    If nothing else ever proved they take the best player on their board this is it.

    Does that mean the Matt Cassel experiment is over?

    According to mike lombardi on NFLN this is a future trade bait. He thinks they will put him out in the preseason and if he looks great they will entice some team to give up their 2nd or 1st down the yrs for him
    Similar to what ron wolf used to do with the packers.

    I does seem like a head scratcher but looks more like "future vision" pick.

    Might as well have taken a kicker with that pick.

    I bet a small part of this was to keep him away from the Jets.

    Trade bait? Yea sure, and Matt Cassel is going to be traded for a first round pick like all the dopes were saying last year and the year before. It was a wasted pick. If you're just throwing them away, you take someone with incredible upside like Manningham and see if he can produce. If Brady goes down, they're screwed. It doesn't matter if its O'Connell or Gutierrez or Cassel, or whoever. What a waste.

    I think we'll see Cassel traded by the start of camp. Personally, I prefer Gutierrez anyway.

    i know nothing about this guy, but could he be a project to convert to another position? (Something in the vein of Kerry Rhodes for the jets?)

    Jamie Dukes on the NFLN is an idiot!!! Teams were lighting us up all year down the field???? These people have to be called on their bias.

    I want Bryant or Okam and Silva or King with the next 2 picks.
