You make a good point. I'll say this... nobody has gotten better VALUE out of their draft than the Hawks. The Redskins did do well, but they also gave up a lot. In hindsight, it was a good move, because they have a real great building block in their own John Elway, and they also have their Gary Kubiak. They are covered at QB for the next few years for sure (and they could easily flip Cousins for picks in a year or so to get something back since he has looked so good thus far).
But as far as getting the most out of who they got and where... I think the Hawks have dominated. They filled positions they needed to fill, and they did it at the slots they wanted to do it in. They didn't trade up and get Tannehill, so instead they take Irvin, Wagner, Wilson, and Turbin with the picks it would have taken to get Tannehill. So what's a better value? I'd say we win big on that one.
R.I.P. Dad. I miss you. You will never be forgotten
