Definitely a different approach than the last few years for Gettleman.
Felt a bit like a Marty Hurney draft. Using our picks to move up several positions.
To Gettleman's credit the picks given up were later ones from this year as opposed to early picks from the future.
Due to the limited talent available, it seems to make perfect sense.
Plus, with the success of the last few drafts, the team now has less holes to fill and more depth than they've had in several years, if ever. The later picks likely stood little chance of making the team under those circumstances.
Still, Gettleman seemed to go against conventional wisdom with some of his picks and may have reached for a few of these players.
Time will tell, but his strategy based on the limited talent seems sound.
