Fully agree with this. May not be the best value but we're in win now mode, plan A after all.

When is the last time a highly rated Irish player lived up to his hype?

Much better choices if you are going to give away a draft for 1 player. I am watching the Irish game and I do not see it.

I would say Montana, but he wasn't even highly rated.

So basically it has never happened

oh wait, Tim Brown.

For every "no miss" college player somebody hypes, there are 10 "no miss" players who turnout average or worse in the NFL. All you have to do is look at some of our 1st rounders over the past recent years to see why this would be a STUPID move. Dream on buddy

Manti looks like the real deal to me. Would be great to see him next at MLB next to Von and perhaps Travethan as he evolves into a solid NFL backer on the otherside.

I don't necessarily think they should do it but it wouldn't bother me if they did that.

They need more guys who can play and are smart on defense.

I'd only trade the farm for a QB nothing else. Problem is the player better be a stud not a dud or it sets you back years.

This next draft is really strong at MLB - could see 3 or 4 players who could play inside go in the first round.

Why Brady Quinn! He is starting for the Chiefs just last week. Sure it is his 3rd team but he has had a very long career in the NFL.

Schools I would stay away from on hyped players are Nebraska, Texas, both Michigan schools, and Penn State. USC and Oklahoma are about there too lol.

Don't sell the farm for anybody.

Good teams are build through the draft.

Yeah, if they really love him and think he's the answer at MLB then I wouldn't oppose us trading up to get him. You don't "sell the farm" for anyone though IMO, there's no such thing as a sure thing in the draft.

If you package multiple premium picks to get someone and they bust then you're severely set back. For every can't miss linebacker prospect that turns out like Urlacher or Patrick Willis there are several that turn out like Rolando McClain or Aaron Curry.

Much will depend on how Teo does at the combine and where we'll be selecting in the first round. If we're picking in the late 20's and he's going in the top 10 then you forget about him and find realistic targets. Plenty of good linebackers out there every year that can be had without giving up your entire draft.

Love Manti. Not selling the farm. We gonna need them sugar beets. If we can make a move for lower cost perhaps pull the trigger but I am not down with scrapping the future for a single, unproven player. Let's play the numbers and draft many and hit on a few rather than drafting few and missing many.

We have too many needs and not enough farms.
