As long as we finally land some playmakers instead of a bunch of "solid depth" players, I'll be happy. But I have little faith in Scottie Mac. I shouldn't be able to compile better draft plans than him since he's being paid, yet for the past two years, that seems to be the case.
I really don't think his drafts have been all that bad. His FA moves haven't been all that hot, but his drafting has been at least a B if not a B+
I give Scot a C+ to B- at best. We need playmakers, not just solid contributors. Out of his past 4 drafts, how many can we really say that about? As far as 2008's draft, the best player from there so far has arguably been Morgan, and even he hasn't been very good overall, with many critical drops.
In 4 years, these are the playmakers we've nabbed: Crabtree, Willis, Goldson, Davis.
The reason I feel this is subpar is because when I compare it to drafts of other teams, I see a team like Indianapolis getting multiple playmakers per draft, each year.
Over the past four years, the Colts have landed: RB Donald Brown, CB Jerraud Powers, WR Collie, WR Garcon, WR Gonzalez, OT Ugoh, LB Clint Session, OT Charlie Johnson, S Bethea, even return man CB Rushing. That's 10 key players right there.
How about the Vikings over 4 years: FS Tyrell Johnson, C Sullivan (has been outstanding as a rookie), WR Harvin, OT Loadholt, ILB Brinkley (played outstanding since entering lineup), RB Peterson, WR Rice, CB Griffin, DE Ray Edwards. That's 9.
Jets: Sanchez, Greene, TE Keller, CBs Lowery and Revis, ILB Harris, OL Ferguson and Mangold, and KR Leon Washingon (although hurt now) -- 9 great players -- despite only having 4 picks or less two out of the past three years, and no more than 6 in the past three years.
