I want to be optimistic about the new regime, but Rick Smith does not give me the confidence to have much faith in his skills as a GM.
Maybe a reference point would help. Same drafts:
Patriots: 4 players in the league, 2 with Patriots, 1 starter.
Colts: 6 players in league, 0 with Colts.
Pittsburgh: 7 players in league, 4 still with Steelers (two after stints with other teams), 2 starters.
Ravens: 7 players in league, 3 still with Ravens, 3 starters.
