Default St louis Rams trade Tye hill to Falcons

just thought i would mention this in the main thread if people didn't already know

The St. Louis Rams cut ties to their top two picks from the 2006 draft on Tuesday, trading cornerback Tye Hill to the Atlanta Falcons for an undisclosed draft pick and releasing tight end Joe Klopfenstein.

Hill was decent, wasn't he? A 7th rounder is a bargain...

No risk trade essentially as we are stacked for mid round picks, if we can get him healthy for a long period of time he should hopefully turn into something decent..also the falcons could probably boast the fastest CB tandem with Houston and Hill both running sub 4.35 - not that that means anything in a Cover 2

Another case of a player being drafted as a result of a 40 time costing a franchise dearly

He could be a decent player and at the worst Atlanta gain a guy who is fast enough to chase down a play

Tye Hill is way to small with no hands and poor tackling ability to get a 7th round pick is kinda high

boy did he get burned a lot
