    No, I won't feel better about Keim. He has been dead last as a drafter and isn't doing much better on the free agent front. He's currently one of the worst GMs in the league, if not the worst. We currently have the NFL's second longest playoff drought.

    I'm not sure how people can continue to make excuses for him.

    People often make the case you can’t judge a draft class until a couple years out. Okay... out of the 2016, 2017, 2018 drafts, 20 players, we got ONE star and two middling starters.

    thats it. 3 players on the team from those 3 drafts. 2 of them are middling at best starters. Folks... that’s abysmal.

    Not for the first time, you haven't checked what I suggested before the "snark".

    Maybe you need to watch a little film. Your no football instincts is way off the charts.

    Those charts are horse crap. "Expectation"? what kind of metric is that, other than some douche's opinion? Outcome percentile? What's even being measured??

    Tell me then, what about Keim's drafts have in any way measured up to his peers? Did you read @cheesebeef's metrics?

    Why are people so vociferous about defending Keim? We haven't had a winning season in five years! We have a team built mainly off of one year rental guys 32 or older. It's maddening.

    I know, Elijah is the "other" Moore in my reference, Rondale gets most of the pub. I like Elijah a little more than Rondale.

    I think Williams is more of a big play threat than Johnson. Much bigger also, a true outside WR. He ran a 4.5 40 at his pro day so he is faster than Johnson as well.

    Parsons made plays when the defensive coordinator made calls that positioned him to make plays.

    I think you could draft Parsons and move him to Edge.

    Okay, but what metric do you have to offer that suggests that Keim is anything other than execrable in the War Room?

    Jack Anderson is a good call. Four year starter with good technique. I'm not sure I want a development guy though, just because we have shown we such at developing guys. When was the last time we took a raw lower round pick and turned them into a good starter?

    If were going to plug that last hole in the O line I think I'd want to do it with a quality pick.

    I like Chris Evans too but surely he's going to go undrafted. He has nice vision but he's just about to turn 24 and lost reps last year to other RB's.

    Good joke! The opposition coached to maximize what you consider a poor player's abilities? How unique an approach!

    Parsons is a beast.

    I'm not trading back if Micah Parsons is there at 16. A run-stuffing, good in coverage, monstrously huge quick linebackers are hard to find.

    Here is an additional thought. I believe either Kirk or Isabella, if not both, will be draft day trades.
