Payton doesn't pick offensive line in the 1st round anyway.

Looking at the list there should be a solid OLB sitting there when we pick.

Even the best interior O-linemen usually go late 1st or 2nd.

I'd love to trade down, but we never do.

The rams or raiders will take Jimmy grahams contract with open arms, probably for a first rounder aswell

Knowing it will never happen though, which is a shame because Jimmy is not the player many peg him to be.

I would love to trade down a few spots, not many but just a few.

I was hoping for a top notch ILB'er in the first.

Edit: Or even a guard.

I didn't believe this could true until the last few games of this season.

Lately he's playing football like he's on a basketball court.

I first noticed it when we played the seahawks in the playoffs

Jimmy came out in warm ups, shouting and screaming, nearly causing fights with the seahawks defenders about how much he's going to beat them

You would think "wow Jimmy is fired up, no ones going to stop him today"

How did it finish? Jimmy Graham, 1 catch, 6 yards, 3-4 drops and he was so intimidated he flinched whenever he saw a seahawk defender.

The patriots showed that when you got physical with Jimmy he either doesn't want to fight back and wusses out, or flat out drops the ball because he's intimidated and not focusing.

Re: Draft Selection Slot

Jimmy isn't the best TE in the NFL, but he's easily top 3 or 4.

This year he was the 13th highest paid TE, next year moves to #1.

He'll be paid 1 million more than Gronk (average salary)
