    We were 2 picks from either Jones or Mendenhall and everyone knew Dallas was taking Jones. Why not trade up 3-4 spots and get the RB we wanted? Then in the 2nd round again 2 picks from Groves or Sweed. Everyone else is getting the players they want. I know some people will read this thread and say maybe the Titans got the players they wanted. So really, Chris Johnson is better than Mendenhall and Jones? Okay and final example Early Doucet, enough said. I'm not saying we should've traded up from every pick but once would be nice.

    we don't trade up because we have a moron for a general manager and a pushover for a head coach

    Okay let's say we trade up in the 1st and 2nd. 1st round we get Felix Jones and in the 2nd round because of the position we drafted Groves. Isn't that better?

    I think that we need to stop talking about this draft and what could have happened. We have to deal with the cards we've been delt...and make the best of the situation. As for us trading up, yeah we should have, but the draft is over and there's no sense in dwelling on MR's countless mistakes.
