I agree with both of those post 100%
Let's not forget there's free agency to deal with this year, too. We can look forward to the FA period instead of dreading it this year. We'll finally be able to bring in some talent, instead of waving it all away, so we won't have to rely completely on the draft for fresh meat, as it were...
we need a
a FA Safety
a FA LB
and a FA OL
the QB and RB can be drafted
But you have to remember that the draft is an inexact science. Getting quantity is the only way to ensure quality. Don't listen to these people who say the top 3 players are all franchise players. I guarantee at least one ends up mediocre or worse be it via injuries or otherwise.
And also, I wouldn't count on FA... it's very hard to come out ahead really. Most signings just hurt teams. All of the successful teams build their team though the draft. It's no coinsidence.
I think bringing a QB in and playing him immediately is a mixed bag, but letting a guy learn for a couple of years has proven to work a little better. Let a guy learn how to be a pro before you ask him to lead a huddle...
Other positions, not so much, but QB seems to work...
BTW, is the ENTIRE USC OFFENSIVE LINE ENTERING THE DRAFT???
i strongly agree. take young bush or leinart no question about it
I think it's insane to think that a player gets better by watching games than playing. My theory is that some qb's have fragile minds and having a bad season their rookie season stays in their head the next year.
ya know ,I'm not sure it really matters
vet or rook, it's a matter of how quickly the player adapts
I agree with Carpy's statement about quality v quantity. Sure the draft is a crap shoot, but I don't think another year flooded with youth is the answer.
I stick at #3 and am very happy with Leinart, Bush or Young. Again if only one of them came out and we actually got them, many would consider it immediately one of the best drafts ever. No way should we pass.
