The point is will we miss out on a truly great player for something much less?
We’ve found good receivers later in the draft in the past...Jarvis Landry in round 2....Mark Clayton in Round 8.....etc etc etc
Your not going to find a Kyle Pitts that way.....
You make a valid point!
My questions are:
1) What are the historical odds of getting a "truly great player" with a lower pick?
There are always going to be questions about the coaching and game plans enhancing or hurting a player, depending on his skill set and which team he lands on.
2) What is a given teams GM's record in picking successful draftees?
I don't have those answers.
My intuition is that Grier & Company seem to know what they are doing by establishing good draft control with multiple draft picks and most of their higher draft picks (2020 up to now) still on the team. The CAP is under control and they seem to be avoiding big spending to a reasonable degree. Free Agents have improved the team; what else is there to expect except for the degree of improvement.
I do not know if those questions are actually answerable but if they are, I would like to know.
