I didn't say it was a "good" draft. I said it wasn't as bad as some think because of the picks that were pushed into 2013 and the options and players it afforded them.
I don't get this thinking. I really don't.
They only made 3 picks in the first 117 players. 4 of their 7 picks were in the 5th round or later and that 5th round pick simply hasn't been able to stay healthy. The 7th rounder was traded for another 7th rounder this upcoming year.
Jenkins was a bust.
James is a good player.
Looney is a backup...but was also a 4th rounder.
A NUMBER of picks were moved into 2013. People can't sing the praises of the 2013 draft without also mentioning that the work done in 2012 set it up.
It really ain't that complicated.
