I had been part of the crowd for a long time that thought a higher draft pick, as painful as the season is, isn't a bad thing and is a chance for major improvement. However I got to thinking about it recently and I've decided that the most consistently dominant team the past decade (Patriots) never pick in the top ten, and yet they remain dominant. Why? Because they have a VERY good FO. They take picks in the high 20s and make the most out of them. You don't need a top five pick to get a contributor for the next decade, you need a competent staff and GM.
Hurney made all his first rounders home runs.
So I am now officially in the "To hell with draft position, lets win some damn games!" crowd.
