Let's face it, last year there was probably a feeling of when Devin McCourtey's name was announced. As it turned out it was a masterstroke from BB as we drafted a potential career pro-bowl shutdown corner. However, at the time not many people probably had Devin pencilled in at the pick. This got me to thinking:
1. Is there a realistic chance of a WTF? moment at 17 this year or do you feel our needs are obvious and the number of realistic picks is relatively small ?
2. If there is a WTF? moment at 17 who do you think it might be ? Is there a running back, safety, WR or whatever who would represent good value in BB's eyes and may be worth a 17 to the coach. Could he stick with the OLB/DE/OL positions but pick someone who others had going lower ?

I will admit that on my draft board the morning of last year's draft I had McCourtey circled, the only player circled, just wanted to throw that in
I actually doubt a WTF moment this year as our top need is DE and there just happens to be a good group of DE. So like the Seymour, Warren and Wilfork picks, I expect the 1a pick to be solid and expected (Wilfork wasn't expected to dropt that far but once he did the pick was predictable).
If I HAD to make a WTF pick I'll go WAY out on a limb and say a trade up from #17 to around #12 to take Julio Jones who would be a perfect WR for this offense IMO. I don't expect it but if we don't take a DL or OL at 1a then almost anything would surprise me. Jones, Price, Edelman would be an interesting group moving forward with Welker and Branch entering their contract years this year.
