From the years 2006-2013 Kubiak has overseen the draft and made 63 picks. Of those picks he has drafted exactly 1 player from Texas A&M, that being Randy Bullock. In contrast he has drafted 4 players from Virginia Tech, 3 from Wisconsin, Bama, and Miami, and 2 from a myriad of schools including Colorado State, Rice, NC State and of course the University of Texas. Clearly he has little to no bias for school affiliation.

To add to that, go into the mock draft section of our board and look for posts about Bullock. Many people here were projecting him to be a late pick for us because he filled a need, and had an excellent collegiate career. There were no red flags about him.

Justin Tucker was an UDFA signing for the Ravens. 32 of 32 teams passed on him for whatever reason, maybe because he only started for 2 years at UT. I don't know, but it's not like it was some obvious fact that he was going to be the best kicker in the NFL.

So if you want to make the argument that school affiliation had something to do with this pick and why it went awry, you have a tough mountain to climb. It was clearly a bad pick on the organizations part, but given their track record, I don't see it as some outlier. It's just another mistake to add to the pile of dozens that we have witnessed under Smithiak.
Best post in years.

Me too, because Bullock was Joe's guy not Kubiak's.

And the week he missed 3 they were pushing him in practice to get to ball faster. Sounds like that would be better addressed in the offseason.

The next time you get home try walking to the door and putting the key in faster.

Before you blast me, I didn't like the pick either. But as Dutch said, at least frame your argument correctly.

many a fk up can be laid at the feet of bad coaching at the worst possible time

Two questions Ozzie Newsome always asks when a players name is brought up:

1) "How will he fit in our locker room?"
2) "Does he help us beat the Pittsburgh Steelers?"

Mack Brown gave him and Jerry Rossburg (ST coordinator) the ultimate endorsement- Hes kicked in front of 101,000 [people], hes played Oklahoma in the Cotton Bowl and played well, hes had the winning field goal at A&M, Brown said. He will not change his personality on Sunday or Monday night when hes playing for the Ravens. Hell be able to handle that pressure.

Throw in Blair Walsh and Greg Legatron Zuerlein as kickers we passed over to draft Fat Randy

This is a silly argument. The only guy rated equal to or above Bullock coming out was Blair Walsh.

I think this coaching staff has easily made bigger draft mistakes than this one. If Tucker doesn't make that 61 yarder this isn't even a thread right now.
