    Trevathan in his round outweighs David in the second. What stinks is not getting someone who could have contributed immediately at a PON.

    Outside a few selections, the drafting with our regime is still suspect. Players who have been here prior, plus our good FA pick-ups have been pulling the weight. Here is to hoping they address true needs and get good players this draft.
    I am still praying for a MIKE in the draft, and have been since the end of Wilson

      We can only hope. I watched Khalil Mack highlights yesterday and he is solid. I can see where BPC thinks Van Noy could do it for us. Very well rounded players. We would have to move up. Even for Mosley too.

        Thank you. I was talking on draft day last year about the new QB paradigm, and how rookies start ALL THE TIME now, especially re: Osweiler instead of David. Who'd be looking pretty damnedably good in orange right about now. Osweiler might be teriffic e-v-e-n-t-u-ally, but we had a 2-4 year window with Peyton, we shouldda loaded every barrel.

          Again, we weren't even sure we had a one year window with Manning.

            Like Brock would have been able step up last season and lead this team as 1 yr starter in college. No way. You take flyers in the mid rounds not the 2nd.

              You need an intervention.

              • I need an intervention, too ... the Von injury spells trouble down the line here. And it's exactly the kind of situation I was thinking of when I went soapbox on draft day on the Osweiler/over/David pick.

                • In fact, I spend plenty of time hiding from my old posts ... I'm gonna go the other way .....

                  Please pardon an old man re-posting an old rant that looks mildly prescient. For now anyway. If it changes, here's hoping I find some way to hide from this re-post:
