    Given that most of us do a bunch of mocks, we're bound to be right on some guy somewhere. If Colbert posted mock drafts like we do and discussed with us what he thought about different players, he'd look like a genius and make us all look like dummies.

    Plus for me personally, I usually just watch highlights of as many players as I can, but the real pros watch every play of these college guys. Sometimes I'll see a team multiple times and a certain guy will stand out. But how the heck do you compare them to other guys playing in a zillion other games?

    Plus we benefit from the guys connected to the pros that find out who teams like and that helps us zero in on who to consider. So it's like the NFL gives us a bit of a boost telling us which players to go look at and decide from. It's not like any of us know about this athletic freak from Samford College.

    Why? We lost both Will Allen and Ryan Mundy this offseason, so there was little-to-no depth (only the likes of Robert Golden and Da'Mon Cromartie-Smith) behind the oft-injured Troy Polamalu and Ryan Clark. And since both Clark and Troy are both aging, I thought we could use a heat-seeking missile type to be our future at strong safety (Shamarko Thomas) as well as a ball-hawking centerfielder type to be our future at free safety (Philip Thomas). Since we had the tendency to double-down on positions of need in recent years, and the relative strength of the safety position in the 2013 draft (certainly much better when compared to the poor depth at safety in the 2012 draft...very little behind Mark Barron and Harrison Smith), I thought back-to-back safety picks in the 4th round would have made a ton of sense.

    who would you have chosen instead?

    The Landry Jones pick is most likely going to be boom or bust.... If Ben stays healthy for the next 5 plus years, then i would say it is a bust. If Ben goes down (as he often does), maybe the kid steps in (Like a Russell Wilson or Kirk Cousins) and proves that he is the next Franchise QB of the black and gold.

    He's a frickin' fourth round pick...

    If you can get any production out of a day three pick, you've done well...

    I agree, anyone who thinks selecting Landry Jones in the 4th round was a huge mistake is well, mistaken.

    first off, it's only a 4th round pick and like you said if you get any production out of Jones it's merely a bonus. also, there's absolutely no guarantee that the guy you would have selected instead of Jones would ever produce let alone be on the team in a few years.

    I hope we don't get spit for production from Landry Jones for the next 6-7 years UNLESS we are winning games 66-0. I HOPE he collects awesome paychecks for just sitting and watching games.

    I agree, Landry Jones has all the tools to be an effective if not elite QB in the NFL. He is smart, tall, has a strong arm, accurate and productive. He can make all the throws. The knock is on his desire.
