Draft Philosophy

If you're one of those people who believes games are won and lost in the tranches and you build the foundations (OL / DL ) to win, then you should be pretty happy.

If you're a skill position guy, then not so much.

You could argue both lines had one hole.

We drafted good players at those spots and drafted a successo for an aging vet.

I'm good with it :)

Like Gman said


The big guys allow you to play.

You can't run a proper offense if Cam is staring at the sky or RB's are hit as soon as they touch the ball. Same with the D, does not matter how fast the LB's are if they have a 330 lb G attached to their chest.

I am good with it too. I was joking a little about it seeming like a Hurney draft just because he took the D2 lineman and a running back but I couldn't be happier with the first two picks and I understand the others. We will see if he is right about our secondary and then maybe next year he could build the offensive line from the draft

Last Two Picks: insurance for the future

Kugbila is coming in to play. Think about some of the guys we started on our line last year...He has more talent than most of them. Kalil was out, Bell missed a couple, and Hangartner missed some games. Just go back and look at some of our games. We played a ton of players last year that don't belong in the NFL. We kept a pretty healthy set of skill players on offense.

Love this philosophy and I'm excited to see the moves Gettleman makes post draft. I don't think he's done making moves yet.

So your basically asking who knows football and who does not.
