    I love the Kyler Murray pick. I think he will be electric and will be an amazing player. However, we got major problems.

    We already know the history of Steve Keim and the draft. To be fair, every team swings and misses to an extent. First round busts are pretty common league-wide, and what makes ours worse are the fact that we focus on ours because they are our team. The swings and misses have hurt us though. No one can deny that.

    The pick of Kyler on its own, does not concern me. What is alarming is the process and how they allegedly didn't start fielding offers for Rosen until right before the pick was made. They played chicken with the Rosen asset and whiffed badly. It really makes no sense. If Murray was the guy they could have announced it weeks ago and let it be known Rosen was on the block. It would have given everyone involved the time to make a good deal. Now they are screwed.

    Teams panic every year and reach for QBs in the draft. There are far more Paxton Lynch picks than Peyton Mannings. It also now appears the Rosen pick was a typical panic move.

    The last bit of concern goes back to the way Arians left. Who is calling the shots? In order to diagnose a problem you have to know the root cause. Is it the GM? My biggest fear is that it is higher up the flag pole. I really hope that is not the case.

    Yesterday should have been a celebration yet it kind of feels like a loss.

    Well put. I feel the exact same way. If the 2nd from the Patriots rumor was true, I'm sure they are laughing at us right now because I'm sure their offer is now a 3rd.

    Add in the fact they really coveted Harry and couldn't manage a trade up to get a guy they really wanted. I feel like Keim was simply not prepared for this draft.

    Belichick wanted Harry too. Why would he give up on the pick? Brady finally has his first big wideout since Moss.

    The Pats picked Harry one spot ahead of us. I dont think anybody saw that coming? Harry wasnt even in the top list of 1st rd players remaining. Hardly kiems fault.

    The point being if you really want a guy you don't rely on other teams doing what you expect them to do. You go get the guy you desire. Then it makes what NE is doing irrelevant. NE always needs WRs...like every year.

    Sure didn't help bringing him in to the facility just before the draft (for yet another look) and then having Fitz publicly gushing about him and quoting another Cardinals staffer who was comparing N'Keal Harry to Anquan Boldin. The team basically told everyone who would listen that they were taking him with their second draft pick. We pretty much suck at subterfuge. SMH.

    I suppose. Ha. It always seems to bite them in the ass every year missing their guy by one pick.

    That's not as easy as it sounds. Part of why you like a player is value related. And it's a thin line between reaching for a player and grabbing the guy you want.

    The sports media is every bit as moronic as the mainstream media. Stop listening to their nonsense & wait until this all pans out.

    Heavens guy this goes all the back to when Coryell left in the 70s that was he had absolutely No say in the drafting of players seems like he did pretty damn good when he moved in to San Diego I actually Think Rosen Does the same while the Midget is gone after Next year in yet another front office and coach cleansing Process

    Yep. According to some draft experts, Drew Lock was essentially a, well, lock at 32 to NE. Something tells me that NE will still end up with Lock and we just might be the pigeons to deal with to get him.
