    If true, I'm glad cooper got picked. Better value to get a starting corner at 9 than a guard IMO.

    I'm a pro-Revis anti-trade guy (not the point of the argument).. but Milliner was definitely the pick there as BPA..

    Richard Sherman of the Seahawks, yes that moron who said he's better than Revis, was drafted in the 5th round by Idzik's old team. I'll trust Idzik on this one before I trust Sal's sources. Especially since Dee has yet to play a down in the NFL. I have faith we made the right picks based on the way the draft unfolded.

    This is what I've been hearing all along. That's why they didn't take Warmack.

Not because I don't like Richardson, hes a beast but there is still some very good value in 2nd rd we could probably have taken like the Tank..
    If your going to be a zone blocking scheme obviously Cooper fits better than a Warmack. Has way more mobility than Warmack. Warmack wasn't a good fit.

    Whatever. Schefter said on the Michael Kay Show that a GM told him that Milliner was the best "defensive player" in the entire draft. And Charlie Cassetly referred to him on WFAN as a "top 5" player in this draft.

    LOL, so much hate in those comments, not even hidden. It's good to know that Sal is such a great scout that he can call out basically every single one out there

    Board probably looked like this:

    1. Tavon
    2. Cooper
    3. Dee
    4. Sheldon
    makes sense if projecting availability at #9 but I would have thought 1 or 2 of the OLB prospects would have been on that list

    +1 this
    all we hear is how great this kid is but his biggest downside are the surgeries and injury concerns
