####, Rick let Zimmer talk him into a CB which isnt close to the BPA or what we needed. Hate the pick. Basically giving up on Alexander. Damnit Rick

I thought they were letting go of Terrance Newman, because he’s a dinosaur.

Not sure yet. This might reflect that they're moving on or he told them he's retiring. The door was still open on one more season before the draft from what I read.

They guys on FOX said 15th overall on the board, but he is way too frigging small for that. I doubt we see him play for 2 years. I havent hated a pick so much in ages.

I hate this pick. Hernandez was sitting right there and instead they took another CB, another player with off the field issues who needs experience too.

Sigh...

@AaronWilson_NFL Central Florida CB Mike Hughes. He was supposed to go higher, but off-field concerns from his days at North Carolina hurt his stock a bit

How is his pass protection and run blocking? I'm sorry but this #### is bananas. I'm pissed.
