While that's true, a few spots is crucial at the top of the draft, when we are trying to get a top-tier OT. Teams like Arizona, Miami and philly would be picking ahead of us if we win (not 100% sure if Miami would), and they all need an OT as much as us (depending if Jake Long is released or not). So three picks can potentially be the difference between Joeckel or Lewan and Fisher or Matthews.

We would of been 13, but Buccs and Panthers both winning bumped us up 2 spots, so now we pick 11, which is pretty damn good.
