You don't PLAN for the 2nd round and hope that he's still there. The Eagles or jags or raiders may all take QB's... what do you do then? YOU DONT HAVE A CHOICE. If we could map out the draft and say.. Joeckel #1 and Wilson in the 2nd... I think people could get on board... But this isn't Madden where you just restart the system until you get the guys you want to fall to you.
You are right. The question is how big are Geno and Wilson's flaws? That's the difference between us draft geeks and the real scouts. Dorsey and Reid will have a good idea of where they should go and then allow for a rise in stock because of position. It's not as big of a gamble as you think imo.
