Will Pierre Desir be available at 60?

I have a feeling I know where Gettleman is directing this team

Other guys I could see still being available there when we pick that I want:

Jace Amaro

Jordan Matthews

Allen Robinson

Who do you want next?

So I've been kicking around the idea that the 6th and 7th round is pointless

As in, there is no incentive to waste time going through this dog and pony show process beyond 5 rounds. Like a player that fell out of the draft? Just pursue them after the draft. The talent curve has flatlined by the time the 6th and 7th round gets here, the only thing the announcers are doing by then is recapping the first three rounds and how good the patriots are at trading into the 2nd and getting some asshole OG from Nebrahoma State. Yes, you could argue that we picked Greg Hardy in the 6th but at the same time you can just schedule a contract signing post draft. And hypothetically if there was an 8th round in an alternate universe somewhere Vontaze Burfict would've been picked there. In 1993 several players that ended up being good were drafted in the 8th round and that's the last time they cut it down. Today the 7th round return is nowhere near that. Teams used to build through the draft (in a literal sense, not in the "wanting to sign free agents is a dirty sin against god" sense) a lot more back then. In 1993, 6 pro bowlers were drafted in the 7th. That's twice as many as the 6th and 7th rounds combined from the 2010 draft.

I know the draft is a ratings grab and people are going to watch it until the end no matter what, so more rounds basically = more money for ESPN and the NFL Network, but I lost interest in following it past the fourth round years ago, and in a practical sense, there's no purpose for GMs to be doing this because it's clear that there's no discerning what's actually good in the crap pile at least past the fifth round and they might as well be picking names out of a hat by then.

But why can't we be more like those guys?
