    Rex has too much control over the draft. We have used our highest picks on defensive players. The value of a first round pick is much higher than a fourth or fifth round pick. That is why your argument is flawed. Not every pick is equal, therefore we cannot just add up the total number of picks. The picks are weighted.
    If you want to argue weight of draft picks (rather than just round), I suspect you'll lose that too.

    A top five pick, two mid second rounders, and the first pick in the third, compared with a mid first rounder, two low first rounders, and a low second.

    Looks pretty balanced to me.

    Here's the last three drafts

    round offense defense
    one 0 3
    two 2 0
    three 0 2
    four 2 0
    five 2 0
    six 2 1
    seven 3 1


    Lots of developmental guys on offense in the late rounds while the impact players and immediate starters are all on defense.

    Also note that one of those second round offensive players was Ducasse who hasn't left the bench.

    Sanchez hurt his shoulder worse than we think. Zero attemps past 10 yards, inaccurate, can't make the out throw. Has thrown way too many int's during practice. They are better off with McElroy.

    no argument that in the past couple of years we've spent more high picks on D. Also no argument that Ducasse hasn't lived up to his draft spot. However, those are different arguments than were made originally.

    Incidentally, the high picks used on O in 2009 SHOULD be in their prime today, and paying the biggest dividends right now (as opposed to rookies, who even when taken in the first round usually aren't difference makers right away).
