    Arrow PARCELLS : can't stand first-round draft choices ~ ~ ~

    High anxiety
    NFL teams no longer want the top picks in the draft
    Posted: Thursday April 7, 2005 1:45PM; Updated: Thursday April 7, 2005 2:31PM

    Bill Parcells said this a few years ago, but it's even more apropos now:

    "I can't stand first-round draft choices. You can never sign 'em, and all they do is screw up your training camp and your whole salary structure."

    Nothing new here- when he was with the giants Parcells had a history of "redshirting" first round picks and sitting them down as rookies.

    Salary structure? since when does he care about that?

    Parcells always is looking to trade down. Both him and Jimmy Johnson were/are fixated on it.

    If he hates picks than he should sign Abe...
