Maybe, but I wouldn't have thought that they had the guts to take him at 7, either... But hey, they said he was 3rd on their list after Taylor and Tyler, so who knows? We probably would've taken Gudbranson, though. I'm glad it didn't happen either, I'm entirely pleased with last year's draft, but had I not known who we'd pick and who he'd turn out to be, I'd be pissed if I knew that NJ'd do the same thing next year.
