    Was Ciscowski involved with our 2009 draft?

    If so, I'd love to hear him account for that.

    He'd probably say it wasn't very good.

    Of course we cannot tell how much Jerruh had to do with that draft, but any way you look at it 2009 sucked basketballs through garden hoses.

    We know Jerry traded away two of our top three picks, which will hamstring any draft.

    I seem to recall the 2009 draft being referred to as a scouts draft.

    I think this years draft will be a good one.

    We like what little we've seen from Smith, Arkin, Harris & Nagy.

    But seeing NOTHING of Carter & Murray concerns me. I don't have much hope of Carter contributing at all this year. A rookie who had zero offseason/preseason work with his team and coming off an ACL to boot? I think its quite possible he's a wash for 2011.

    I think Carter will have a hard time doing much on defense but I do think he will be able to play special teams pretty early on.

    We intended to draft backups (read: special teams) and obviously didn't take the "best players regardless".

    You are right!

    Two of our top four choices not practicing a single down is just great!

    He did mention that they hoped some of the players could eventually transition to starters. Obviously, that has not happened. Unless Butler replaces Spenser next year ( if he leaves in free agency), we will likely not have a starter from the 2009 draft class.

    sounds like they had a strategy for drafting a certain type of player-mentality.

    The 2009 draft and FA season was a disaster. It set the team back 2-3 regular starters at positions where we're scrambling for depth now. You can't have that happen ever and remain a contender very long.

    On a high note, though, we might have come up roses already in 2011. If we walk away with two OL starters, another OL developmental candidate, a WR3 option, and a potential dime back CB from this draft in a year or so, all without our #2 and #3 picks still not touching the field, we'll have patched the talent-hole we dug for ourselves in 2009.

    09 was a horrible draft. But if Victor Butler and John Phillips contribute this year, well that's really all we can hope for from the 09 class.
