An ORT was a must. They couldn't have taken a snap without a high quality prospect there. In fact, I hope they draft another ORT prospect. O'Neil Cousins can't play a lick. Makes me miss St Clair.
I felt bad criticizing Pashos all year after the injury he played with.
But yes, indeed. Lets see how Pinkston and Luvao play at Guards now, and pray we stay healthy.
I thought Pink got better.
I have low optimism for Lavauo. But again, you can't fix it all in one draft. I think they netted 3 potential quality starters. Do that with theWR's and pass rush and maybe a DB next draft and we start to compete.
I think we'll have a shot at a gem changing WR or elite pass rusher when we draft op 5 again next draft.
And maybe, just maybe, we can get things like a RG in FA like a normal franchise.
Couple of things.
We had 3 picks in the top 40 - getting 3 potential quality starters for a team that has won 9 games in 2 years is the floor - the bare minimum.
If we're picking in the top 5 again next year then why didn't we wait to get a QB next year? Could have grabbed OL at 22 and WR at 37, etc. Is it he Randy factor or they loved Weeden that much or hate Brad McCoy that much?
I think they grabbed Weeden this year because they know another top 5 pick next year means the ax. They HAD to improve QB play asap, even if it means a band aid approach instead of a more fundamental build. I see this a bit differently. I see Randy's impatience forcing the hand of H&H.
