Interesting, Howie Roseman revealed today that the trade-up for Fletcher Cox last year was completed a day before the draft.
Until now, I've always considered Luke Kuechly to be a strong consideration at #12 if he was there and that they decided to trade down when he went to Carolina instead, but after hearing this bit of news I think Bruce Irvin was the #1 choice all along. Of course it's possible our front office knew Kuechly was not lasting till 12, but I'm leaning towards John and Pete having a great draft understanding/planning and having Bruce #1 and MLB in the 2nd round almost exclusively.
Anyways, I thought I'd share.
