    While we are on this topic, here are Bill Billechicks last four 1st round picks (which are the only 4 theyve made since 2012).
    NKeal Harry, Sony Michel, Malcolm Brown, Dominque Easley. I'll take JRob in the drafting department. Free agency, Bill for sure.

    My message has been the same about JRob all along. Hasn’t changed. I just don’t get caught in the up and down. I disagree with your statement he’s hit on more early picks than he’s missed. Where JRob has been above average is on his late round picks. And there’s no denying that he’s done well to improve depth quality. And he’s brought in Vrabel which I fully supported from day one. The proof is in the pudding- the team went to the AFC Championship. So JRob def trending up right now.

    I said I like the Clowney rental. But if you need me to pull reviews about his practice ethic- I will. Clowney really is different from what JRob billed as characteristic his original id FA and draft target personality originally. I’m glad to see that has changed.

    Early Round misses:
    Corey Davis, Kevin Dodd, Austin Johnson, Taywan Taylor

    Early Round hits:
    Adoree Jackson, Jack Conklin, Derrick Henry, Kevin Byard, Jonnu Smith, AJ Brown, Rashaan Evans, Harold Landry

    it’s not even close. Could be adding Simmons and Fulton on the list very soon too.

    Do you also remember Vrabel and JRob saying that once you have a culture and ID established you can take a few chances on players?

    Not sure you can for sure say Davis is a miss. WR were slim in that draft and we had to go with one. I wish we could have traded down, but someone would have to want to trade up and that is always the case. QB play was weak for most of Davis’s time with us too. He may nail this season. He certainly has the tools to do so.

    Currently, Davis is a miss. He has not performed like a top 5 pick or like a 1st round WR. Yes he had some shaky QB play but currently he is a miss. That could change, sure. I think Davis will have his best year yet actually.

    I think you have to look at players in a broader context. Who was available when they were taken, who are the supporting players and so forth. We just evaluate differently. I have Davis in the “to be determined” category. If he isn’t a trained killer this year, then for me, he is a miss.

    I mean just because the other WR’s haven’t been better doesn’t mean it was a good pick. That draft certainly had some duds for sure. And Davis is a good player but a top 5 pick should be contributing more than he has to this point.

    I was probably higher on CD than most. Thought he would be the next TO.

    Before JROB the draft was boring for me usually 1 or maybe 2 players would make the roster at most and the rest never play a single down for us.

    But now late round guys like J.Brown ,David long Jr,Crunshak and hooker actually play for us.

    No, it doesn’t mean it’s a good pick based on others, but it means it may have been the best pick given the circumstances. People get too hung up on a top 10 pick not being a perennial pro bowler. Sometimes the group just doesn’t have that many and you balance the pick with need. If Davis performs this year at the level he should, then good pick. If he doesn’t, he’ll be somebodies number 2 or 3 and won’t be a Titan and then he is a miss for sure. I am just saying, still too early to be definitive.

    He’s put up WR2 numbers one time in his career. He’s barely a WR2 on most teams currently. Keyword is CURRENTLY.

    If that 2017 draft is redone Davis probably isn’t even a first rounder.

    He can turn it around. I think he will. But RIGHT NOW it’s been a miss. If I didn’t include him on my list you know the JRob haters would. And if you’re making a list based off of today. Davis has to be on it.
