    Or AJ25, but to be contrary, does he make up for it with core players drafted after the first round?
    AJ Brown, Henry, Jayon Brown (questionable for core), Byard.

    I agree 1sts should be guys that are good enough to stay long term (well passed rookie contract). Sometimes that backfires and I don't necessarily hold injuries against the GM/scouts unless they already had that history.

    Every team says that, That isn’t a JRob thing. But how are those guys character issues? I get that Wilson went crazy after he got drafted and handed a bunch of money but there was ONCE AGAIN no proof of that before. Neither with Dodd, Dodd just didn’t want to play football.

    Dodd was obviously a mistake. Wilson probably.

    I just don’t get the JRob hate. This team has done nothing bust get better with him as GM.

    I'm very happy with Jrob, doesn't mean I won't criticize, but honestly with the history of over excitement for mediocre players, teams, almost anything, I would think everyone here is at least someone on Jrob's side. I mean, it's not like even his worst picks are Webster bad.

    I don’t disagree. Keep saying JRob slightly above average. Only get triggered when folks irrationally defend Dodd, Wilson and other early picks. And defend JRob on those.

    He hit on Henry, AJ and Jayon Brown. Conklin I think he missed- traded a LOT of draft capital for essentially a one contract player.

    There isn’t hate. Don’t know how many times I have to type that. JRob just a bit above average. Only get worked up when folks try to rationalize his bad moves. That’s how organizations stay stuck slightly above average and no better.

    Barf. If I hear the word “triggered” one more time I’m gonna lose it.

    Conklin is an All Pro tackle, on what planet is that a miss?

    Not for us though is his point.

    If you're on the doorstep to losing it, at that moment would you be "triggered"?

    In regards to acquiring a core player with so much draft capital that was spent on him.

    I would say most if not all of these well above average teams didn’t draft well they just got very lucky at the QB spot. There are good GMs and bad GMS and I think JRob is good, I don’t think there are a bunch of different levels. The Chiefs are average at best without Mahomes. Patriots, Packers, and on and on,,, Texans, Browns of the past, Jags etc etc have bad GMs.

    JRob has hit more often in his moves than he has missed. Measured by the things he can control.

    I'm all aboard the Joe Tryon hype train at the moment.

    Will def need to grab at least one stud pass rusher - someone like Judon - in FA

    and follow it back up with 1-2 edge rushers in Draft.

    Anything less will be a total failure and injustice.
