    Ted picked up the choice he lost by moving up. GB moved down 9 picks from 128 to 137 and picked up an early 7th (217).

    I hope Steve Slaton is on his list.

    3 picks away from our last 4th round pick. We have to go OT here, right?

    WTF are they doing trading picks within their division?

    EDIT: I could be wrong but I swear they traded to the Vikings - unless it was a 3-way trade.

    EDIT EDIT: Who the heck knows - maybe Det picked really quick :-? Anyhow Vikings took Booty...

    GB traded down 12 spots in the 5th and picked up the 2nd pick in the 7th. Solid value. We now have 4 more picks (1 5th, 3 7ths).

    We traded with a division rival, of ALL teams, and allowed them to get one of the better QBs in this draft. I've been happy with this draft for the most part, but just a DUMB DUMB move in my mind.

    Overall I would agree. Good draft but that was a bad move.

    Maybe Ted figured they would pick up the Booty and does not fear playing against him. Or heck, maybe he WANTS to play against him.

    Maybe TT and his genius mind knows that John David Booty is not gonna pan out.

    Hah, yeah. There's a plan for anything - Especially when your name is Ted Thompson!

    I still don't know about the whole trade with the Vikes. Booty better suck. I don't think you trade within the division.

    Ted traded away our last 7th for a future pick. Setting up another 9-10 pick year in 09.

    Thanks for all the updates Arles. They helped me sort things out all day. Your efforts reflect in the videos in the video section. Thanks.

    Ted traded the 7th rounder to the Saints for their 6th rounder next year.

    Also, rumor has it that Ted traded them a nice big shiny nickel for a crummy little dime.

    whew !!! its been a long 2 days. just wonder if maybe the pick of flynn is more then just another q.b. ? wonder if maybe he might be able to play another position maybe like safety ? i dont know but i do know he sure can run. he hurt us in the s.e.c championship
