But also, he has his hands full right now evaluating our current personnel.
AND... he'd never say anything that would give anyone a clue of what he really thinks anyway.

Also, determine your own draft criteria with input of coaches, scouts and the GM.
Then determine which of the available draft picks meets your criteria. I'm sure the scouts are already working, but the head coach has more pressing priorities right now. I'd love both Crenel and Munchak to be in a position to join the staff. Crenel is likely and Munchak merely possible. But that would be an all-star staff which I hope could work together smoothly. (Please - No more Ryan/Gilbride.)
As posters, we get ahead of ourselves at times.
Good posts guys. I for one got ahead of myself, I read his post and started crying chicken little. You guys are right, lets get the right personel first then we can focus on the draft in a couple of months.
