Default Why does everybody think Wade is such a great drafter?

I have seen a lot of blind support for him. Is hs record that good at drafting? Not causing trouble, just wondering if there is a basis for it.

Default Re: Why does everybody think Wade is such a great drafter?

I think its because most feel he knows what kind of players find his defensive system. We know Kubes/Smith have no clue about drafting defense. Smith said right after the hire I have never worked with the 3-4 so we will lean on Wade's expertise a lot when drafting defense.

He has been credited with drafting some good players in San Diego and Dallas. I don't know if all of these guys are all Wade picks or what is actually going on in the draft room so we'll see.

Why does everybody think Wade is such a great drafter? - because we've been watching Casserly and Smith draft for all these years.

Honestly he doesn't have a great track record but under Jerry who knows who was pulling the strings. Parcells got Ware and some of the others. He did get some good guys overall but I don't consider him a great drafter or close to it. BUT he knows more than Kubes and Smith combined I'm betting.

He has a scheme and finds the players that fit it.

The previous jokers didn't have a clue.

He's the son of Bum!!!

He is credited with picking Spears which is a decent player for Dallas (I'm sure you know), and he was supposedly the one who wanted Merriman, who was a monster for like 2 years before steroids.

Default Re: Why does everybody think Wade is such a great drafter?

Because everyone hates on Kubiak and Smith and they like these picks so they can't be from Kubiak and Smith.

Now this could be right or wrong, but that is probably the reason.

Default Re: Why does everybody think Wade is such a great drafter?

It's mostly because we've picked defensive players who fill gaps in our defense and we all know how wonderful our defense was last year. People are just happy that we seem to be picking hard working effort guys who are not that risky. I think Watt and Reed have a chance to make an impact on our defense early.

Default Re: Why does everybody think Wade is such a great drafter?

JJ Watt may beat out Smith this year and be replacement for Mario as this is his last contract year. 10 year starter.

Brooks Reed Starting OLB that should be extremely successful and will rotate with Barwin putting opponent QB in fear of their life.

Brandon Harris pure cover corner that will start either #1, 2 or slot and is now the #1 CB on team imo.

Well, there you go.

I think it's because deep down, we all don't want Rick Smith making any decisions and we cling to any shred of evidence that he just might not be.

Default Re: Why does everybody think Wade is such a great drafter?

I don't know if this is due to Wade Phillips or not, but it doesn't appear that we are reaching on players because of thier potential talent. These guys look like football players.

Connor Barwin is a good example. Connor was a walkon at Cinci and started out as a TE. Then he was switched to DE and played three different position in college and we took him in the second round. Essentially, we took potential and not a finished player.

All of these guys appear to be more of a finished product. They all look like players who can help us right away and not someone we have to coach up first.

- JJ Watt was a DE for two years and a Ted Hendricks award finalist.
- During his college career at the University of Arizona, Reed recorded 104 tackles and 17 sacks.
- Brandon Harris started all four years at Miami and finished his career with 32 starts in 39 games, 129 tackles and three interceptions.

Spears was 05 so it wasn't Wade but he did get Spencer and Jenkins, and Scandrich. But overall no studs.

Agreed.

Just like Kubiak will get guys for his system Wade is doing the same. I like this relationship so far. As long as Kubes delegates that said of the field to Wade I think this can work out well. We pretty much have two coordinators but IMO we have two of the best coordinators around and if we can get them to work together this could be a very good thing.

Now if only we could get Kubiak to not get cute with his playcalling...

Pretty much this...

This draft just has a different feel to it...

Seems like in the past we've drafted guys that had a lot of question marks about different things...Work ethic, adjustment to the NFL, whether or not their game qould translate...ect

Seems like now we are picking guys that we have a good idea of what they are going to look like. Of course we don't really know what the results of all this will be, but there is no question about these guys ability or desire when it comes to playing...

Plus they have the production/numbers to back up their abilities...

Whether or not Wade is mainly running the show or not I don't know...But I do know that they have drafted a bit differently...

I don't think or know that Wade is a great drafter. He really did not have much personnel say in Dallas as compared to most head coaches. My hope is that in lifetime of being around football and the fact that he has put togehter real NFL defenses gives us a better chance at recognizing and utilizing talent better.

More hope than proof.
