Got your attention now? Good! I could very much live with Claibourne as the 3rd overall pick (no Blackmon, he isn't even in the picture imo and this is my post... SOOOO THERE). A month ago if you would have asked me who should we pick, I would have said Claibourne is the pick to make. Join me after the jump to see why my thoughts have changed.
I started looking at it from a team point of view and it really just started making sense that Kalil is better for the team, especially our team in rebuilding with a 2nd year QB who got DESTROYED last year due to poor O-Line play. Think about it this way, what would have a crappy secondary hurt this year? Only thing it hurts is our scoreboard, which I am sure during the season I will be pissed about but in the long hall it isn't as bad as the negatives that could occur from having a terrible O-Line again. That would be devastating to our hopeful QB of the future and to our rebuilding as a whole.
With that said look at Free Agency, look how often good receiver or DB talent comes on the market as apposed to a Franchise LT. With all this in mind I really think Kalil is the way to go tomorrow with the 3rd overall pick. My favorite scenarios would be as follows:
1. Some kind of crazy trade where we get a TON of picks!
