    In Reggie we trust. I would have preferred a DT Franchise player like Floyd or Star, but Reggie has forgotten more about football than the most rabid fan knows. Picking up another pick in the second round was huge. I would have liked one in the 5th to go with it.

    Of course it was a gamble, but what draft pick isn’t ? The kid has skills, and he has something to prove. That’s why Reggie got him. Great pick in a weak draft class. Getting 42 is just icing on the cake.

  • Tim Martindale

    Yes great pick wish we could have got a 5th too though
