We need to be lining up guys from New Orleans to Tuscaloosa and bringing them into camp to try and fill this position. It's a low cost high risk pick, granted. But do I really need to mention the picks we have wasted or the players we have passed on? This guy plays at a positon we need. If he works out, great. If he doesn't, what did it cost us, a 4th rounder? If that's the case, give me back my third rounders we spent on James Allen, Cie Grant, and Sed Hodge. gimme back the second rounders we spent on Devery and Stinch. Give me back the two firsts we spent on Sully definitely. We have drafted players who will sit at positions we didn't truly need for years, a 4th rounder for this guy would have been no big loss. Didn't we take a huge gamble on A-Mac? HE has as many questions about him as anyone, but the hope is he will develop here. Also, I was told John Pease was a master motivator on the d-line, isn't he supposed to be the guy that will egt Sully where we want him to be? He couldn't develop Wright?
I agree -- Sully was 2 1st rounders -- taking a chance on a guy with a 4th is well worth the upside potential

all good points whodi and 4saint,
im just asking us to stop wasteing picks on the players you mentioned and possible waste on wright.
i want us to go and get guys who can play the game, and everybody knows it.
i want those blockbuster deals for corey simon or richard seymour.
i want us to go after guys who will help us today on.
and thats everywhere not just the d-line.

it seems this franchise always looks to the future when they never addressed the present.
to me, wright is a player who will be good in a few years, if things go correctly.
i would rather us package the fourth and all those picks we gave up for stinch and sully and cie and allen and hodge and get a player who plays.


please bear in mind that i didnt want to sound like a 6 yr old kid with a case of the "i wannas"
