If we really are going into a major clear out / rebuild, quantity beats quality until you have yourself a stable core of good younger players. We do have some young guys already who MAY turn out to be part of that core in a year or two - Kerley, Hill, Davis, Coples, Wilkerson, Ellis all spring to mind straight away. So we aren't starting completely from scratch.
Scary thing is, I don't see this organisation committing to a long term program of investment, rather a series of short term patch ups. Unless Woody fires the lot of them and brings in a whole new team with exactly that remit. I guess we'll see at season's end how committed he is to building a winning team.
I agree, but if no one can think of a player we'd covet in the top three, with all our holes, what are the chances that another team would find one? If it was a draft like last year, with luck, rgIII, and richardson, then I could see it. The way this draft is shaping up looks like it might be a good bet to see if the player you want slides out of that position. There will be players that are the best at their positions as in every year, but are there any "once in a decade" type of players as there were last year?
