    So does this mean the Skins definitely go OT at the fourth pick? You have to think so, right?

    That's what I'd do, but I don't own the team.

    I don't know about going OT with the 4th pick. If i can't get Bradford then I would strongly consider trade down (especially with King Kung getting hurt. Thats just me....Nevertheless, CS will sadly be missed. The worst thing is that with all of that sacrifice for so many years, he never got a ring or came close to one.

    I think before him retiring...it was a need because MAYBE if he came back. We'd still go on the idea he wouldn't make it all season.

    Now I think unless one of the monster DT's fall to us....you got OL. I don't think any QB in the top 10 is that much of a franchise QB over a guy you could take in the 2nd round.

    Well, this changes things, at least I hope. Now instead of being so ga ga over a QB, we're gonna have to get a replacement for Samuals. Someone that can come in and start. That's gonna be a relatively high pick.

    BTW, thanks Chris for all the punishment you took over the years. Too bad we couldn't get you a ring

    Many thanks to Samuels and what he has meant to this team. I will now consider buying one of his jerseys.

    This does, IMO, change things regarding the draft. We almost need to get an OT in draft.

    With the draft another 7 weeks away things can still change dramatically. Guess if we sign couple OL then we may go another direction in draft. With so many restricted FA's you also have a chance of losing or gaining picks.

    This is going to be in interesting few weeks.
