Interesting tidbit that came down this evening via Jason Lacanfora's twitter:
@JasonLaCanfora: Interesting note on Bruce Irvin, the 1st 1st rounder to sign. Jets and Steelers had a draft-deal essentially done for NY to drop back ...
@JasonLaCanfora: Jets were gonna take Irvin or Coples in the mid-20s, and Steelers would take DeCastro at 16. Once Seattle took Irvin at 15, Jets pulled out
@JasonLaCanfora: Steelers still got their man, DeCastro, in their original spot. Will be interesting to see how careers of Irvin and Coples pan out.
Colbert said after the pick that he was one of the guys they were willing to trade up for if the right offer came down, but fortunately they didn't have to, which probably would have made them give up their 2nd round pick, or 3rd at the worst.
