I just don't like trading future 1st round picks, one could argue thats how the Panthers got where they are now:
They then traded their 2010 first round pick for a second round pick in 2009, used to draft DE Everette Brown, which then may have lead them to trade what turned out to be 33rd pick in 2011 for QB turned WR Armatti Edwards (the 89th pick in 2010).
The Saints could have selected either Ryan Williams or Mikel Leshoure, RB Illinois in the second round (even if they had to give up a 3rd or 4th rounder to trade up) instead of giving up their #59 just in order to use their 2012 first round pick in 2011. I see the Emmit Smith comparisons with Mark Ingram, I think he is special in a way that is beyond 40 times, and bench press.
The Falcons needed a #2 WR, with the potential to be a #1, or at least a very good slot/3rd WR. Instead they got the 3rd or 4th best WR prospect to come out in the last 5 yrs. I really rate him equal to AJ Green and both are right up there with Calvin Johnson.
I love both Julio Jones and Mark Ingram, but think both teams gave up too much. It is almost like using a credit card with 100% interest rate!!
Fortunately, I also think Cam Newton will be exciting to watch, but ultimately not a good NFL QB.
The Bucs needed a DE, and got one, after getting two DTs with their 1st and 2nd round picks in 2010. But I really don't think Clayborn is a very good pass rusher, more of a run-stuffing DE.
