Draft Question

I assume Gettle has the power come draft time but I wonder how much pull Rivera will have. Reason I bring it up is I have seen a lot who say DT is a slow position to develop. If that's so I wouldn't think Rivera would want to draft one since he needs production next season

I'm pretty certain Gettleman will have the final word. He'll likely get input from the scouting staff, they'll rank prospects, then work with Rivera and the position coaches to evaluate fits. Ultimately though, it's going to be Gettleman's call.

Gettleman is not on any hot seat and is building his team. He will be building for the long run. Thank God.

I actually like this duo of Gettleman and Rivera. I think they both know talent pretty damn well. And know what we need to be successful. This past draft was one of the best. And i think Rivera had a lot to do with that.

This is Gettleman's team of the future. Its Rivera for one year to boom or bust.

Gettleman will be drafting his players for the future and what he sees as needs. Rivera will have to play with Gettleman's cards. Rivera has no say in this Draft and beyond.

Rivera is not worried about being fired after 2013, no coach ever is. He believes his team is going to get to the playoffs and be successful. That is the mindset that every coach has to have in order to get the players to buy into his system. So he is going to help find the best players he can assuming he is going to be here long term. He will be an integral part of this draft and the next. Once we have back to back winning seasons and he gets an extension he will be here for a while.

I want to believe the same thing, but it aint.

Everyone knows Gettleman is going to draft who he wants for the future. Gettleman's job is safe for the next 4 years. Rivera's job is on the line. Sure Rivera will have input on who to take, but 99% of the decision is Gettleman's.

Gettleman knows talent but Rivera knows what he wants to do with the team and the type of players he needs to run his system. They will work together to figure out who they want. Gettleman will get the final word I suspect but he is too smart to operate in a vacuum and not get plenty of input from his coach and the scouting pros.

No one really even know if Rivera is Gettleman's long term answer. Yes, he looked like he liked Rivera at his press conference. And yes, Im sure JR wanted a GM that wanted to stick with Rivera, but I guarantee that Gettleman is giving 1 year to prove hes the answer. If he start the season like how he did the past two seasons, Gettleman isnt going to hesitate pulling the trigger on him.

Rivera will get some say on who to draft but Gettleman will make the final say on all the players in the upcoming draft.

Rivera is finishing his contract unless there is a hc staff that can't be looked over.
