I'm not going to over think this stuff right now. Rivers is older, his skill set has declined. That wasn't the question going into this though. It was is this better than lateral move from JB and does that translate into a better team. I think it does, but the threat of JB getting snaps in games as a non starter says there's some open questions here.
Gee, Ballard says if he grades distinctively higher on his board than the next player available he will take him. While listening to trade back offers of course.
And talking to them is a must in the grading process. How else can you set up a board.
We will have roughly 20 players on our board with similar grades in rd 2. So CB will be looking at value and positions of need.
WR, T, do seem to stick out the most.
TE has to be figured out.
Has nothing to do with Rock-Ya-Sin, it has to do with Rhodes, Carrie and Wilson having one year on their contracts (the latter two below average), and Tell being an unknown. It takes a year or two to develop a CB, so drafting one this year is paramount.
