you don't really "miss out" on diamonds in the rough, not in the same sense as other picks. you don't give a GM poo for passing up on greg hardy.

Wait...um...I thought that was what the Huddlez was for? To prove that the average fan is smarter than the GM. I guess I am still learning this interwebz thingy.

I'm sure the scouts and Gettleman did plenty of research on him, and he was probably taken off the board for whatever reason. I'd wait until he plays actual games, everyone was calling Josh Norman a steal until the regular season started.

Aladdin will never make it as a left tackle in this league. He just doesn't have the frame and relies too much on his magic carpet to have good feet.

I would've rather taken a chance on a tackle with our last pick than select a RB that may not even see the field next season. Or trade for an extra pick at some point and use a late round pick on a tackle. It's not like we have a whole plethora of depth and talent at the tackle position anyway.

Yeah late round rbs will barely contribute, especially if stew is healthy. Also props for using plethora I use that word way too much

We missed out on Josh Gordon. We missed out on Lavon Brazil. We missed out on Vontaz Burfict. We missed out on Alfonzo Dennard. We could do this all day.


The team that actually did draft Gordon (supplemental draft, by the way; not the regular one) is likely to be 'missing out on him' for at least a year and most likely more.

I honestly wouldn't cite that as being a huge mistake.

As to the topic, extremely too early to know anything like that.

Yeah that was kind of my point. Lavon Brazil is in trouble again too.

I listen to the Bills radio show on my way home from work just to get a football fix until the season starts. They open up training camp tomorrow and they were going over what to look for. One thing that came up was that rookie tackle and 7th round pick Seantrel Henderson is going to open camp as the 1st team LT. Granted Henderson was a first round talent and fell due to off the field issues, but it makes me wonder if we missed out on a chance to pick up a real steal at the end of the draft.

 

Side note, Cyrus Kouandjio is opening as their starting RT.. he was another one guys here wanted

 

We did't "miss out" as much as we decided that his possible contribution was out weighed by 3 pot suspensions in college.

i imagine there was probably a discussion on another teams forum a few years ago that maybe they missed out on a diamond in the rough when they saw that someone we scored as a udfa was going to be starting at RT for us. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ok....now read that with a straight face.
