    Dunbar is trash, and has never played a full season. Conner is also mediocre at best and can't stay on the field (not that I want to knock a cancer survivor for health issues). Day 2, fine, reasonable, but it gives us one pick as an option, where the top RBs will probably be off the board by the time we pick. Scary position to be in. 5th round and further RBs just don't contribute meaningfully.

    Go take a look at round 5 and beyond and tell me how comfortable you feel we're going to hit on a meaningful contributor or even starter: http://www.drafthistory.com/index.php/positions/rb

    A good RB makes the OL look better too. They go hand in hand. I can't see any way the Cards are going into the year with Chase Edmonds and Eno as their backfield. I think they're taking Najee at 16 or trading back slightly and taking either Najee or Etienne in round 1.

    I guess they'll take who KK thinks fits best for his high school offense.

    been reading lots of Buffalo desire for Najee in round 1 -- considered the missing piece

    in the event the Cards dont go CB in round 1 --

    a few names for pick 48:

    Jevon Holland, Oregon. opted out this past season. played safety and then corner. size, speed, ball skills.

    Aaron Robinson, UCF. think of a poor mans Jaycee Horn. physical press man corner who shows up in the run game as well.

    Ifeatu Melifonwu. Syracuse. king size at 6-3. uber athlete. but a finesse player who doesnt use his size. the fact his older brother exhibited the same physical gifts and didnt do much likely is hurting him a bit

    Personally I would be completely cool with Micah Parsons or Zaven Collins @ 16. I know most would disagree but Hicks has obviously lost a step (or two)and the idea of having two young, super athletic ILB's is intriguing. In my opinion the Butler signing gave us the flexibility to go BPA in the 1st round and both of these guys should be top 15 based on tape. Asante Samuel JR or a WR in round two and I'd feel good.

    Will get you a team with a ton of holes...

    BPA at a position of need within reason is the approach.

    Ideally you go BPA in draft the attain the most talent and then fill holes with free agency and a small smattering of trades. But when you’ve got keim you’re just effed.

    Teams pretty much NEVER go BPA. They may look at value, but the good teams are still filling holes like the bad teams are.

    Depends on where they are in the draft. The best teams don’t have many holes to fill so they can be more strategic, it’s one of the reasons the pats trade down so often. At the top of the draft picking for need is idiotic.

    Pass rusher is a value pick and position of need
    So based on our needs is the second position to consider

    Cb
    Olb
    Wr
    Rb

    And Buffalo already has a couple decent backs. Edmonds wouldn’t sniff the field on that team and people are talking like he could be the guy here.

    No way. We have a fair amount of decent players at OLB and WR. It's tied for CB/RB and it's not close.
