Really? he had draft imput when he was just a LB's coach? That was one move McClueless and Nolan got right.
I do remember sing did not want to draft Crabtree either and wanted Oher. McClueless set him straight on that one too.
Yeah, here's the link. To be fair, he claims he changed his mind after "hearing his story". But that doesnt change the fact he can't judge talent.
"SINGLETARY: You know what, I didn't realize that he was special until I heard his story. I remember talking to Scot several times and I'm saying, ‘Scot, I don't see it. I mean, I'm looking at it, but he's not doing anything. He's not knocking anybody out… and we're talking about picking him with the 11th pick.
'But then I heard his story. I had a chance to sit down and look at his story. To me, it changed my whole mindset. Because I'm looking at a guy that had gone through a lot of things. He was injured. Didn't miss games. Had family issues. He was the oldest taking care of his younger siblings. Responsible for them. Lost his younger brother before the season started, right before the season started.
