If i am a young HC with my 1st NFL assignment looking to make a splash on the weakest part of my team, do i spend my 1st round pick on say the CB from Alabama or do i excite my team and it's fan base by adding a solid citizen with unquestionable character who happens to be the best player in the league at his position .
Revis might be worth atleast 1 TD to the Bucs which immediately improves their miserable pass defense and throws an assist to their offense.
As far as the JPP / Ziggy conversation goes, u made the comparrison along with some of the so-called experts , not me. If all the teams that didn't draft JPP knew what he was before hand, do u think they would have allowed him to get to the giants. In Ziggy Ansah you have a player who's new to the game yet is exhibiting extra ordinary play making ability. There's no evidence that the kid is a slacker off the field or on it. Everything checks out and the drills match the tape, so where do u take this player. I didn't make the comparison
Those who don't learn from history are doomed to repeat it.
If you read my post to preclude questions like yours I took the top 200 players according to a draft site and I posted a link to the site so that fans would tell me thier choice with the guys available . Agreed, I don't know how they are going to come off the board and no one else does either.. By using a top 200 list the poster loses control over who is available just like the real draft- get it?
You see fans on this site taking CB Banks in the third! Where the consensus is that his is a borderline 1st.
As far as Revis value again it is Revis taking 13 mill of cap room or Milliner and 11 mill of cap room. Say William Moore and Goldson as Free agents making 6 mill a year.
It just comes down to do you want to allocate 12% of your cap to a CB. Do you have other critical players on your team coming up for FA, In the case of Minn, it is Jarred Allen, how is he going to feel about a guy coming in making 25% more than he is, or What about Von Miller in two years, he may want to be the highest paid.
