Ok I got to thinking about Sean Smith's lack of interceptions and decided for ****s and giggles to review the parcels then ireland draft era. I remember briefly someone saying Jake was the lone survivor of the 2008 draft, a draft that by all rights was completely a parcels' draft. Then 2009 etc, and i'm wondering if 2009 is going to look like the 2008 next year. Is is possible that vonte is the lone survivor of the 2009 draft? How horrendous has our drafting been just in the last 4 years? Has it gotten better?
