I like the kid. In fact I really considered him the #1 back overall because he could stay on the field moreso than the other "highly" rated running backs. But is Ryan Matthews really worth our #28, #40, and our 4th rounder?!
Big Dan Williams is sitting right there... Not a single NT is off the board and everything is looking like we were going to get our NT at the #28 spot and a very good RB at #40. Everything was falling in place just like we needed it to BUT! AJ get's anxious and pulls off a ridiculous trade to move up 16 spots and take this kid. Value?! No, Absolutely not! Need? Yes, absolutely. The result? We still have a chance at getting a decent NT but whomever it is they are probably not going to be a day one starter. Which by the way seems to be the M-O for all 10 of our DLs right now.... none of them are irreplaceable.
So where do we go from here? I think AJ has made the decision now that he is just going to take the MOST TALENTED person out there for the remainder of our draft picks.,....... Let's hope he has something on the backburner that we just ain't privy too at the moment.
