I wouldn't really call the 7th a pick it's more like 2 picks. The 7th is the 3rd to last pick in the draft so basically the guy they draft there probably won't make the roster and he would probably be someone they could sign undrafted anyways.

Marv Levy spoke about that very thing yesterday. He was very happy with the 7th and said that guarantees you a player which you would want to sign as a UDFA. Plus, we very rarely cut players that we draft. All of our players usually make our team.

Ghetto, we have actually had very good success recently with UDFA. A good number have made the roster and some have made huge contributions (Jason Peters). Keith Ellison came up huge last year too as well as Terrance Pennington. They were 6th and 7th rounders (I think) and started a good portion of the games. The Bills do well late in the draft.

In all honesty, homerism aside, I would rather have 3 picks (2 thirds and a seventh) rather than just one (high 2nd).

Sure, you could land a great "prospect" with the pick that the Bears acquire, but the draft is a huge crapshoot. 3 players are better than 1. That's just how I look at it.

I'm sure 32 teams wish you were a GM of another team if you'd take what you got over what the Bears.


I'm not trying to "piss you off." But every GM looks at the trade value chart. And the chart values what the Bears got for Jones over what the Bills got for McGahee. And I'll take a high 2nd rounder over a late 3rd tthis year, a 3rd next year, and a late 7th this year. Two quarters and a nickel don't a dollar make.
