We are sitting at #7 overall now in the draft. If we lose out and some of those 4 win teams win perhaps we can sneak up all the way to #5 overall... That's at 5 - 11. At 7 - 9 and winning the division we get blown out the first playoff game and pick #21... What a dropoff. This team really deserves top 5 or at least top 10. I see no advantage to the false hope of this winning scenario. We have a garbage coaching staff and needs at many positions.
A high draft pick dosen't mean jack squat. I could build a team or two of players taken past pick 15. We can still get good quality at 21, but a draft is about the quality that you get with all your picks not just one. People over value the first round pick in the draft. You can pretty much get a quality player with an position in the first or second, the drop off in talent isnt that big.
