Too often when discussing draft trades we bring up say the Oher spot trade where we netted several players that helped our team. But when I look at Vereen and my posts from 2008....I cant help but think of what could have been:Jamaal Charles. At the time we had lost our 2nd #1, taken Mayo and Wheatley and were sitting on 3 3rds. We traded our first #3 to SD bypassing Charles, a position I thought obvious need. Yes we got BJGE that year(so we needed a RB!), and we traded that pick for a 5th round pick(Slater)and #47 that we added a 4th and a 6th to get Brace. Looked at another way: Brace, Green Ellis & Slater for Charles, 4th rd pick(Louis Murphy---there is our deep threat!)and a 6th(DE Strykar Sulak) If we had Charles we most likely dont take 2 RBs this year so it may also save a roster spot. Yes its 1000% hindsight, but an example why 2007-2009 draft classes werent as poor as they had to be.
