In Topic: Looks like we landed at least 4 starting caliber players from the 2014 draft...

Benjamin and Bene look like talented contributors, but I haven't seen enough consistent play from Norwell and Turner to call them long term starters. As people have said, we have more undrafted players getting playing time because of all the talent that left due to retirement and free agency this season.

To be fair, Alfred Morris was a pretty good pick. Roy Helu and Jordan Reed aren't so bad either.

Trading the farm for RG3 though...

Right, and Hurney had his Hardy, Munnerlyn, Hangartner, etc. Average to above average drafter that makes stupid trades. I think that's how I'd peg those two. Don't forget that Shanahan was also GM in Denver (I believe that Sunquist was mostly just a cap guy with an honorific title) for some pretty bad drafts, if I remember correctly.

I believe that is called "the Marty Hurney" good first rounds with dumb trades and not a ton else to speak of.

Nope, coach shanahan was constantly screwed over by GM Shanahan. I want him no where near our front office. Kill it, kill the Orange thing with fire.

I admit you can reasonably say the cap space is wasted this year. It is easy to say that from a perspective of hindsight.

But the move was not really about this year. It was about the next several years and eliminating future cap obligations.

Obviously it is through hindsite. Nobody knew what was going to happen, but that doesn't change the fact that it is wasted.
