Thoughts on Bombers trade with the Als, I like it.

We needed depth behind Thomas as the first priority so it makes sense to get someone who is a little further along. Basically give up the 9th for him and Walters gets a bit of a sweetener by moving up in the second round. It makes sense logically as long as the player can provide decent depth.

If Lawson is ready to play and wants to come here, then this is a slam dunk.  Drop 4 picks down, and land a much needed NAT inside DL...

8 of 27 players selected were Australian Punters... including 2 (two) by the WBB...

I'm not sure what to think of this... I know people are questioning our kicking game... but drafting 2 punters?  I guess there are no kickers in the NAT draft...

Just checking the mock draft... one kicker, David Solie, projected taken in the 8th round... yeah, guessing the pickings are slim...

The funny thing is, punters are like the least likely position to be injured... so the only reason to have a GLOB punter is if you want him to replace your starter to save a NAT or DI slot.  That would be advantageous.

What does this spell for Leggs?  Certainly lighting a fire under his butt...

Wonder if we misread the draft,  not sure we trade away our pick if we thought deonte Knight, and or Zerr would be available

He's supposed to be a very good player. I would have thought a receiver would have been a higher necessity after the better DL and OL selections were taken.


Two hour broadcast and they only get to # 14 - # 15?

agreed far to much yapping not enough picking.

Ford seems intriguing. When we pick next?
