By the time whomever we draft in 2014 in the 4th round is worth anything, we'll be dealing with cap issues with this ridiculously talented defense. And at some point having to pay a QB with real QB money.
I would have done it for a 4th as well, but we don't know if Dorsey offered that when ATL wouldn't take a 5th. If they were firm wanting a #3, then a 4th wouldn't have gotten it done and no way would I have given up a #3 - especially with no # 2 next year.
