Draft Philosophy

If you're one of those people who believes games are won and lost in the tranches and you build the foundations (OL / DL ) to win, then you should be pretty happy.

If you're a skill position guy, then not so much.

You could argue both lines had one hole.

We drafted good players at those spots and drafted a successo for an aging vet.

I'm good with it :)

Like Gman said


The big guys allow you to play.

You can't run a proper offense if Cam is staring at the sky or RB's are hit as soon as they touch the ball. Same with the D, does not matter how fast the LB's are if they have a 330 lb G attached to their chest.

I am good with it too. I was joking a little about it seeming like a Hurney draft just because he took the D2 lineman and a running back but I couldn't be happier with the first two picks and I understand the others. We will see if he is right about our secondary and then maybe next year he could build the offensive line from the draft

Kugbila is coming in to play. Think about some of the guys we started on our line last year...He has more talent than most of them. Kalil was out, Bell missed a couple, and Hangartner missed some games. Just go back and look at some of our games. We played a ton of players last year that don't belong in the NFL. We kept a pretty healthy set of skill players on offense.

Love this philosophy and I'm excited to see the moves Gettleman makes post draft. I don't think he's done making moves yet.

So your basically asking who knows football and who does not.

I think the nice thing is there is a transparent philosophy.

Gettleman is going all in on his Hog-Molly and he is honest about it. I'm buying in.

Unless we start losing again then I will bitch.

See I'm transparent too.

All those leads that we lost in the 4th qtr last year should soon go away with the DLine having competent fresh legs. This alone should be worth 3-4 wins

I completely agree. But at the same time our opponents are going to be feeling even more heat than Cam lol.

Gettleman did patch together a really strong oline for the Giants out of vets playing for peanuts. We aren't done in FA - somebody that can contribute will come to this team.

Ill post this quote from Gettleman again:

@Panthers: Gettleman: "Our next goal is to have a 90-man roster where every guy deserves to be in a training camp. We may not get to that until July."

Good. I'm a firm believer that competition brings out the best in humans. Sick of the guys on our team who coast through the motions for a paycheck.

I'd be ok with it if they could consistently get the bullshit calls old man tony G gets, but they dont.

I wouldn't frame it that way.

People have different ideas about team building, and certainly there's more than one way to bring together a successful squad.

But what I would say is that people like me who believe in building from the lines out, there's more reason to be optimistic right now.

I do, and I am happy

I am very happy with all of our picks, and that we got two DTs with our first two. I honestly like everything the front office and our staff has done: FA, the draft, the undrafted signings, and the plan for training camp. Considering our cap limitations and having only five picks, Mr. Gettleman and our brass have done very well.

Case for DL
-The quicker the DL gets to the QB, the less time the DBs have to cover receivers.

Case for OL
-The more time the QB has in the pocket, the longer the WRs have to get open.
