans overrate his ability quite a bit.) So he's not going to fetch a high draft pick. We would be lucky to get a 4. But most likely he'd only be worth a 5 or 6. I mean they just don't give out high or mid round picks for guys who everyone hopes will remain on the bench.
So if you are looking at say a 5th round pick. Are you likely going to get someone of similar or superior ability in the draft for that? What about QB's. Do you think you could draft a QB who would provide equal or better ability as a backup?
And lets be honest. If Jacoby leaves here and signs a 4 million dollar backup QB contract someplace else, we'll probably get a 7th round compensatory pick anyways. And if he signs for more money than that, we would get a higher compensatory pick.
