Be careful what you ask for.

As long as he pans out this was a great pick, never hurts to have that solid OL.

This only goes to show how Spielman has played this draft board. This was the right pick for AP and company.

NFL network has praised Spielman so far. Let's hope he keeps it up for the whole draft.

Absolute right choice, I would've been fine with Claiborne, but we'll be drafting his shorter twin tommorow Wink

The only pick that made sense.

No point in selecting a cb on our defensive scheme.

Not a terrible pick, but... really.

You have the worst pass defence in the NFL and a chance to get a real playmaker in the secondary, and you go offence when given the choice between players of more or less equal value.

Does Spielman care at all about winning football games?

Confused


Cover 2 is why.

You also had one of the worst PASS offenses in the NFL...

Pick your poison...

Kalil makes the O-line viable right away. Claibourne is stud on his own and you still need a safety. I love the Kalil pick shifts the current personnel on the O-line for MUCH better production. Cook being back is a big factor in the balance of this. they need to address safety. I think they trade into the first round again to do so and give away too many picks, but they do it.

I am happy with the pick.

Dallas just got Claibourne wow.
