People on here overrate size?
McCloughan/Baalke draft philosophy doesnt agree with u. With high picks, it's always about size/speed/strength. And personally, I agree with them
LOL, of course there are exceptions but...straight from Trent's mouth:
Q: On his philosophy vs. McCloughan's: TB: I think Scot and I share a very similar philosophy. I think the big thing is - size is important
, intelligence is important, competitiveness is important. The intangibles, what they bring to the locker room. All those things are important and Scot and I both shared those beliefs. And I think it stems not only from the personnel side but the coaching staff believes the same thing. And as an organization, that's what's important, that we're all on the same page. With that said, there are exceptions in this business. There are guys that don't meet the height, weight, speed standards, that come in and can be pretty good football players. And I think you've got to evaluate those guys on a case-by-case basis
. And when you make a decision to draft or being in a free agent or any type of player as an exception, everyone just has to be on the same page as to exactly what you're dealing with
