I trust the info Maronne passed on to our front office resulting in this pick. It's the 6th round and these picks are hardly big gambles. One thing we know for sure because of the familiarity, we had to have gathered a good amount of information before making this selection.

Mauling offensive guard sounds good to me. Hardly expected to be a significant contributor so we have plenty of time to develop him.

Thats true, the 6th ans 7th round are for boom/bust projects or special teamers.

Our O-line coaches may view his weaknesses as very correctable, and they envision the finished product as an NFL starter, and if he doesn't develop then no big deal, he's only a 6th rounder.

broad and high jump measure explosiveness of the line. depth at guard is a need, but this guy is terrible

As a proponent of history repeating itself, 2009 was a terrible draft yet, we did win the Super Bowl. I'll take it.

(Although we have 2 starters out of 4 picks, I will take that in any year.)

I tend to trust the experience of those that do this for a living over those that base their opinions on the opinions of those who simply write about what they think of the prospects.

Actually only 1 starter (our 1st rounder which is expected), the other is a Punter, which we gave up two picks for. Punters aren't football players.

But then again, its all we have to go on.

Many experts thought the Jonathan Sullivan pick was horrible. Those that do this for a living selected Jonathan Sullivan.

Many who opine about the picks do so by researching experts who are either close to those that do this for a living or formner GM's and scouts that used to do this for a living.

Its all about who you trust and their credibility.

If Prisco or Florio analyze a prospect, I ignore it.
If Pat Kirwan or Gil Brandt analyzes a prospect, I listen.

I feel like we've reached on every pick so far. Not a huge fan of our draft. Hopefully the FO knows what they're doing.

Maybe we're out of cash (Gotta save it all for Drew y'know.) so we're shopping the bargain basement these last couple of rounds.

One man's "reach" is another's "don't let it get away".
