    That neither confirms nor denies the Cardinals were comfortable standing pat.

    Bottom line is you cannot predict trades as it takes two to tango. GMs have said that 90-95% of all proposed trades are rejected and never make it to the media. In short, teams are always talking with each other.

    The end result of this debate is that neither of them should have been selected in round 1.

    Probably in the minority, but I still think he’ll live up to his draft billing.

    Strike 3 will & should lead to a big time suspension for Dweed part II

    Bingo. This isn't a "Cards got it right on draft day" scenario. We still managed to screw it up in the 1st round.

    I think he’s going to be a darn good player as well. Imo he’s got more skills than Buc & he’s been solid.

    Gotta love how a Niners loser gets popped and we still know how to turn their misfortune into complaining about our own front office

    When the shoe fits...

    Problem is, people want to crow that we made the 'right' call, as if it was him or Reddick, with no other options. Well, no, see, there was a whooooole draft pool to choose from, not a second-round at best project pick...

    I mean I am certainly not here to argue with you on this point, I just am having more fun laughing at the 49ers for once again York'ing the character issues.

    everybody knew we were going LB with that pick.... I was on board with Reddick...still am... but they need to leave him at ILB...moving the kid around in his rookie season just inhibits his learning

    That was the premise of the OP. That was what this thread is about

    Your first sentence would be a damning statement about Keim in the draft.

    Reuben Foster impressing while Reddick is learning

    Who knows how it plays out long term, but this what happens when you draft players to play a totally different position vs the position they have spent their career playing.


    This was the premise of the entire thread. One player was showing out as an ILB and the other was learning how to play LB. What really has changed other than they look like they were both drafted too high instead of just one of them.
