Are Loomis /Payton as good as their draft reputation?
 
Yes, they knocked it out of the park in 2006, no doubt.

But since then have they really drafted all that well? Other than Nicks and Graham, and to a lesser extent Ingram and Jordan, it doesn't look so good.

I'm not including 2012 since its too early to judge.

I think you're forgetting the most important names:
Gibbs
Williams (good and worse)
Spags
Ryan (?)

I think what it means is who's coaching the draft picks.

Cant forget Morestead, Meachem, and Bushrod in that list which all came to be decent.

Meachem? Are you freaking kidding?

He was put on the Physically Unable to Perform because he wasn't in shape; a rookie WR that wasn't in shape!!!

It was a horrible pick and he didn't warrant a first round selection; and there were better players on the board and definite greater needs at other positions (and still are there)...

well one things for certain, they done better the last couple of years.


What I am ready to throw under the bus though is any player that doesnt even begin to make an impact their rookie year, so far none of the players we drafted that hasnt even begin to impact the game at least to some extent in their rookie year has went on to do anything. You look at other teams and you got some rookie starting and actually performing, this team after each draft, dont even get that far, least not on defense.

I mean I honestly want a list of players in this game or a percentage of them that has done nothing in their rookie year that actually went on to become a really good player.

Obviously none of us know what its like in the draft rooms but there are some serious questions with our recent drafting skills

Patrick Robinson - 1st round when he wasn't even the best CB on his team
Usama young - 2nd round WTF!!
Taylor melhaff - off the team after half a season
Sed Ellis - What a joke
Chip Vaughan and Stanley Arnoux - beasts in college and never even made it on the field here
Al Woods - Cut in preseason for lack of work ethic

Something needs to change with our draft strategy, cuz it aint working
