Are Loomis /Payton as good as their draft reputation?

Combined with the fact that no team every picks one on day 1, or the fact that only 1 or 2 are drafted every year, or the fact that every team that does pick one has extra picks in the draft, or that... aww nevermind.

C'mon now. Morestead was one of the shining stars on our defense last year.

QB Ben Roethlisberger, C Maurkice Pouncey, G/T Willie Colon (Hofstra), WR Antonio Brown, WR Mike Wallace, RB Rashard Mendenhall, RT Max Starks - Ragin you;re aching brother, cause the Steelers get it done on both sides of the ball and that's why they get perennial consideration...

F*** the Clowns, we know we're better; it's Pittsburgh, Baltimore, San Fran that we want comparable drafts...

Bullshinski, take an oath to the constitution, take a weapon, and take a ride over the pond; or watch Mike Rowe - those are hard jobs! Most scouts are hired by nepotistic means and have less ability at assessing football than B&G Members!

Actually, Hagan (sorry Bro, gotta drag you in with me) and I have been banging the drum that Loomis is overrated as a GM and that he either needs to get a talent department to match his salary cap expertise and Sean Payton's Field General Skills or we need to find a new GM cause any bean counter can slot salaries and pick up Mr Benson's Dry Cleaning; because you shouldn't be named Executive of the Year because you drafted Colston in the 7th round when you and every other team passed on him for six-plus rounds!

I'd love to know which teams draft better than everybody else. Cause this team must be the 20 time SB champs..... The team putting all this NFL talent on the field at seven picks per season should never get beat!!!!!

78.75 is the winning percentage

For which team?

3 in 10 are still on the roster. 2 in 10 actually start.

For a team with a near 80% winning mark over the 4 years in question?

That's Bill Belichik and the New England Patriots.

13 teams managed to keep 50% or more of their drafter players on the roster (maybe many of those rosters sucked). 36.4 was the highest percentage of drafted starters. The rest of the league was below that. Over the 4 years, the Patriots had the highest winning percentage.

For the Saints over the 4 years, 4 in 10 make the roster and 3 in 10 start.

It's a crap shoot Danno - at best an educated gamble. Still a gamble any way you slice it.
Preach!!!

Pretty sure I said "behind the scene jobs in sports"

How in the world did I ever compare it to any real jobs? I said IN SPORTS

No **** it doesn't compare to serving your country and I wasn't trying to say so

Oh if you sense any aggression it's not towards you - I've heard some Saints scouts whine and ***** at a Metairie watering hole when every regular at that sports bar had been part of conversations "pre-draft" that would have put the Saints, talent-wise, in the SuperBowl years before that magical run...

Alley, I'd put Pittsburgh, Baltimore, NY Giants, San Fran as teams that draft much better than others...
