Now with that being said I think many of you are all wrong on this evaluation. We are looking at each pick and expecting a home run. We need to compare out drafts to the rest of the league and especially to the teams at the top.
We cant hit on every pick, nobody can. Mangini had some great drafts but he also had probably the worst one. Most of the Rex era is still developing.
Yes there has been issues with the lack of picks but we cant say that for the last two years. They have done better with that.
They took a risk when going up to get Sanchez but if you think a guy is going to be your franchise QB then you do what you have to do to go get him. Just look at the Redskins with RGIII. He looks great now but so did Cam N. last year. If RGIII doesnt work out that teams is in trouble for years to come.
Fact is they took a risk with Sanchez and thats something I believe most any GM should and would do to get there franchise guy. Now right now its not looking so good but thats the chance you take.
Overall I dont think they have done that bad with the drafts. I havent agreed with every pick but I never will. Jury is still out on the last few years though.
As I've mentioned a million times, Bradway and Clinkscales (before he left) and those that roll up under them, it's their job!!!!!
And with Clinkscales leaving I now see the draft is all Bradway's now:
And this guy replaced Clinkscales
