    Blackmon or no Blackmon?

    I know we might be able to trade back in the draft and still get Blackmon.

    But my question is this, if it came down to it:

    Would you rather grab Blackmon at the #2 spot, or trade back and get at least 2 first round picks later in the draft and a couple other picks in 2nd or 3rd in this or next years draft and lose out on Blackmon.

    Basically: Blackmon or trade down and no Blackmon?

    I know its all hypothetical, but i want to see your personal opinion. would you rather trade back and not get Blackmon and maybe land Floyd or Jeffery and another position of need, or just take Blackmon at #2.


    For me personally, id rather take Blackmon then two 1st round picks that werent gonna be him.

    your thoughts?

    If I absolutely knew we couldnt get him, even at the 4th overall pick, Id have to choose keep it & take Blackmon

    Just a little humor for the morning...

    I would like to To put my two cents on this story if I may. Coming from California where weed is virtually accepted and almost legal, this story puts issues like smoking weed into perspective. In most places marijuana is still illegal and shunned upon like its heroin or some crazy drug. I view maijuana just as I would someone drinking a few beers after work or taking some Valium to relax. My views are totally different since I have lived in California my whole life and its socially accepted out here. Just thought is share my opinion.

    You are so right bruce4life. I came to Cali 4-5 years ago from NY/NJ and find the acceptance of weed so much greater out here than back East. I'm further north from you in SF and there's a smoke shop in Haight Ashbury called Puff Puff Pass. Where were all these shops when I was in college??

    BTW, thank goodness we got beat out on Blackmon. Karma, what goes around, comes around.

    Go Rams!
