    Nice article, writer has a # of good football and BB insights; but needs a better editor.

    nuances maybe?

    This quote below leads me to believe we are more likely to trade out of #7. Can you honestly point to any one player available in top 10 that you would upset the cap structure for?

    but just what would we trade for? we can't use a ton of picks. Maybe think 2 trades then we trade down in 1st to get more picks that we then trade multiple picks to get an extra 2nd or 3rd round. that would seem logical.

    From the Butterfly-Flapping-Its-Wings-In-Panama-Starts-A-Hurricane-Over-The-Atlantic theory of how small/obscure influences can dramatically change history comes the fact (assuming Lombardi is correct) that Belichick fell prey to bad info about Warren Sapp and passed him in the draft. All Pats fans owe that anonymous source of misinformation a thank you because if BB had taken Sapp in that draft it's fairly certain his tenure in Cleveland would have gone better and who knows how that would have distorted BB's career trajectory. Somehow I doubt we would have ended up with him - as it was it cost a mint in picks to get him. weird...

    Wow... Never would have come up with that conclusion after reading this article. You're probably right.

    Oh and very good article too.
