"If they do it right" they can get a starter with each of their picks, They could get a Colston with their 6th, a Brady with their 5th, a Atkins with the fourth...
There are starters drafted with late picks every year.
Yes, and there are drafts that look good that turn out to be bad.
It's easy to say right now that this draft looks loaded with DL/OL, but injuries, laziness and players merely not panning out could wipe that out. Plus, just picking the ones who will pan out is more difficult than some seem to think.
I always find it funny that writers like this refer to it as being "smart." The draft has shown over the years that it's more about being lucky than being smart, as with the players you've listed. Sure, you need to do your homework, have good scouts, stick to your board and make the best picks possible by it, but it still doesn't guarantee you're going to come out looking smart.
