Vernon Butler - Luxury pick gone wrong?

136 posts in this topic

With the KK signing this week, I want to get everyone's thought on whether this solidifies our 2016 1st round draft pick as a mistake or whether he can be beneficial in other areas. When we originally picked him, I questioned the pick originally but came around to it when I realized that KK would more than likely walk after playing out his contract after the 2016 season. Now that that theory is out the window, I'm left to wonder if the pick was a huge waste of our first round selection last year when looking at the holes in other areas of our roster. He seems to be too big to play DE and not big enough to take over for Star. Is his ceiling KK's breather for the next 5 years? If so, there is no choice but to call this pick a bust, regardless of how good he becomes. There is no way his production in that role can fit his draft position. Thoughts?

You generally don't want to draft role players In the first, with that being said no way you can call him a bust

    • I am as big of a Cam fan as there is, but no he's not perfect. BUT, I will say, in his defense, a good deal of his shortcomings are due in part to offensive scheme and design.  You brought up Brady, whose offense is designed around getting the ball out quick and with timing and letting the receivers make plays.  The biggest complaint on this board since Chud left has been the lack of quick hitting, easy completions created by short, quick routes.  And while I see a lot of articles now about how Cam lacks accuracy on short and intermediate routes, and has ranked as the league worst, at least in 2016, he didn't struggle with such issues under Chud.  Our screens were a lot crisper for one and the routes were more varied and creative.  Furthermore, the last two or three seasons' decline in short and intermediate accuracy coincides with having a receiving corps among the leagues worst in getting separation.  Now, we draft two guys that are quick, fast and can get open in a hurry and overhauled the receiving corps with Shepard and Johnson as well.  I think people are going to see the accuracy problem was more due to scheme and personnel than it was Cam.  If healthy, he's going to have a ridiculous year.
