Ok it's 2011 draft day and you're sitting at pick 27 son. Hindsight being 20/20 who do you pick son? Do you pull off the trade and go up for Julio or someone else? Do you sit at 27 and go a completely different direction? What would YOU do son?

To keep it simpler no other trades unless it's the Cleveland deal.

It was stated after the 2011 draft, that had the Falcons not traded and stayed at #27, they would have selected Gabe Carimi. It was ironic that the Falcons signed the underachieving Carimi last year, had one year's look at him, and then decided not to re-sign him this year. I think that 1 Julio is greater than 100 Carimis.

You didn't play fair. You're supposed to say what you would have done if you were the one picking. I think this train went off the track before it left the station.

I would never trade 5 picks for any player but at the same time I'm glad we got Julio. Why are we bringing this up again anyway?

Offseason, lack of sleep, Julio coming up for an extension, the let Julio walk insanity, etc. I'm genuinely curious what others would have done as the GM at that moment.

well, son. I would have picked julio, son. Looking at who Cleveland took with our picks, son, it proves that just because you had our picks, son, doesn't mean you were guaranteed to pick a winner, son.

son.

Son, when you're right you're right and your right son.

As I understand it, Gabe Carimi isn't an "underachiever" so much as a victim of BountyGate. Wasn't he one of the players listed as a target that one of the Ain'ts collected a bounty on?

Since we're playing "alternate universe", if we had taken Carimi, the Saints' bounty target would probably have been on Matt instead. So in this branch of time, Carimi does not necessarily get his knee targeted, and might become a perennial All Pro.

If I went back in time and wormed my way into the draft room, I would draft 7 amazing, probably 1'st round talent players in that draft, same as anyone could do in any draft.

If I had to go back in time without knowledge of how players turned out though, I'd trade up for JJ again.

You could still trade for JJ and still have a monster draft man.

3rd - KJ Wright LB

5th - Richard Sherman CB/FS

6th - Matt Bosher P

7th - Cedric Thornton DE/DT

7th - Chris Harris CB

That is very true. You know you're right, forget not trading, get JJ regardless, the extra insight would make up for the picks lost and then some.

That's scary, I didn't even think of that. I suppose if that's possible Baker could be an all pro as well. We gotta draw the line somewhere. I'm just not willing to make Biermann an all pro just yet.
