This really sucks, for the kid and for us.

He was my CB choice.

Maybe he'll be there for us in a later round if the injury isn't too bad.

Eagles need CBs who can contribute this year.

Sympathies to the kid but being selfish this is a problem for us if it removes a first round talent because it means that there will be one less for us at #14 and an increased risk that a team may trade up ahead of us for a CB.

Depending on the medical reports I'd take the risk in a later round even knowing he won't contribute in 2017. Imagine having #14 and Jones as our starting CBs in 2018 onwards!

My point exactly. This year isn't THE year anyway.

Au contraire, every year is THE year in the NFL.

It's not baseball or basketball where it takes forever.
