We needed a RB (after failing to find one in FA) and we drafted Slaton and Tate.
We needed a DB and we drafted Kareem and McMannis and when Kareem didn't have a good rookie season, we drafted Brandon Harris and Roc Carmichael.
We need a WR and we draft Posey and Martin.
I can't remember a year under this regime where they didn't draft someone to fill almost all (if not all) of the holes perceived that year going into the draft.
Give me an example where we drafted to fill all needs in one year.
