Yeah we gave up a second round pick in this years draft for him, but look at what he did for our team too!! Yeah Cris Cooley was a steal, he easily out-performed everyone else that was drafted at TE last year and did more than what was really expected out of a rookie.

It may have cost us a 2nd round pick but I would give that up everytime and twice on Sunday for a player of Cooley's caliber!!!

Re: Addressing a real need

I believe in the "best available player, regardless of position" philosophy for the draft....And from what Gibbs has said, I think the Skins feel the same way. Was FS our biggest need last year? I didn't think so, but Taylor was too good to pass up. They have tried to fill any holes through FA or promoting from within. This gives them they advantage in terms of trading to move in a spot to draft a certain player, but if it doesn't work, they aren't limited to having to find a player that plays a specific position. Of course this doesn't always work, but the idea behind it is good.
That said, I don't think WR is our biggest need, but if we ended up with someone like Williams, I wouldn't be upset. I don't really follow college ball, so I mainly go by what I read about them, so it seems like we have a couple decent options, whether it be a WR, CB, DE, or trading down to gain another pick or two.

I did say that the pick wasn't good or even great! Cooley had a good year not a great year. I believe his best year are to come! But a steal NO!!! I Believe that a 2nd pick and a first for the most part should be that good! Look at some of our 2nd round picks Jansen,Smoot and Jacobe not to bad! On the other had first rounders like Gardner have only been so so! Then you look at out middle and late drafts of late not so good if not Bad! So you better make picks like Cooley are you are in real trouble! A steal no! A good pick yes!

Jacobs may end up being good (God, I hope so). Cooley has more catches, yardage, and touchdowns in one year than Jacobs has in two, so the edge goes to Cooley right now.

Any draft pick should be judged on its own merits. Was Desmond Howard a bad pick - YES. Was Jon Jansen a good pick - YES. Does that mean we should trade our first round picks for second round picks every time?

Re: Addressing a real need

I say Cooley was a steal because of the high caliber player that we got from such a high round in the draft.
