We can`t fill all these holes in the draft. Not even close. We can count on 2-3 starters. 5 if weīre lucky. How many do we need? Iīd say about 10. I am not saying we should`ve signed 7 guys. I am saying we shouldīve tried to get some players that just got out of their rookie contract - players that still have 5 good years left in them. Not 7, but perhaps 2-3, just to make the draft easier and to minimize the holes we have.
They were 2-14, they aren't going to spend much money on players who won't be here long term, and would barely make an impact. You draft, then fill the remaining holes in FA.
