Draft Day Special Coverage 14

So Portland has purchased yet another late first round pick.  Only this time they had to give up a second round pick, and it may have backfired.

Koponen at 30 is a project.  And Byars at 43 is a steal.  In fact, Byars was rated higher than Koponen on most draft boards.  So they gave up cash to get a guy who may not be as good as the guy they picked.
