    "Building through the draft" might be the most overused phrase on FH now. Everybody "builds through the draft," even those most active in FA. You can sign a FA and STILL "build through the draft," especially when, as you pointed out, you have 9 picks.

    That being said, hopefully we don't go with "draft crap WRs in bulk at the end of the draft" strategy again...

    truth. Not to mention we have a ton of cap room we basically must spend. I'm not dead set on Wallace, but we must add quality starters via FA (eg Levitre, Vollmer, Avril etc). I'm soured on Jennings considering the injury history. If not Wallace, go all out WR in early rounds (Patterson, Austin, Allen, Hunter, Hopkins, Swope etc).

    Ill trust Philbins judgment though as I did last year on Flynn.

    I do think that the timing of this, just after the Packers leaked that they are thinking about using the franchise tag on Jennings, is definitely deliberate. Mind games.

    Yes and no, teams like Washington had absolutely no success through free agency and during that same time had a lot of poor drafts as well. Since they've focused more on the draft they've become very good at it; Brian Orakpo, Ryan Kerrigan, RG3, Alford, Trent Williams.

    Most teams who focus more on free agency, maybe it's coincidence, but they tend to be rather poor drafting teams. Even a traditionally good drafting team like the Eagles have seen their drafting take a huge hit in recent years as they focused more on free agency (though my boy Brandon Graham graded out really well coming off ACL surgery)

    The best teams in free agency just pick and choose.

    Yep. This reminds me of those fervent denials just days before the last draft when the Jaguars were saying very publicly "Hey, if you want Ryan Tannehill, we pick right before Miami, come and get it" and Dolphins insisted that it was ridiculous that the team had made up its mind from the top down to draft Ryan Tannehill, blah blah blah.

    Protesting too much, and such.
