Mr. Scot

The Draft sucks (I really love it)

Ya know what's great about Draft season? So many great players available that could improve our team :)

Ya know what sucks about Draft season? So many great players available that could improve our team, so how do you choose which ones are the best and then watch opposing teams picking up those other great players that we could have had? :(

And yes, the same can likely be said of Free Agency.

Anyone else ever feel a love/hate relationship with the process?

Plenty of people didnt believe Kuechly was "a sure thing".

(honestly, I was one of them)

I thought that was the common wisdom at the time. Thats what I had been hearing.

I hated the Keek pick when it happened. Thought it was terrible to waste a top 10 pick on a LB playing out of position (at the time I thought Beason would be 100% healthy and manning the middle). Shows what I know :P

I was extremely upset that we spent another high pick on a linebacker. It worked out great, but at the time i was pissed. I've been screaming WR for about 8 years now. When Smitty went down in 04 i knew then we needed back up and we have yet to address it. Now we have even more holes and the little dutch boy is running out of fingers.

So... yes MR Scott i love the draft process and all the trimmings, however i hate feeling like we lost out on something special in the draft.

Two things I can count on every year...

1) feeling overcautious going into the draft (I never like "boom or bust" picks)

2) a bad case of buyer's remorse coming out of it (even if we picked somebody I like)

I think a lot of draftniks have four or five guys they'd absolutely love to get by the time draft day rolls around. What inevitably happens is one of two things.

Either we get one guy you love and then at least one - generally more - of the others go to teams that make you yell "nooooo, not them" :(

That, or we get someone else you may or may not even have thought of, and then you watch all the guys you wanted go to other teams; almost guaranteed that at least one will go to a team you hate :angry:

Being a draftnik is a form of masochism, I think :lol:

Keek defender from the start. Toot, toot.

Also high on one of the guards this draft, preferably Warmack in the 1st. The idea of a WR in the 1st I love, but it scares me. Give me the most sure thing, 10 year starter, and perennial All-Pro type guy in the 1st.

My annoyance is when someone rises right out of your draft range - like Fisher. Of course, this could all be rendered moot if Lane Johnson continues to rise and be worth 11.
