Maybe in the past not as much right now. But let's say you're right. Haven't we attempted to build our trenches for the last several years? All we have to show is mediocrity. Let's try something different. How about picking players that can score.
The big difference is that we switched blocking schemes on the O-line, which is IMHO part of the reason why we let Jake go. Trading for Branden makes me feel better about the draft, although part of me thinks that Signing Winston makes more sense. I just really hate this draft to be honest, I would love to trade back to 18-20 and draft Rhodes or Trufant, but I think every team picking early is thinking that. Crappy year to have a lot of picks.
