My only question is if your talent evaluation skills are better than theirs, why are you online complaining on a forum instead of getting paid to tell coaches your opinion.

3 years from now if any of these players turn into quality pros nobody will give two shits about where they were drafted or what price was paid.
Agreed. I guess they'd rather rant and play online GM. I don't know why those types believe their opinion, and analysis has been validated by anyone other than themselves.

Would you please provide the names of the "FAR more talented and proven" players you think we passed on because we drafted for need? I don't dispute that we drafted for need but I wonder what you think we actually lost out on by doing so. I think the board might be interested in discussing specific players in the context of the need versus BPA approach to drafting by the WFT. I know I would. Thanks!

Did you see/hear RG3 comments about Cousins/Mond QB situation? RG3 is a troll now.

I think you are so off with almost all of your analysis with this draft, I don't even know where to begin. I'll just take this point.

So you want your GM to tell your entire scouting staff to move heaven and earth trying to find the QB of the future - and essentially force the pick of a QB, "some QB with upside" ... and that is a long term approach? No. That is wasting scouts' precious time at the expense of improving the other 95% of the roster, and likely a waste of a pick.

I'm sure they scouted QBs, but I'm glad that's not the only position they scouted, and they didn't just draft one to draft one.

RR and company have said it a million times, about taking a measured approach, not forcing anything, not mortgaging the future, etc. They have proven that through free agency, and I see nothing that changed that with this draft.

Did they draft needs? Of course they did. Every team did. That's why when it's a team's turn to draft, the analysts talk about what that team NEEDS, not who is their best player on the board.

For me, it's just nice to have grown men in charge for a change.

Well said!

Funny thing is Atlanta (where Smith went) also didnt draft a qb.

Don't rule it out
He needs to stay retired similar to why it was good that Jordan Reed retired. He doesn't need to get any more concussions.

That being said, if he's going to play again, um, yes please.

Davis, Kuechly, Holcomb, would be very nice.

Re: Post draft breakdown

I actually like the longsnapper pick now. Fits in with what he said, that they didn't want to fight over UDFA's. And we needed a LS. It wasn't an option to not get one.

You can always recoup a pick, by trading down the next year. The team has 4 rounds of picks before the 5th, if they want to get that pick back.

Re: Post draft breakdown

RGIII is trolling the guy he lost his job to when he’s out of the league and that guy is still making bank. That kinda says it all, doesn’t it? All in for 2021 (podcasting), eh RG? Sheesh.

What a massive disappointment he was - his rookie year, I kept wondering whether it was too good to be true. And it was.

Re: Post draft breakdown

Referring to the trade of a 2022 5th round pick for a 2021 6th plus a 2021 7th as "mortgaging the future" is beyond ridiculous. Sorry, it just is. Pretending to be more knowledgeable about low-round draft picks than WFT's team of professionals just plain makes a poster look silly, especially if he chooses to be absurdly verbose about it. Hey, we all had players that we would have liked to see the WFT draft, and it is fun to discuss, but most of us recognize that RR and company know far, far more than we do, and understand that they have looked at all of these players deeply and have reasons behind their decisions.

Re: Post draft breakdown

Imagine thinking a 5th round pick and a selection of a 6th round LS would be considered “mortgaging the future” after a previous regime of Dan and Bruce completely botching multiple high round draft trades and having the unawareness to get value for Cousins/Trent

Scalper we have come a long long way…just a question, would you have been satisfied trading multiple first round picks as well as a couple mid round to pick up Fields?
