    Doom and Gloom, The drafts have been pretty solid..We will see how many will last,but the D is def much improved..The influx of young talent has helped.

    The only draft pick that made you go WTF was Pat White..

    Picking Turner and Hartline early, as most called it reaches was understandable cause we had no decent WR's

    Hartline has been pretty good..Turner was a complete bust..You dont expect that from someone who was a 3rd rounder and most thought he was going to be picked in the 4th or 5 round..

    All you have to do is look at the 1st pick they've ever made. Im now 100% confident that Long over Ryan was a huge mistake. If it wasn't for Penny being released by the POS Jets we'd probably go 5-11 in 2008 with Josh McClown starting at QB.

    #1...Jake Long-a stud but not a franchise QB
    #32..Phil Merling UNDERACHIEVER for draft position
    #57..Chad Henne...not the answer
    #66...Kendall Langford...very good value
    #110...Shawn Murphy...excuse me while I vomit into my mouth
    #195...Donald Thomas...We hardly knew you...adios
    #204...Lex Hilliard...special teams and that's it
    #245...Lionel Dotson...3 years...3 games this season...2 tackles...enough said

    Langford and Long are the only two quality players in this draft

    Coming off a 1-15 season with the #1 pick
    we should have done much better with this draft

    2009
    #25...Vontae Davis...future star but could have had Clay Matthews
    #44... Pat White...blown pick is the best that can be said regarding this pick
    #61...Sean Smith...another pick that could go either way
    #87...Pat Turner...wow, were they wrong
    #108...Brian Hartline...our #2 wide out would be a #4 with most teams(decent value)
    #161...John Nalbone...An APB is needed to find out where he is playing today
    #166...Chris Clemons...has looked good and bad at times,ythe jury is still out on Clemons
    #181...Andrew Gardner...another offensive lineman who is gone
    #214...JD Folsum...gone bye bye

    Second draft by this regime with Davis as a future star
    Hartline,Smith,and Clemons decent and the rest are turds

    2010
    #28...Jared Odrick...may be good but another defensive player while ignoring the offense
    #40...Koa Misi...may be good but another defensive player while ignoring the offense
    #73...John Jerry...could become another Donald Thomas or....
    #119...A.J. Edds...injured but any player who has the potential to get Crowder off the field A++++
    #145...Nolan Carroll..who knows what he will turn into
    #163...Reshad Jones...same as above
    #212...Chris McCoy...bye bye
    #252...Austin Spitler...1 tackle in the past 5 games

    JUST LOOK AT HOW MANY PLAYMAKERS WE HAVE DRAFTED ON THE OFFENSIVE SIDE OF THE BALL

    Long-Jerry-Hartline-Henne
    or
    Murphy-White-Turner-Nalbone-Gardner

    "Fantastic group" of offensive playmakers drafted by this regime...

    As someone who wants Sparano and Henne out I have to say that I really don't think the drafts have been that bad. Compare these drafts to what we had the previous 5 years before Parcells and Ireland. As someone mentioned, the defense has been totally rebuilt. There were a few misses, but if you look at other team's drafts I'm betting that they aren't much better in rounds 4+. We have landed a lot of good players late and as FAs (Wake, Carpenter, Bess, Hartline, Carroll, Jones, Clemons) that have really contributed to the team. Are they all superstars? No. But in past regimes we got nothing of value late.

    Picked up some decent guys overall, but picking up a franchise QB is the most vital aspect for any new regime and unfortunately this regime did not hit on one.

    We rebuilt the defense in 3 years . . . Incredible job.

    Where we failed was with the OLine picks. The failure on the OLine is even more disappointing than the job done to the defense. Not only dont we have reliable starters . . . we dont have reliable depth. We haven't addressed the RB position . . . we haven't addressed the TE position . . . we look for hailmary's at WR and they don't pan out. Where we truly blew it was in 2009 . . . we should have been able to fix the defense then, instead of drafting 2 projects in the 2nd and 3rd round. Then in 2010 . . . we could have gotten a WR and a RB.

    Oh well, it is spilt milk and we gotta move on with a new OC and maybe a new coach.

    Actually, I think they have done a good job in acquiring talent and building a young core. It is too easy to sit and judge missed pick, but the reality is EVERY team misses picks every year in the draft. Also, to only look at the draft with out looking at FA and trades is not understanding the context of building the team. Also, re-signing players from former regimes is important. We are much, much better off with the core intact than what was in place only three years ago.
