    Wrong. You do not take a player who JUST SUFFERED an ACL injury in the Top 10. Even top 15 might be pushing it. Evidence? Simmons was pick 19. There were 3 other DTs taken before him... Williams, Oliver, and Wilkins.

    And again, that's irrelevant. Acting like he "fell in our laps" completely ignores the inherit risk of drafting someone with an injury issue.

    How is that irrelevant?

    If it were irrelevant he would have landed in the Top 10.

    And secondly, you just laid out another point.... RISK.... Jon Robinson obviously loves taking unnecessary risk :

    1. a Raw, KR/PR-CB...... at 18th overall -
    2. an INJURED at the time of the Draft WR (corey) who you got 1 year of production out of AFTER a gem (AJ) was found... at 5th overall...
    3.a RT (I'm not even gonna mention his name) with character questions off hand during the interview process by other teams, and already having RT Dennis Kelly (who was the ONLY RT in the league who didn't allow a sack) and a screeching need for an EDGE
    4. Kevin Dodd........ off 1 year of production
    5. Austin Johnson....

    The only difference for Simmons is that A. His recovery was much much faster than gauged and B. Every blind squirrel finds a nut once in a while..... and a @Fry (lol jp fry)

    I think RISK is one thing JROB needs to pull the flight stick back up on for a little while....

    What the what?! How was Adoree a risk? He won the Jim Thorpe award, was 1st team All-American, and 2 time first team All-conference. He was as safe a bet you could get at that position in the draft. Quit making up reasons to be disappointed with JRob.

    Really? Even when the scouting reports said he would be a RAW project?...

    And no, the safe bets tossing out injury questioned players was Adam's and Ju Ju.... and even WITH injury lattimore and ju ju

    So we are blaming JRob for not taking JuJu, who went 62nd, with the 18th pick?

    I'm saying the injuries were irrelevant to whether or not they were good picks or not. It doesn't matter if they had top 5 talent, taking someone coming off a serious injury is a risk in the 1st round regardless.

    Again, Adoree was every bit a shutdown corner in 2018-2019, so I don't know why you keep bringing him up.

    Corey Davis has had 2 good seasons out of 4. His main problem seems to be staying fully healthy. Not the sort of player you expect out of top 5 pick, but he's a solid player nonetheless.

    Jrob pretty consistently does great in rounds 2-5 so we should just always trade back out of the first for more picks. ;)

    Also, I do not count the Dodd and Austin Johnson pick because JRob had just been hired and had to use the previous regimes scouting department.

    Well, you would assume he was familiar with the drafts players from his New England tenure so I’m not sure that is fully valid. I think he owns Dodd and Johnson as mis-fires.

    Is Austin Johnson really that much of a misfire? He started or was a regular rotation guy for basically 3 of 4 years, he signed a 2nd contract and he is still in the league. And the 5 or so DT's taken after him haven't really done much either (outside of 1 year by Jarran Reed).
