Everyone loves their picks in the immediate aftermath of the NFL Draft.
A pair of moves Tuesday afternoon, just two days before this year’s fun at Radio City Music Hall, help to remind us not to get overly excited about rookie impacts.
The Rams wanted to get rid of 2007 No. 13 overall pick Adam Carriker so much that they traded him for the honor of moving up 28 spots in the fifth-round of the draft.
The Jets so desperately wanted to avoid playing the No. 6 overall pick of the 2008 draft — Vernon Gholston — that they chose to overpay Jason Taylor.
The moves are a good reminder that draft picks are often like new cars. Most go down in value the moment you buy them.
