Agree, we were not in a position to draft those players so who cares. Cooks was the right call. Probably one of the only ones we got right in a while. Ingram was not the right call but, he dropped something like 5 spots and we needed a healthy RB so in that sense it was a good rational decision. If he stays on the field this season then yes, it was another good move. Overall we have done ok, some big misses but so does everyone else. There is no real science to it.

I bekieve that poor scouting was the problem. Not a draft board where some one fell or we over reached for a prospect.

Disagree that Cooks was the right call even though I love that he's a Saint...

Brandin is a talented player and a great, great person...

But there were other "impact" wide receivers still on the board, and we still would have had a third round pick...

In fact, Arizona took that third round pick and selected Pittsburgh St John Brown who was as productive as Cooks, even collecting two gaming winning touchdowns, until Carson Palmer went down...

Rugs, gotta disagree here...

If our scouting has been so bad, how do you account for some of the mid-late round gems we've collected as well as the UDFA we've found - especially at the RB position?!?

Draft Management is the problem...we have over-reached (i.e. Sedrick Ellis, Malcolm Jenkins, Patrick Robinson, Mark Ingram) or failed to make the moves to select needs at their apropos spot in the draft...
