    There's no guarantee Keim will pick the right one, no, but you're talking to a guy who would get rid of Keim if he could.

    I sure do wish we could bet on their comparative performance, because I'd gladly do so.

    Maybe this is ridiculous but with Hopkins on board I wonder if the front office might be concerned about favoritism between Kyler and Lamb that could disrupt the WR hierarchy.

    I think this is actually a pretty valid point. Don't know if that situation would actually occur, but I could see drama unfolding in that situation.

    Alabama last year is the closest example I can think of a team having 4 legitimate elite WR’s and I bet they would’ve traded two of them for two elite OL.

    Maybe we can lol? We would have to figure out a way of comparing. First we wait to see if our Cardinals draft a RT at #8 lol. From your posts I know you don't put much stock in the grading system used by PFF.

    I guess that could be a possibility? From what I've read about Hopkins, he's not a diva. He models his performance on & off the field like Larry. His biggest thing with Houston was the head coach. Imo, that won't be a problem here. Why? Because if KK does indeed use more 10 personnel, there will be more than enough passes to go around for 4 WR's. Can't imagine Lamb getting targeted more than Hopkins in 2020.

    There's no difference between RT and LT anymore. Those days are long gone. The two highest paid tackles in the league are right tackles.

    Murray did a decent job, but he only played because Gilbert was injured. Do you want to start your formative season with your shiny new QB and Hopkins at WR with a RT that has 14 starts in 4 years?

    You put a 1st round tackle in there and don't look back for 10 years.

    I thought this was about Keim making another splashy move..not about the draft! (unless he makes a killer draft trade).

    14 starts in 4 years = irrelevant

    12 starts in 2019 = relevant

    I like Murray fine. I've defended him numerous times. He's just not the guy I want protecting Kyler full time at RT.

    Even outside this argument I'd still take a tackle at 8 because our depth sucks. Murray missed games last year. Hump has missed games every year except last year.

    I agree with this, but you have to pick a guy that can play LT if needed...meaning I think Wirfs and Becton are probably out. Wills and Thomas could play LT or RT.

    If we could trade down a little and get Andrew Thomas I would be fine with that.

    Comments made that somehow turn into facts...…….

    KM asked if he would like the Cards to draft Cee Dee and he says, naw I'd prefer a RT because Murray sucks.

    Of course KM says he would love to have is ex teammate on the Cards. It's the correct and safe answer to not offend a current teammate or an ex teammate who may in fact become a teammate.

    I'm all for drafting a WR, in say rd3 or 4.

    Trade back until value equals need instead of drafting a WR at 8.

    He may be a good guy but he’s no Larry. Reportedly doesn’t participate in a lot of practices.

    I read that about him. Says he tries to be just like Larry. That's a tough task.
