Just thought I'd pass it along:
"A few minor tidbits that may interest some...
final big board rankings through our first pick:
I didn't know how the Hawks rankings on Okung vs Williams until very very recently. Okung has a lower ceiling but higher floor then Williams. Trade value was down this year for moving down, teams were unwilling to deal future ones. Concern was Dallas may trade with San Fran for Earl Thomas, whom the Hawks zeroed in on in the past few days. That didn't happen but there was major concern when Philly moved there apparently, followed by relief when Thomas wasn't the pick. Morgan would have been the pick if Thomas was gone, not a shocker, but Thomas was decidedly the higher ranked prospect. Though everyone says Gibbs makes good OL out of mid level talent, a major selling point on getting him here is the org would use a high pick on a LT if the board fell that way without a reach happening. Though he really wanted Williams, apparently he is fine with Okung. (I haven't had a detailed conversation yet involving Okung.) PC was never going to be blinded by USC products like some suspected. Just the opposite, he knows all their flaws and limitations. I didn't post all this info, some I just messaged to someone here I trusted, but it was pretty accurate now that round one is complete."
