The trouble with highlight films is that they only show the good, not the times when the guy drops the ball, misses his block, or spends half a game texting his girlfriend because the play is on the other side of the field.
Golden rule of drafting: Watch the lowlight film - you'll probably learn more
I couldnt disagree more.
Outside of obvious character concerns, the film tells it all.
Every great player has highlights, thats what they are supposed to do.
I don't want to give up a defensive player. I don't want to give up a possible defensive starter with our 2rd round pick and we might not even have a 2nd rounder next year, so please stop with this Shockey talk. We already traded for one stud from New York and it was on the correct side of the ball.
Brees has no problem finding targets, so big deal we don't have a Gates or Shockey. We should try to steal a TE in the 3rd or beyond.
Even Mort on ESPN said this was a one time conversation.
