I remember the rumor floating around the draft about the Oilers being interested in Reinhart at #1. That was obviously BS, but Reinhart would have been a perfect fit for you guys too. Seriously, how difficult would have it been for them to scout him?
Ya, there was definitely a lot of chatter in these parts, so I think there was some truth to the fact we REALLY liked Griffin.
I doubt he was considered at #1 like you said, but it's tough to say whether they ever entertained trading down or adding a pick, or how serious it ever got.
The good thing is we won't have to deal with him when he becomes a beast defensively for more than 2x a year, thank goodness!
