What if, instead of drafting rookies, we used all eight of our picks to trade for established players?
#5 (1st) - Ben Roethlisberger (Steelers, QB)
#36 (2nd) - Osi Umenyiora (Giants, DE/OLB)
#50 (2nd) - Jared Gaither (Ravens, LT)
#68 (3rd) - Donte Whitner (Bills, FS)
#102 (4th) - Deion Branch (Seahawks, WR)
#136 (5th) - Alan Faneca (OG, Jets)
#142 (5th) - Justin Smiley (OG, Dolphins)
#144 (5th) - Bobby Carpenter (Cowboys, ILB)
I say we do this!
Just for the record, Faneca is probably in the bottom 25% of starting OGs at this stage of his career, and is most likely going to be released before the season.
Interesting idea though. I don't want Rapelisberger, but I'd love to have Umenyiora, Gaither, and Whitner.
No to Ben QB is one of the least needs on this team. We dont need him and I dont want him.
That would be NFL history and I would rather have rookies from this draft. There is a ton of talent here
