Hope they lose every game lol. Ron is getting fired in year three or four. Terrible hire... When they start losing, watch Snyder get involved. This will then lead to Rivera leaving or getting fired. He will never get a hc job if he get's axed again.

I saw speculation from one media member, donít remember who, that Ron had made some indication about 2 GMs. If Kyle Smith stays on, and Hurney is here for 2-3 just to show him the ropes of the other aspects of being a GM outside of talent evaluation, I love it. If Hurney becomes the de facto talent evaluator and Kyle Smith leaves, I hate it.

I'm fine with it. Of course it will be interesting to see how the dominoes fall now with Kyle Smith. Does he remain the VP of player personnel? Does he get an assistant GM title?

It would be a brilliant move by Rivera if it's the former.

I pray that heís here to mentor Smith and nothing else. I hope Kyle is ok with it or we are royally fucked, because this would be like trading a Ferrari for a Yugo.

Kyle Smith to either the Rams or 49ers. This was brought up by Chris Russel's article. I could see that. He leaves after the draft. Hey we have the Ravens lol. JK.

Notable Hurney draft picks:

Julius Peppers
Thomas Davis
DeAngelo Williams
Ryan Kalil
Cam Newton
Luke Kuechly
Josh Norman
DJ Moore
Brian Burns
Derrick Brown
CMAC

That's a pretty good list, yeah he has some duds but all GM's do.

I see this as a good thing, Ron is thinking first and foremost about organizational structure. He's looking for someone experienced who will see the big picture, and the 2nd banana he's looking at (like a Ryan Cowden, etc.) is somebody who will oversee the scouts and put together the draft board.

Will be interesting to see who he gets to be that 2nd banana. I'm not sure a Ryan Cowden would move from his current spot in Tennessee if it's not for a lead dog type role. Maybe it's still Kyle, who knows.

But either way, Ron is realizing he needs a hierarchy in place. He needs someone who can help him make deals; negotiate on behalf of the organization for both player contracts and trades, and put together the big picture for roster building. And he needs someone to report in to that guy who will put together the draft board and do all the work required to have a strong draft. The preparation for the draft is a job where the horizon is always one year out, and it's too much work to think any differently than that. But the GM needs to be looking 3, maybe 5 years down the road. He can't be bogged down in the draft prep.

In a year where a big QB trade may be the most important decision we make, I don't want an inexperienced draft guru doing the negotiating. I look at this as another step we're taking towards becoming a grown-up organization.

Traditionally they hit on their 1st rounders. That's important.
