As far as wanting to lose while Tanahan was here to move up in the draft well I think NOT..
did not matter where that schmuck DAFTED with only a few exceptions were they worth a crap..
Have I mentioned that during his tenure we only resigned 13% or 6 0f 41 of his rounds 1-3 picks.. Yes I have and you know it..
So the odds of getting a better player while he was in town well I was not holding my breath..
Now last year is a different story we finally had someone that did not have his head up his ass on draft day, John so far has done a masterful job of getting talent where we needed it.. (save perhaps Mays) but certainly no where near Tanahans 13%.
Had we lost to PIT in OT by a FG or even a TD would not have been anything to hang our heads about.. year one into a 3-4 rebuild with Tebow as QB. Most folks would have rejoiced.. and instead of trading back we would have had options on the following..
13 Arizona Cardinals Michael Floyd WR Notre Dame 14 St. Louis Rams Michael Brockers DT LSU 15 Seattle Seahawks Bruce Irvin DE West Virginia 16 New York Jets Quinton Coples DE North Carolina 17 Cincinnati Bengals Dre Kirkpatrick CB Alabama 18 San Diego Chargers Melvin Ingram LB South Carolina 19 Chicago Bears Shea McClellin DE Boise State 20 Tennessee Titans Kendall Wright WR Baylor 21 New England Patriots Chandler Jones DE Syracuse 22 Cleveland Browns Brandon Weeden QB Oklahoma State 23 Detroit Lions Riley Reiff T Iowa 24 Pittsburgh Steelers David DeCastro G Stanford
2 36 Derek Wolfe DT Cincinnati 2 57 Brock Osweiler QB Arizona State 3 67 Ronnie Hillman RB San Diego State 4 101 Omar Bolden CB Arizona State 4 108 Philip Blake C Baylor
