my gut reactions so far....
1) I like the trade out of the first. I think "big wr" was first on our list, and to be able to trade down to the 2nd and still be able to have pretty much our choice of WR was a fantastic move. It'll also save on the salary cap to boot. Grade: A
2) Our second pick (also in the 2nd round). A TE? Really? I'm sure he was the best available on Vinny and Danny's playroom, but I'm a bit surprised here. I know you're not supposed to draft out of need, but I think you can carry that to extremes. Is this insurance if Cooley goes down???? I know that the new West coast system has many two TE sets... but I'm just not excited here.. We coudn't have picked the best of our many other needs? Grade: D (time will tell I guess)
3) 3rd pick (also in the 2nd round) Well, I don't mind the pick of another WR as much as the TE pick, especially since there was still quality here in that position. The WR talent was low this year, but boy did the WR's as a group just fall! I do now have concerns about Randel El being a very expensive punt returner (assuming both WR's we drafted work out).
