He was almost certain they'd take Bender if he was there at #4.
I do remember an awful lot of talk about Chriss. So much so that I scouted some extra film on him last year just to get a firmer take on him. I must have been hearing it from Gambo. There was almost zero chance of him being there at #13. They would've taken him at #4 but wisely targeted him at #8 and traded up to get him.
Gambo has a lot of short comings, but one thing he seems to nail is who our teams like in the draft. He's almost too good for our own good as other teams are probably keying in on what he's saying and using it against us (see 2017 NFL draft).
Edit: I'm new here, so can someone please explain to me why Goran Dragic is the player in the upper right hand corner of this page. It's been 2 1/2 years.
Thank you for that. I was curious how he was with the draft, I know he's ok with free agency but it seems like he's been out of the loop on trades since McD has been the GM.
As for the Dragic thing, your guess is as good as anyones regarding while he's still up there.
