A quote I'm happy to hear

I like this draft, gives me some hope.

I said that about this time last year, too, though.

 

We should at least get a starter and maybe long term starter at LT. If so, it was a net win. The rest of the draft is pretty laughable. If Corral can at least be a journeyman backup level player, then his price would at least be worth it.

The rest of the players, well....it's an uphill battle for any player not in the top 3 rounds. If they don't pan out, it's not a tragedy, just a probability.

Not sure why that'd be PR.

Different teams have different approaches.

It’s kind of a no-sh*t comment. You can’t compete in the NFL if you don’t develop the players you draft.

It's the model they want to follow...or at least the one that Fitterer wants to follow.

The actual execution of it might get a whole lot better if certain changes are made next year.

We hope. I am starting to come to grips with the reality that Tepper really is far dumber than we think and does buy into what Rhule is selling him.

He might indeed be here for the long term, regardless of results.

It's possible, I know.

But a pretty good portion of what we've seen lately seems to indicate Fitterer has more influence over the team than he used to.

That's encouraging.

The Patriots did for a long time.

Years of sh-tty drafting did finally catch up to them in the last few seasons.

I disagree because of the previously referenced differences in fundamental philosophy regarding drafting. He would rather have two nickels than a dime. I just disagree with that.

It's worked for the Seahawks.

Honestly, either approach can work. What really matters is that you pick the right players.

Fitt has been saying this since his introductory press conference. It just hasn't happened so much, at least the development. This year will mean a lot for the past couple drafts.
