    No way Davis would be there at 12. Likely none of the top WR would be there.


    In this case the best trade was the one we did not make

    Have to agree with you here. I didn't think they would ALL be gone by pick 10

    The whole idea of trading down sounded good but it would not have worked.

    sometimes it does, but you need a trade partner and an agreeable draft board

    It would have been a mistake to trade if we had a partner

    I still feel that we could have traded down and got a solid pick at 12. If all the WRs were gone, then we could have Hooker at 12, then OJ Howard at 18, and pick up Awuzie at 33.

    But given that Trubisky was gone the Browns were looking to trade down not up as seen by them moving down and letting Houston have Watson. Moving down to 12 sounds great but it's obvious Cleveland didn't wanna move up.

    Thats true, but they weren't the only ones calling. JRob was on the phone with GMs, thats why it took him to the last second to say "*** it, we pick Davis."
