nothing bugs me more with this team than when we draft a mid round position then the next year we do it again at the same position cus we are unsure of the player we took the previous year, i just see it as a huge flaw in our drafting, guys like gore goldson and haralson have worked, hopefully more come in the future
I agree 100% man. We do tend to do this a lot. More examples: Curtis Taylor and Reggie Smith. We drafted these guys because we thought they had talent. Now people are saying that we should upgrade the safety position. I personally like our safties. Goldson is up and coming and should really be good for us this year with another year in the same system. And Mike Lewis is a 100+ tackle safety for us too, and he's better in coverage and speed than people think. (vs. CHI this year and runnin down Urban, WR for the Cards) I think we should give Taylor and Smith opportunities before we go out and draft guys. McKillop is a 5th rd LB that was never known for his speed or physicality anyway. He was an overachiever for PITT, which isn't a knock on him at all. Like, someone said before, if he ends up being a Jeff Ulbrich type guy for us, then I'm happy.
