Good to see people have come around since then because I got ripped for it. Dislike picks 2/3 but other than that solid effort.
I think it's because nobody really likes Allen as a prospect. Guy has gone from a fringe 1st rounder to a 2nd-3rd round guy in a matter of 2 months. Fleener is a far superior prospect.
Also, Dreessen was still an UFA at the time and I'm sure everyone was holding out hope that he'd re-sign.
