During a pre-Combine conference call on Friday, Jeremiah insisted that as of now mo matter what happened with the first three picks he would still sit right there at No. 4 and take Becton. “Well, they’ve got a lot of holes. You pick up there for a reason. And I get what you’re saying about finding some playmakers on...
