Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, Idzik has overtaken in-house candidate Scott Cohen and Pittsburgh's Omar Khan as the "clear frontrunner" to replace Mike Tannenbaum in New York. Schefter reports Idzik could be offered the job "as early as tonight." Idzik's title with Seattle is "VP of Football Administration." He has little to no background as an evaluator of personnel and talent.
I'm just going to say this much. I would rather a GM that listens to his scouts then one that thinks he knows better. If you look at some of our worst picks it was basically our GM trying to out smart someone. John Idzik knows football very well he has been around it all his life. He is not going to try to steal someone elses pick or worry when one position fly's off the board early. Idzik knows enough about talent evaluation to know the best G on the board in the 2nd round doesn't always have 2nd round value.
