The whole world knows what our biggest need is and draft experts agree that the quality at the position drops of considerably after the first round - hell some even think that we'll miss out on the best tackles cuz we're not in the top 10 but I'd still rather get a second tier tackle with #13 or #17 than wait for the scraps in round 2.
That's ridiculous. No OT in the first round = upsetting. Hardly a draft fail.
We needed OT in the first round last year too...was that a fail?
Worst thing this team can do is say something so ignorant. What happens if Okung, Williams, Bulaga, Davis and even Campbell are all gone by the time we pick? Grab Brown? What if they take webzone favorite CJ Spiller at #13 and then the Hawks take Charles Brown at #14?
Who do you take at #17? Has to be OT right? Or the draft would be a fail?
Any time a team drafts purely for need it hardly ever works out in a good way. You don't leave talent on the board which can help your team just because you have a hole. Hell the hole at RT isn't even that huge. People are acting like we're going to play with 4 guys on the line. There have been highly successful RTs drafted outside of the first round. Not to mention with the improvement in coaching things should be better even if we field the same players.
