Missing on a QB in the top 10 is not an unforgivable sin.
Alex proves that average out.
THat said it's only true because most are huge booms or huge busts.
All drafts have Manning's and Leaf's.
The entire point is to have a GM and scouting dept. able to tell which is which. The point is to have people that can identify the possibles and the probables.
If you don't not only will that pick bust but most that follow will as well...
Exact thing I was thinking after I read his paper. All these numbers are great but if you just have the right people in place that can spot talent and know the coach can work with them, that's what you need.
It's looking more and more like our coach and GM don't think anyone in this draft is their guy. But Smith was, for now.
