Our best WR, our primary nickel back, and the best HB currently on our roster (the last two of whom are on cheap rookie deals)...for a 3rd round pick. Which you used to draft a Safety.
I think that's not improving out team either now or down the road.
I feel that Idzik is going to want Holmes gone. He is a locker-room cancer that is making 10 million dollars. He will be cut after this year anyway, and we are a rebuilding team with little use for Holmes. I feel that we will go in a different direction at HB, and feel that there are better HB's in the draft rather than Powell.
