Tillman is here for 1, at most 2 years. Why would Boston give it up?

Can Shaq be there, U. of Wash is on the quarter system


I remember them saying that he would miss OTAs, but that he would be at the rookie camp. Not trying to find a link, but I recall one of the talk shows in Charlotte saying so on Friday.

Every now and then, a draft board doesn't fall the way you want, and you have to either accept it or try to do doe thing about it. I disagree with Hardin's assessment. I wouldn't have moved up from 25. The board fell to poo, the Collins incident didn't help, and the kinds of players we needed started falling off at 20, with Agholor. Gettleman took a guy that had as many question marks as any other player that we could have drafted and Thompson will fit a need beyond 2015, yet still be able to contribute in 2015.

In round 2, DG saw the same thing happening in players starting to come off. Rather than sit passively, he sacked up and moved up to nail a player that fit value and need. It might not have been Agholor, Devin Smith, or Dorsett, but a good pick nonetheless.

Round 3, DG got a stud of a RT and gave up fodder to accomplish this.

I'm not a fan of the 5th round LB, but other than that, Gettleman flexed his style and landed 5 good players that fit this team.

We may not agree with his selections, but I trust a man with his keen eye for talent and the game tapes that he and his scouting department have viewed over my draftbreakdown.com and youtube vids of games.

I am not a fan of DGs approach to free agency at all and think that will be his undoing more than his drafting. For as many people that say free agent winners are rarely the winners in January and February, I would also say that you need more than just the draft to win in January and February.

Ajayi or Allen for me in the 4th. 

 

After reading this about his injury being blown out of proportion,  I'm sold on Ajayi's value at this point in the draft  http://profootballta...not-fabricated/
