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

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.

    • No doubt, He had an amazing game against a pretty crappy O-Line.  Give him his props for that.  I would have loved to see him get MVP.   Have you ever heard of Timmy Smith?  Super Bowl MVP running back for the Washington Redskins.   He played the game of his life in the game of his life.  And was out of football a year or two later.  Ealy, rookie year all performance was a rookie expectations.  2nd year expect some improvement and outside the Super Bowl he was consistently inconsistent.  3rd year proof in the making he had hit his ceiling.  "The roof is the ceiling" or "the ceiling is the roof" or something like that. Sporadic player at best.   I am not in belief that Billicheat is some great guru that turns mortals into gods.  He'll be about the same as he was with us.   Mediocre at best with one or two games to think he is about to breakout.
    • Put up or shut up Zimmerman boy
    • McCaffery is significantly quicker in the other agility drills plus edges him out in vertical and broad jumps. He's more explosive and been more productive. The analysis on NFL prospect page says Samuel is stiff and that is made evident by not being as quick in the drills that matter.
