Regardless of who Buddy picks tonight,I believe, he will have made the right decision. Whether it's justified by who was pick ahead of us or if it's justified by who wasn't picked ahead of us, it will be the right decision. It will be the right decision because very very rarely do NFL calibre GMs screw up a pick this high. I know it has happened, We've all seen it with Ryan Leaf to Akili Smith to Tony Mandarich. But at that point and time when that NFL GM made the decision to draft the player it was the right decision to be made. Buddy could screw it up if he had # 1. Because you have your choice of anyone on the board and if you make a mistake there you will hear about it for year after year to the point where it Will almost define your career, but because we have # 3 I don't see how he could screw it up.
I will say this however, What happens Friday and Saturday to me at least is alot more relevant to this draft meaning so much. Buddy absolutely has to hit on # 34, #68 and #100. These picks mean so much to the roster. He talked at lengths in every interview he had about building depthon this football team, and to me, you cannot build depth if your cutting your 3rd and 4th round picks. Buddy absolutely has to get players that can come in and contribute right away with his 2nd 3rd and 4th round picks. We gave up one of our only pro bowlers on the roster for a 4th rounder, We have to get at least a marginal starter with that pick.
I've seen it listed everywhere that this team take a developmental QB with #34, I could not disagree more, if were taking a QB it better be at #3 because we do not have the luxury of picking a developmental player @ 34 we need a contributor, we need a stud we need a player that can play and can play right away. We have way to many deficiencies to selecting developmental prospects that early.
So Buddy, Well I truly care about what happens tonight, You better for your sake and for the fans sake make those later picks count, ESPECIALLY if your going to take a QB @ #3. This team was in trusted in your expierenced hands to be turned around, we cannot afford anymore Ed Wangs and Kyle Calloways, we need more David Nelsons and Arthur Moats.
