Re: 09 Mock Draft
Unfortunately BM will not allow our team to take chances on these type of players.
It's our loss in my opinion
I really liked Gaither alot but knew we wouldn't get him.
To think that we weren't willing to take a chance on a potential franchise LT for the cost of a 2008 5th rd. pick & he could have gotten seasoning during the 2007 season.
It also would have eliminated the need to take D. Brown in the 1st rd.
It is McNairs unwillingness to take chances that has led us to 0 playoff games.
The Smithiak regime has done a great job considering the personel (drafting & FA) constraints that BM has given them. (Character issues are not allowed no matter how minor thy may have been or when they occured).
This would be fine if the rest of the NFL played the personel game the same way but they dont & we miss out on some great players.
Okam was our 5th rd. pick. (What a shame)
