  1. The Titans didn’t win that trade for DGB.

    They drafted DGB in the 2nd round (way too high given the troubles DGB got into in college).

    The Eagles drafted Kelly in the 5th (about right).

    By taking Kelly for DGB, the Titans basically drafted a 5th rounder in the 2nd.


  2. Sure they did. DGB was picked by the previous staff. After the new regime took over, they saw he wasn’t worth keeping, and got a decent backup linemen for him instead of just cutting him. Which the Eagles just did. It wasn’t a huge blockbuster deal or anything, but the Titans definitely won that one.

  3. flipola, my point was that *nobody* won the trade, not that the Eagles did.

    If you think Dennis Kelly would’ve been a great 2d round pick, then sure, the Titans “won” the trade.

    The thing you’re forgetting is that by identifying a need to dump a 2d round pick, the Titans were already working from a huge deficit. That was certainly not the case for the Eagles, on the other hand, who had sufficient o-line depth without Kelly and are none the worse for having gotten rid of Kelly to take a chance on DGB.

  4. After the draft is over, rounds don’t matter, it’s about play on the field. DGB couldn’t run routes, he couldn’t do part of the game he was drafted for. So even though he was a 2nd rounder, he was of no use to them.
