Why I am reluctantly OK with day one of the draft

Yesterday was a frustrating first round of the draft. The prospects that I hoped would fall to Denver at 25 did not, and when we traded down the value was not there. To make matters worse the trade was with the often smug Bill Belichick, “When we have opportunities, we take advantage of them. We didn't know we would be able to trade up to where we were for the cost we had to pay. But it worked out that way, so great.''

Then after some careful consideration, I realized none of the guys that I wanted came off the board after 24. Wolfe, Worthy, Jenkins, and Glenn are all still there. At least one of those guys will be there at 36 when we select. So if EFX was waiting on one of those players, they made the smart move. No, they did not get the value that I hoped, but they did get pick 101. That pick could be used on solid DT prospects such as Daniels (Iowa), Winn (BSU), or Chapman (Alabama).

If we end up getting Wolfe and Winn in exchange for our first round pick, I will be a very happy man. Here’s hoping the draft is more fun tonight. I believe we are only a few pieces away from contending for a Super Bowl.
