if we would've traded up for dorsey then i wouldnt be saying that

but we didnt trade up for dorsey.....we traded up for ellis.....dorsey was gone 5 picks before us and we traded up to 7 to secure a tackle before cincy took him

i heard a lot of reports about us being very high on both dorsey and ellis so im not sure we "settled" as im sure you agree

The fact is, we DID try to trade up to get Glenn Dorsey. If you remember right, K.C. would not even play ball with us, so we made the deal to get Ellis. Now....I do not consider it "settling" when you get a guy like Ellis, but that is in fact what we did because we could not get a deal done to get Dorsey.

im not sayin we didnt like him...im think you understand that

its not that we didnt like him or didnt want him.......its that we didnt pick him

anybody can be bought and we werent willing to give up what it would've taken to move up that high

thus the fact that we just dont draft LSU players.....its not a knock on them....its just the truth

once a decade we take an LSU player......i cant remember the last LSU kid we took in the first round

if you look at the facts and the history......its more likely we take an Ohio state kid or a USC kid.....facts are facts.....not knocking on LSU
