This is basically my attitude. Every draft we have players that I really want at certain spots, and it is rare that we actually draft them. This year we got two of my guys in Tua and Weaver.We drafted who we drafted. All we can do is move forward and hope for the best.
I hate to break it to you guys but Ireland discovered Taysom Hill
It's plainly obvious that many times players we should have drafted were picked up right before our pick. It's why almost every guy after Tua was considered a reach. I don't grade the FO that highly on this draft, them seem like amateurs who got outmaneuvered by real pros.
Talking heads with their mocks tell you a player should go at a certain spot......so you are convinced the dolphin's FO is clueless.
I was jus keedingNo, actually he didn't 'discover' Taysom Hill. Lots of teams were very aware of who he was. And Green Bay actually signed him as an UDFA first.
Furthermore, what has Taysom Hill -- who turns 30 years old in a few months btw -- accomplished thus far in his career to be touting Jeff Ireland for signing him off the waiver wire?
Riddle me that.
Fortunately for the Saints, Mickey Loomis is the teams GM and not Ireland. Ireland proved in his time with the Dolphins that he doesn’t have a clue when it comes to building a team and he is best suited to being no more than an underling in an NFL organization. Which is exactly what he is with the Saints.Such an Ireland move. Pick a player to stuff up another teams needs based on intel, rather than picking a player that your team really needed. CB, LB and G/C were the needs. with LB being the biggest. Brooks and Queen still available. Well done Jeff.
He’s only the assistant GM. Wasn’t his call.Such an Ireland move. Pick a player to stuff up another teams needs based on intel, rather than picking a player that your team really needed. CB, LB and G/C were the needs. with LB being the biggest. Brooks and Queen still available. Well done Jeff.
