A bunch of people here like to bash our drafts every spring, but what it really comes down to is what the coaching staff gets out of the talented guys our GM's have drafted.
Just like a bunch of people always like to beam about it.
we got two 1st-round-talent players in Jordan and Taylor. Both should be excellent starters.
A very versatile lineman in Thomas.
Will Davis is quality depth in the secondary.
Jenkins can be a very good starting linebacker.
Gillislee will be an excellent complimentary back.
I'm not a big Dion Sims guy but who knows.
Love the Caleb Sturgis pick a ton
and Don Jones looks like a nice project too.
That being said, it's easy to try to oversimplify. IMO success requires a mixture of having the right talent and the right coaching staff that connects with said talent. Earth shattering information I know I know. But it's not just one or the other.
Even if your belief is we did get amazing talent this year (like you did last year), what on God's green Earth has this staff done to warrant any confidence?
