If they are evaluating poorly, they are wasting resources that could be better spent elsewhere. Since this is a common theme for this org, it's easy to think they're still doing it.

says you. they're considered one of the better drafting teams.

Problem is they could have drafted him in the 6th like 1359 picks later.
:muttley:

you know this how? you know nobody else possibly would have taken him, you have more info than them?

That would be a wonky draft strategy - draft a guy on noone's radar in the 3rd round just in case.

as I said how do you know he wasn't on someone's radar? Who did you talk to within the league

Look you can sit there and say what-if all day but it's a weak defense of your argument. Not to mention completely uninteresting.

What we know is that the football pundits all had a low grade on him (several thought he wouldn't even be drafted) and we took him in the third round. :huh:

No, you're weak, who cares what the pundits thought. They don't know where the teams had him, they don't know who had interest in him, as they said the pundits had Travis Frederick going later, they had Taco as a first rounder. That don't mean sh***. You can sit up here and think you know he would've been there, but you don't. That's the only fact in this conversation. Let that sink in

Interesting from a draft bio since it's all doom and gloom with this pick...

"could reward a Cover 3 press-man team with a Pro Bowl caliber player."

It was the single worst pick in the entire draft.

Now that can and probably will change if one of those QBs bust but as it stands today in terms of value none was worse than this. He's an UDFA with a build that doesn't work in the NFL.

Plus no one knows where he falls on the other 31 teams boards. I’ll give Quinn the benefit of the doubt in year 1 of building his defense. He knew what he wanted and went after it while everyone around here assumes scheme fit and talent on their own made up draft rankings without watching a down of college football or acknowledging that he’s the one putting it all together…

If this was his 8th year and the D still sucks, then we have a problem! I get having a favorite in the draft and seeing where they end up and how things turn out, but to whine about it at this level claiming they know better than the DC himself??? We all have an opinion but at the end of the day we don’t spend the time, money or resources that these teams do. And no one still has any idea how he’s going to run this D.
I guarantee no team had him higher than the 5th. We could’ve had a better player AND HIM later on. This franchise is batsheet crazy.

Fredsy was a completely different type of prospect and picking him is in no way comparable to this pick.

After all is said and done, I'm hoping Nahshon Wright turns out to be a very pleasant surprise to everyone.

I expect Dan Quinn Quinn and Will McClay saw something in him that most of us weren't privy to noticing!
