Coples vs DeCastro.....and Eric Winston
I really wanted Dave DeCastro in the draft. I understand Rex said Coples was the best DE and I am not going to argue with him. I am disappointed that we didn't pick up DeCastro though. If we had signed him we could have let Moore go and saved 3 million on the cap. Then instead of restructuring Hunter we could have cut him and saved another 3 million. Eric Winston signed a 4 year 22 million dollar contract with the Chiefs.
I'll give Rex best DE in the draft but DeCastro was talked about as a once a generation player. In my opinion the TEAM would have been better with DeCastro/Winston vs Coples Moore and Hunter. If we locked up Slauson next year our line would have been set for the next 4-5 years. I believe that line would have handled business on their own without us having to keep a TE in for blocking or running a jumbo package with DuCasse.
I know the draft is over but it's slow. If you are going to post 'Haha draft is over' just keep out, some of the trolls on this board have made this site unreadable lately.
