Take it another step, what if they had the top 3 picks that year. Then they could have drafted a bust at DE #1 overall. Draft picks are lottery picks. you don't tank a season to get a guy you hope will be good. Remember when we lost out on Reggie Bush and had to settle on D'Brick? That worked out ok for us.
Not every draft is the same. At the top of the 2014 draft there are 3 players that are better than every single player in the 2013 draft.
Of course anyone can turn into a bust and nothing is guaranteed and players taken after them could end up better blah, blah, blah. Goes without saying. We are just talking about putting ourselves in the best position to get the highest picks.
IMO we won't need to tank nor should we. I think we will be in the Top 4 especially if Sanchez is our QB.
