At least they moved down some before taking him. :-b

:-b That must translate well into football skills, i am surprised Al Davis didn't trade up to number 1 overall to draft him.

Patriots just made another trade. Some times i think Belichick makes trades for the sake of making trades. Their next three picks are compensation picks, so they cannot be traded. The Patriots might actually have to draft a player this year.

I liked DHB going in, and from a real team perspective would take him over Crabtree(given the fact Crabtree is T.O. minus the NFL track record). I took DHB at 17 in the NFL mock over at the football side. But with that said, the raiders could have traded down and got an extra 2nd or 3rd rounder. Same with their 2nd round pick.

This is what I posted at the football side about the Jets.
I like the draft for my Jets so far. We take the best TE available round 6 and we will be ok. Only problem is we will be pushing Stuckey and Smith a year or two before they should be pushed into being the #2 and 3 WRs. Clowney does have an unbelievable amount of potential but he has to show he can run routes better before I feel confident in him starting.

Anyone besides me think the Jets traded too far up to get Sanchez? Not to mention they gave up too much for him?

We gave up 3 back up players(and cleared cap space). traded first round pick which I would expect to give. And with the 2nd round pick, I like the Greene pick more then anyone we would have been able to get round 2. Sanchez was gone by 10. only teams who probably wanted to trade down to 17 or lower was the Browns and maybe Raiders.

Raiders really don't trade down, but I think the Jags might have taken a package of picks to trade down. Cleveland is the perfect fit, as Mangini gets to bring a couple of his guys with him to Cleveland with the deal.

I do like that trade.
