they said they fielded plenty of calls, but didn't get an offer that took them away from Horn.

Gotcha.  Goes toward the decision to prioritize stud CB in NFC South.  Can't knock the logic.  Just stinks that we see trades flipping on close picks and we couldn't do the same and still get Horn.

Broncos would have taken Surtain still at 9 and Cowboys absolutely loved Horn and would have taken him at 10 so it was basically pick Horn if you wanted him,  or trade back and I'm glad we picked Horn.  

Don't think our fans realize just how great our defense is shaping up to be.

and if you look at our 3rd down stop issues last year, they should understand why Horn is needed.

Exactly.   I get it that we also need OL help,  but we were horrid last year on 3rd downs.   We filled one major need.

Looking at one round of a draft is always a fool's errand.  Our problem in the past is we too often did well in the one round everybody focuses on, and did awful to mediocre after that.

CB was definitely a huge need, but not our biggest need.  The thing about the CB position (and I would say the same about OT, especially LT) is there is usually a solid line between a very small group who can come in and do a credible job as a starter on day one, and guys that will start but noticeably take their lumps.  I guess the best way to describe it is the difference in the size of the lumps they will take.

Slater, Horn, Surtain will all be starters on day one, barring an injury. 

What this pick showed is the staff was not high enough on Fields to make him the #8 pick.  I've said for weeks, fans tend to look at a situation like the "Big Four" QBs and assume every team who has any need for a QB wants one of them.  The problem is, there is probably no team probably wants any of the four, especially in the first round.  They may like one, two, or three of them but it is very unlikely anybody said they would take any of them.  We liked somewhere between 0 and 3 of them, most likely 2 from what I hear.

Now let's let the rest of the draft play out before we drink the Drano punch.

How many catches does Horn give up before the mouth breathers call him a bust?

My money is on 1

They are already call him a bust before he even suits up.

I'm honestly not surprised by our choice. If one thing I have noticed is just how little people on here, know what Rhule is about. Obviously he has a say in who is being drafted. Rhule, is not a HC who desires a spread offense. He is all about defense, and ground and pound football. He is not much different than Riverboat Ron. 

Go take a look at his time in Temple. This is what he does and wants. At Baylor, he had to change his game plan, as all the high school teams in Texas ( obviously where most of his recruits come from) run more from spread RPO offenses. I think Surtain, would have been the better pick at 8, but hey, it's what he wants. They were never going to pick a QB with the pick anyways. All a smokescreen to get a desperate team, to trade up. But when "Jones" didn't go #3, no one wanted to move up anymore and Chicago was too far down to get what they wanted. Many of the fans better go and look and learn, Rhule is an old school coach with an old school mentality. Which, by history, has been a championship mentality. Next year, we will welcome Sam Howell as our "franchise" QB.

Yea sure because he has a flawless record when it comes to the draft. The last QB he selected was Brady in the 6th I guess. Lets forget all of the draft busts he has selected since. 

I think the last quarterback he drafted was Garoppolo.

I agree. I had a hard time just listening to Micah Parsons ramble on. It will be interesting to see how he does in Dallas.

Who said Horn sucks? You guys are such gluttons for this sort of attention it’s nauseating. I don’t like the pick, but will be damned to say he isn’t worthy of it.

 

Main reason I stay off this god damned forum

Micah Parsons better stick to his day job. I give him credit for being a good football player but public speaking will not be his strong suit. 🙂
