I call bullsh!t...NO franchise is THAT stupid....this is pure pre-draft posturing
We'll see. When you're 2-14, you need a LOT of help, so it wouldn't surprise me if they signed a veteran stopgap, say Jon Kitna or Kerry Collins, and traded this pick to fill need.
However, IMO, if they walk away from this draft without Mallett or Luck, they're going to be a bad franchise again next year. Mallett's a special player too, at least from what I've seen of him in a Hogs uni.
