The reality of this was that the Bucs and the Lions made offers and they obviously weren't acceptable. That left only 1 real team to trade with... the Chiefs. If we waited any longer, we would have gotten even less and lost out on some good FA's. This 2nd was as good as a mid-late 1st in any other draft year. How else do you see this shaking out knowing that the Chiefs were the only team offering something as high as the #34? and before you say "but Vrabel was included" realize that this was probably the only way we even got this much.
