Completely no trade the pick for an older player that is playing at a high level. Thats not giving up. The draft is not a sure thing.
"2nd round pick in the past hasn't panned out, so give up on it completely?"
He has, he is still going to play.
Just because there have been some picks that haven't worked out in the past does not mean it's time to throw them out the window for a player that has already contemplated retirement.
"Look, I'm under contract with the Dolphins," Taylor told Sirius Satellite Radio. "That's where I want to be. It's where I am, and I'm not retiring. . . . There's been no agreement. Is it possible that something happens in the future? They can decide to do whatever they want. They're in charge."
Did the Rams draft Marshall. Warner, Marc...see the trend here. We drafte Kennedy,Hill, D Lewis, Trung...see the trend here.
Yes, the Giants did have Strahan (Giants draft), Umenyiora (Giants draft), Tuck (Giants draft); see a trend here?
Key word hope, Hope we get a return on BL,Worten,Klop,Bryd,Wade.
but one I always hope for. The reality is that we need to build some youth into this team so that we can hope for a strong RUN of consistency rather than hope for maybe one playoff experience with two very aged defensive ends.
I think the way you build a team is throught the draft that being said I would not discount a player like a Chad or Taylor, Marshall because we did not draft them or they are in the second half of their career. IMO
