Big Mo and Coples were all Rex..He demanded both.. He knows what hes doing picking the D, especially Dline but obviously needs help with the O. Im not saying stephen hill is a bad pick, but it should have been obvious he was a project because of the style of O his college ran. We had imediate needs not to be drafting projects in 2nd round, trading up in 2nd round especially. MT has given lost us so many picks.. Ducasse was another 2nd rounder high risk that failed..hopefully Hill pans out.. You see teams pick up a gem in the late rounds - Redskins rb morris was 6th round? Seahawks got a steal in wilson then another steal in late rounds.. Not the Jets.. Kerley was a very fine pick for 5th round? but is not a steal you see many teams getting.
