Arguably our best draft since the greatest of all time back in 1974.
    That was a good draft;What about that Jarvis Jones draft?

    That was an awful draft overall for the league. There were probably about a dozen or so busts taken in the top half of that first round. We still ended up with arguably the most talented player in that draft in round 2 when we took Le'Veon Bell after Jarvis.
    Trade 1.20, 3.66, 5.141, & a 3rd round pick in 2020 to BUF for 1.9

    1.9 ILB Devin White
    2.52 WR Kelvin Harmon
    3.83 OLB Chase Winovich
    4.122 TE Josh Oliver
    6.175 FS Marquis Blair
    6.192 RB Travis Homer
    6.207 OG Hjalte Froholdt
    7.219 DE Armon Watts

    or

    Trade 2.52, 3.66, 3.83, & 5.141 to SEA for 1.21 & 4.124

    1.20 TE T.J. Hockenson
    1.21 ILB Devin Bush
    4.122 OLB Christian Miller
    4.124 WR David Sills

    See? using what the rest of the league did/or doesn't do as a barometer for our lack of success. I don't subscribe to that. I don't care what the Bengals, Cardinals, Bucs or any of those cornball teams do. They don't justify what we do or don't do.

    What about the Sean Davis/Artie Burns draft?

    I don't personally have a problem with Colbert and Co. in the drafting department. Scouting is a crap shoot. Overall they have done well. With that said, their ability to find and develop secondary talent is horrific. Whatever they need to do, probably get a new set of eyes on film in their scouting department. They should do.

    Probably so. But, I see no signs of AB slowing down unless he lands with a ish QB. He rarely misses games, trains like a freak. I see him going another 8 hard if he wishes. I mean Jerry put up all those numbers over 19 seasons. I think AB can do it in 16.

    AB ain’t Jerry Rice; not the same athlete. And Rice had Montana, Young and Rich Gannon during his hot period throwing to him.

    Just because he’s faster doesn’t make him a better athelete or wide receiver. Dude do you know who jerry Rice got his workout regiment from? I’m going to stop; I keep forgetting most of you were in the crib when Jerry played.
