And Marty had that same approach. Every GM does. The prideful "I know something you don't because I'm me" mentality. In the end theres something to be said for the general consensus. There's a reason higher rates players are rated higher.


The difference is Gettleman is a football guy. Marty wasn't.

I think the point everyone is missing is this : is there any reason for gettleman to think this dude wouldn't be available later, like, WAY later

dumb as hell pick that could have been spent on someone that was actually 4th round talent

Hmm, no need to high jack the forum with a back and forth rumble. You don't know squat.

at first I was a little sore, guy I never heard of + Patton was still on the board.

The more I read about this guy the more I like him. A lot of GMs started liking this guys movement, power and reach. And in the 4th where you can go almost any which way this isn't a bad pick. I like it more and more.

Also Eric Reid can't cover to save his fuging life. He's literally Chris Harris, iffy cover guy and lives on being a "hard hitter." We have that in Godfrey.


Reid was destroyed in coverage last season yet the Huddle thinks he's a stud.

How does the success rate stack up against executives who out think themselves?



Considering we have no idea on Gettleman and his ability to find players because this is his first draft your conclusion may me premature.

I didn't know much of the of Kugbila, but I have read a few reports on him and everything sounds promising. If he is someone the scouts and coaches think can play and start it doesnt matter where you pick them. If they felt he would be there later then I am sure they would have waited.... It only takes 1 team to like you to set where you go (EJ Manuel)

Eric Reid is a nice player, great in run support but did struggle last yr in pass coverage. I really liked him and had him as my top saftey, but he needs to be paired with a very good FS to help with deep ball assignments. Jut because he was a 5star out of high school means nothing at this point

Ya I don't know who the heck this guy is. Is he even the biggest guy still available? My thoughts about Gettleman are getting more negative as we go on with this draft. Let's keep going let's see what we get in round 5. Please for god sakes get a skill guy, some one we can get excited about atleast. I would even take Kenjon Barner.

He's apparently sensitive on the topic. I wrote my post as a joke and offered to help. His reply was. . .interesting (by the way, Zod, I know how to get around your silly censor too.)

Rather than insulting people who do this stuff for a living, maybe take them up on their offer to contribute. I'm not insulting the dude, just pointing out that that with some tweaks we could keep this site up nonstop.

Well he does put a lot of his own time, energy, and money into this place. Most people probably don't care about that. I took your comment as a joke as well but I can definitely see how it would be a little insulting to the guy.

But it wasn't wise for San Fran to take him in the first :rolleyes:


Alot of people had a first round grade on reid. Above cyprien. Hes's faster and a bigger hitter.
