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.
Neither can even crack the roster for special teams. Your telling me its OK that Dixon has more value to the team then our second round RB from 2012? LMJ has bust written all over him.
I Happen to like Jenkins but feel any WR was a reach at that pick, especially considering the talent that could have been had and made an impact from day 1.
Martin was there if we wanted Gores replacment. Thats not hat they drafted LMJ to be. A scat back with no special teams ability, and an average at best receiving game is just simply not that valuable in the NFL. Not to mention there wasnt much differance in talent from the WR's drafted in the first to the WR"s drafted in the second.
The rest of the draft is non existant as well. I will not give Harbaalkie the benefit of the doubt on this one. They simply messed up this draft. No two ways about it.
What dont some of you get? You cannot have your entire draft class non existant in their first year in todays NFL and call it a succesful draft. doesnt work that way. Spin spin all you want, but even the deepest teams in this league find rookies that make an impact. Thats why Teams like the Patriots stay on top. It just doesnt work like that in the NFL, and if you think it does, please show me an example. This draft IS hurting this team THIS year. I hope it doesnt come back to haunt us in the future.
