The Rams couldn't move fast enough on that one. What... 24th overall! Steven Jackson? Trade - move - trade - call someone HURRY
Yeah, dolphins gave 4th round pick. Dunno why the hell we did, though.
The Vikes were also interested in Vernon Carey, and they needed to secure him since Andrews was already off the board. I dont think its a bad move at all for them
I doubt they viking would have past of udeze for carey. I just get the feeling the dolphins like giving away picks (examples 2 round for feely, 2 round for greenwood, 2 round for w. smith). I think w. smith was good, but of course they tried to fix mistake with drafting e. moore who got arrested recently.
I agree with you that the Vikes probably weren't going to take him, but the Dolphins entire season could have depended on taking that risk. They needed to beef up that right side of the line and with Andrews gone, Carey was the next best O-linemen. Taking Smiley or Sneed there would have been pushing it, but i guess they could have traded down and picked up some more picks. But when a guy with Carey's size and ability is there, you really want to lock him up.
They do make some very questionable trades, but they also got Boston for a 5th rounder.
