- Overdrafting Allen and Stephenson to hope one of them beats out Albert and then moving whoever is left over to guard.
- Picking up another McCluster in the fourth over Ta'amu or Chapman. (If they wanted NT depth, take the freakin' guys who actually were accomplished nose tackles versus a total project in the first.)
It was a massively shitty draft and very questionable decisions on need/personnel were made.
i agree with the spirit of this, if not all the particulars
the draft was weirdly arrogant...we're so strong we can pick projects, switch positions, wait 2-3 years for players to develop....
this draft would have made more sense to me if we were a team with a franchise QB coming off a deep playoff run...for a 7-9 squad with shit and dick at the QB position and no playoff win in decades, it seems complacent
i think we'll see the most immediate contributions from our 5th and 6th round picks
