Brad Smith was useful, in a minor way, if you liked the Wildcat.
Revis was a great choice. As was Harris. Obvious choices too, but still.
Remind me tho, didn't he also draft Ghost, another BAP , inthe first? Seems like Mangini pretty mcuh went with consensus players in the first, and hit on many of them. But they were still consensus picks. Not exactly shocker picks who worked out.
So, outside obvious BAP #1 picks, how did Mangini "The Evaluator" do? Surelywe have a dozen+ starters from the rest of his drafts right? Kellen Clemens leading us to the Super Bowl in 2013, amirite?
Agree to disagree I guess.
How are you making rules for bonus points on draft picks ?
So they don't get bonus points for taking the BAP with Mangold and Brick but you want to slam him for Gholston?
Also, We traded up for Revis to make sure we had him. So he didn't just come to us, the staff realized he's a cant miss guy so they traded up.
Also FWIW, BAP depends on the teams draft board, not Mel Kiper or Todd McShay. Each team is different.
