Not premature in the slightest. Celek is the only person that has even touched the field. Draft was aweful. Any spin otherwise is extreme homerism to protect the image of Harbaalke. They failed this year. You cant make any comparisons to past years because you know what? our draft pics contributed. Not so much this year. This is not college football where the rookies coming in should redshirt. This is the NFL. Even the patriots get use out of draft pics as rookies, yet we are so deep we can aford to not have a single player from our draft contribute? please.
Thats a pretty bold claim to make when you really have no idea whats going on behind the scenes. Neither do I, but I do know are #1 and #2 picks were spots we are deep at right now, but next year may not be so deep, Gore isnt getting any younger and although he is having a damn good season, for the past two games he has gotten X Rays for minor issues, what happens when one isnt so minor anymore, it happens almost every year for a couple games. Or next year when the depth at WR drops by two players, Jacobs is only a one year deal. We arent the Patriots or any other team, were developing our high picks for a good reason, LMJ and Jenkins were both small and not entirely fit for the NFL but that doesnt take away that both are talented and after some real development for those talents to translate to the NFL. But Im just a homer defending Harbaalke I guess.
