Totally lost me with the last part. The best thing we have been doing over the past couple years is drafting. In just the past two years we have drafted Beason, Stewart, Otah, Godfrey, Rosario, Kalil, Robinson, and Charles Johnson. How many other teams can say they have gotten THAT many solid to very good contributors in two years in the draft? 4-5 starters and 3 rotational guys. Our problem is putting them our team in position to make plays more often, more so on defense.


As of late they have been good but their has been some years, 2005 for example, that have been horrible.

Drafting has gotten better since we got the new scout.

It wasn't horrible in the first place, though (with few exceptions).

As bad as that draft was, and it was terrible, we still managed to get Thomas Davis, Geoff Hangartner, and Adam Seward. We also selected Jovan Haye, but I guess we gave up on that kid too soon. But Don Gregory has been a blessing, thats for sure.

That is one thing you can say about this team no matter who was doing th scouting, they have been great on their 1st round picks.

If anything, I think their FA scouting has been worse than their college scouting. Out of all the FA they have signed since 2002, how many have actually been long term solutions? Delhomme and Kemo are the only two I can think of. Diggs I guess has been okay but I'm more refering to the big name signings.

Though Harris wasn't a free agent we did seek him out and trade for him, I thought that was a great acquisition. Lucas had a few good years here. Damione Lewis is another that has been solid. Tyler Brayton too.

Don Gregory took over as head of college scouting. The last two drafts have been under his watch.
