About the only thing that would piss me off in this draft would be drafting Brandon Weeden in either the first or second rounds.

Just wait 'til the Rev downs a couple of Scotch Nazis and starts talking smack. Then you'll change your mind.

This would be a good answer for the increasing trend towards tight ends. Gilmore would give us someone to put up against the Gronks, Hernandez, etc. of the league. I personally think Kirk would be a better value and give us the same thing. Not sure what the front office might know that would make them want to jump to the top ten for Gilmore.

So would George Iloka and we wouldnt have to trade the entire draft for him.

Perhaps they've asked what it would cost, but I can't imagine moving up that far for any player in this draft tbh...

No knock to Gilmore. I think he's a nice player, but if this team moves up that far to draft a CB and Fletcher Cox is still sitting there I will find a mentally retarded puppy and kick it.

Rev knows his defensive personnel. I definitely trust his instincts when it comes to CBs (though I still think the front office made the right decision last year to grab Von Miller over Patrick Peterson).

I wouldn't get into puppy abuse, but if fletcher cox is there and it's Gilmore I would send a beer straight through the wall.

Lammey is still saying that Kirkpatrick IS the pick if he's there at 25. NOt a huge surprise that they'd be interested in a CB.

I wouldn't be bothered cause I believe CBs can have more of immediate impact in their 1st yr then do DTs. lets face it none of the DTs comming out in this draft suh or marcel darius type of talent. I am just alittle weary of what we would have to give up.

You can never have enough two down LBs with zero coverage skills on your roster now days.

I wouldn't be mad if it was a CB but that high for Gilmore? Seems like its reaching when there are others with more talent at that pick. And it would have to be a lot of ammo given up, like this years 1st and next years.

He's still in complete denial about that dumb take. And I'm guessing he'll be in here in the next couple hours to defend it.

I could channel my fury into a positive response to Gilmore over Cox at seven if that were our original slot. Trading up to take him that high would turn my entire stomach into an ulcer.

for all we know a trade agreement is in place on the condition that if a certain player is there the trade happens.

i do not like trading up that high unless it's for Cox or Richardson. maybe even Kuechly.
but to go up that high to grab Gilmore is bad value. i know he's surged up draft boards but that's #25, our 2nd, a 4th and likely some picks into next year if not our first next year.
he better start from day 1 and be close to DROY for that type of package.
