if we have more than 8 picks.

Just an observation I had when looking at our past 5 drafts. When we've had more than 8 picks, we usually have 4 or more bad picks. However when we had only 7 or 8 picks, we only had 2 or 3 bad picks. By the way, the 2005 draft had 10 picks with 7 of them being bad. Our worst ever. Seven or eight picks is the magic number. Anything more and we struggle.

2006 (8 picks):
McClover
Montgomery
Salley

2007 (8 picks):
Shaw
Robinson
Jarrett

2008 (9 picks):
Bernadeau
Taylor
Hayden
Godfrey

2009 (7 picks):
Robinson
Irvin

2010 (10 picks):
Stanford
Pike
Edwards
Clausen

Here is the dreaded 2005 draft (10 picks):
Berger
Haye
Emanuel
LeFors
Ellison
Mathis
Shelton

I wouldn't call Godfrey a bad pick. An average safety at best, but for a 3rd rd pick to start almost every game, and at a moderately bad to above average level, I'd call that a pretty average pick. And it's way too early to determine the 2010 bad picks...

so if we have 8 picks or less we will have 5 or less players work out, but if we pick 9+ we will have at least 5 players work out?

i'll take my chances with bulk picks.

It's more saying that we should keep about the average amount of picks (7 or 8) and sprinkle in a few good vets instead of overloading on rookie draft picks.

fwiw...i would rather use most of the picks that we can trade after the 3rd round to either trade up in the draft or trade for vet players to fill holes at DT and OG especially.

we have enough youth on the team already.

we very easily could end up with 10 picks this year, though...we'll have several comp picks, including another 3rd for peppers.

Just for perspective... how does that compare with every other team in the league?

If Dwayne Harris is available still around the 4th or 5th round he would be a solid wr pick up for us. After seeing him for 4 years at ECU I'm thoroughly convinced he'll be a player at the next level. Same feeling I had about Chris Johnson.....and that turned out pretty well haha

Seems like we suck at drafting Defensive tackles, safeties, WRs, tight ends, and quarterbacks, but other than that.... good job marty & co
