What exactly is our system at this point? We really have no identity any longer.

He knows football and he knows the backrooms of the NFL. He's got my hopes set high.

He is exactly the kind of guy we needed to get us headed in the right direction.

Thanks mr Scott...who would be your runner up to tavon Austin?
I'd be good with a lot of guys. Kenny Vacarro, Cordarelle Patterson (probably won't be there) Star Lotoulelei (ditto) or - I know others will disagree - Chance Warmack.
Austin is my top choice by far, but I'm pretty confident we'll get a good player.
So scot what is your overall personal first impression of gettleman?
Personable. Direct. Supremely confident (28 years of experience gives him reason to be).
Gettleman strikes me as one of those people who says "I'm gonna do (this)" and then goes out and does (this). That might seem like a given but trust me, it isn't, especially in a high profile world like the NFL.

- Said Jerry Richardson is "involved" in draft planning
Not to nit pick, but that is not what Gettleman said. About 25 1/2 minutes into the presser.
