i think because we had so many picks, and because there were players that we could use them on...
I think they went with the "lets draft 5 db's and at least one of them will turn out to be an all pro and set us up for the future" then someone else said, yeah and while we're at it...lets take another running back...if we have all the good ones, no one else will be able to run the ball on us.
then someone else said, yep. And you know what, we could cheat the system by drafting star players who get injured and set on a season while they learn the playbook and get fully nursed back to playing health. By next year, they'll technically be rookies, and way a head of the game.
