Underwhelmed

Does anyone else feel like we only got 1 player of real value and 3 look squaders? We needed help all over the defense and yet again, no linebacker and no corner.

No one is projecting a playoff appearance this year, but damn, can't we at least be competitive?

Re: Underwhelmed

I thought we got good value with our first three picks... Rankins is an every down DT, the only other was Buckner, Thomas is a big receiver everyone was clamoring for, and Vonn Bell was arguably the best cover safety in the draft...

Re: Underwhelmed

I'm just lost as to why they didn't select a guard with that last pick. As soon as I heard them say we had traded up, I thought surely they had to be doing that because they desperately needed a guard and saw someone they wanted.

Instead they drafted Sasquatch.

I'm guessing an Evans re-signing is imminent

I guess. Not much else left out there.

Why draft a guard just to draft a guard? Payton said after the second round that he was disappointed they hadn't added a guard yet. That tells me that they didn't have a guard that they felt was worthy on their board when their pick arrived. I would hope they would pick BPA over reaching.

Re: Underwhelmed

I dont think CB was a big a need as the media do. Obviously we need a healthy Lewis but PJ Williams will be back this year and he was ranked as a late 1st rounder by talent. Lewis-Breaux-Williams-Swan and Bell can play there too.

I dont think the LB were there in depth this year. Alot of 220lbers

I think its Anthony-Laurinaitis-Robertson this year.
You cant fix all the holes in one draft unless youve got the trade bait like the Browns and Titans

Lets be honest
-----Robertson-Laurinaitis-Anthony
Jordan--Rankins--Fairley--Richardson

Looks far better than what was on the field last year

"Two receivers to the left, Garcon to the right. Manning in the shotgun, puts Collie in motion. Looks in his direction...it's picked off! It's picked off! It's Tracy Porter again! He's runnin' free! He's gonna go all the way!
