Im somewhat left with the impression we just drafted our board vs reacting to how the draft played out. Seems like we drafted guys who RR interviewed with personally.

Especially that 4R on a blocking TE that by all looks was a pretty big reach. But he interviewed with RR personally. They have a good conversation ... suddenly we are picking him in the 4th when he was projected to be a 6th or UDFA.

I feel like the personal interviews steered our decisions vs being reactive to the board and who is dropping etc. I dont think we went BPA .. or our board favors physical stats vs film/playing stats
You may be right on both points (favoring physical potential vs college production, and favoring guys they knew and/or had talked to)... and I'm perfectly fine with it !

I actually like the fact that RR and JDR made sure they were drafting good fits for this team, both as players and characters !
I don't think it ended up being real reaches, at least early on (and does anybody on earth really knows if a 5th/6th/7th round was a reach ?).

We got some BPA/close to BPA players that filled key needs early on, we added some depth where we needed it later on... Until it doesn't pan out, I don't see any reason to complain.
