I'm not going to say this is a complete waste of a draft just yet. The 4th round trade intrigues me. We get a proven veteran (though he's 32 years old) and an OT (even though from a small school) who could be something special with some good coaching. The 2nd round pick is what really threw me off, though. I was totally blindsided by the Harper pick. I was glad to get Faine, but drafting another safety was definitely confusing, because I know he was NOT for a need or the BPA.

I sure hope Gibbs is equal to his billing as a great defensive mind, because he is going to need it with all these UNDER ACHIEVERS with potential. Sounds a lot like PROJECTS to me.

Back to the George!

I am definitely noticing a trend with these picks, though. If we all recall under the Haslett regime, he focused so much on team speed and more team speedl, but the majority of them had a tremendous lack of game-time smarts. The guys we've selected after Bush all seem to have the same traits of being smart players. I keep wavering on what I think about these choices, but this could eventually be a good thing.

You can have all the talent in the world, but if you can't execute the scheme, you lose. One of our biggest problems the last couple of years was poor execution.

I'll take a smart, consistent player over some dumb, bumbling, athletic-freak anyday.

I think Hollis Thomas was a good move. The guy has a lot of upside. He is getting up there in age, but I think this coaching staff wants to win this year. I think they wanted to get some guys on board that will start helping this season. Bush, Thomas and Faine are not projects. They are players that can come in and help now.

I wonder why Faine and Thomas are second on their respective team dept charts. I hope they can HELP now.
