So I preferred Thornhill as my #1 safety but won't argue at all with Savage if the Pack brass felt he was the better fit.    Love they threw some resources at a screaming weakness at safety.

Expect we may trade down from #44 tomorrow to recapture additional picks


Thinking that is has a fair likelihood.

Final four teams last year were #1, 2, 3 and 4 in scoring offenses - much lower in defensive scoring (with the exception of NE)-- would love to finally see some high resources put towards that side of the ball

Trade up for DK Metcalf. Make it happen Gutey.

Savage has sideline to sideline range.  Good pick.  I wouldn't expect anything early,but he'll be a very good player down the road.  Probably some growing pains and hard lessons coming as a rookie but this kid will have impact on this secondary and defense.  nice pick

Looking at guys like Josh Gordon, Alshon Jeffrey, Megatron, Demaryius Thomas --- Metcalf has actually grown on me.   Lots of players I prefer more but I wouldn't argue with him.   

Also, he's fast so Al "Gutey" Davis probably approves

Sweat, Taylor big drops so far.    Biggest losers of the draft so far?

I like the player a lot but didn't like the trade up too much.

Rashan Gary's right leg is bigger/heavier than Marquise Brown

Good comments... The value of the trade was fair, though.

Colts just traded out of 26 and Prisco is reporting that Savage was their guy.

They must've really loved Savage to spend three picks in him because this is a deep Safety draft.

Speed to burn but short ish.

According to the trade value chart we should have given up both 4ths, our 5th and our 1st 6th rounder if not both to even out value.   We did well in that trade by that measure.

Most probably would have preferred a trade down but value was good and ultimately I think Savage becomes a fan favorite.

Wow, hell of a 1st round for the Redskins.
