In 2005 you did not like the Davis pick and would have preffered a QB,LT,CB,DE. Well Fox never ever wanted anything to do with a rookie a QB. If he did maybe we could have had Aaron Rodgers. We also were set at DT with Buckner and Jenkins. In 06 we replaced Buckner with Kemo.
The years you mentioned we had Gross at LT.
We also had Ken Lucas and Chris Gamble at corner.
We had Julius Peppers and either rucker or Charles Johnson at DE.
Aside from 2008 we had Jenkins
So that leaves a DT over Stewart in 08. Stewart went 13th overall. A DT did not come off the board until pick 29 and it was Kentwan Balmer. I'll take Stewart thanks.
And just to be thorough the next DT was Trevor Laws at 47. No where near the first round did any DT come off the board that year.
See what I mean by looking at things objectively now?
Yes I do, and I still disagree with the picks. You don't look at the next year when you are the GM, the next year should be taken care of already because you don't want to play rooks at big time positions.
You have to look at the next 5 years and stick to your plan. Hurney was not doing this.
Again, I take the BPA, unless it's a damn running back.
I wouldn't have taken Trent Richardson this year even though he was BPA.
I just think that the NFL had devalued the position so much that it's dumb to take them high.
Same can be said for 43 LB's.
