Heres a rundown of who we've drafted at skill positions and where...

 

2018

4th: Herndon (TE): probably the most optimistic pick on this list. But I'll hardly announce him as a success after just 1 season (same as you cant say a guy's a failure after 1 season(.

6th: Cannon (RB): Don't even see him on the team maybe this year or in the next couple seasons.

2017

3rd: Stewart (WR): already cut from the team.

3rd: Hanson (WR): already cut from the team.

5th: Leggett (TE): already down on the depth chart and hasn't done much.

6th: McGuire (RB): nothing special at all. Pretty much had the starting RB role the last 4 weeks and didn't impress me at all. Depth RB at best.

2016

7th: Peake (WR): cant even play WR for us when we lack talent there and is always injured. Luckily he holds ST value.

UDFA: Anderson (WR): I don't want to keep him out bc he's a crucial player for us. But he is a 1 trick pony that there's for a spot for on our roster, but he's never going to be this well rounded great WR. Also carried a ton of off the field issues that can get him kicked out of the NFL at anytime (hence why he was an UDFA who runs a 4.3)

2015

2nd: Smith (WR): the highest pick we had used on a WR since 2001. Obviously he was a failed pick due to injuries. Not even on the team.

2014

2nd: Amaro (TE): I'm a TTU fan and didn't like this pick. Not bc I didn't like Amaro, but bc of the WRs that were still on the board (Adams, AR15, Landry). Amaro is a reason I'm also not ready to anoint Herndon as a success yet... bc he had similar stats as Herndon as a rookie and was cut shortly after.

4th: Saunders (WR): was a bad pick and wasn't good for us and cut quickly.

4th: Evans (WR): was a bad pick and wasn't good for us and cut quickly.

6th: Enunwa (WR): one of our biggest success picks at skill. But I for 1 think he is highly overrated on this forum. His last 2 seasons were him missing a whole season and playing 11/16 games this season. And in this last season didn't even reach 500yds and only had 1 TD.

2013

7th: Bohanon (FB): was a late round FB/RB that never amounted to much for us.

2012:

2nd: Hill (WR): never liked this pick bc of a guy named Alshon Jeffrey that was still on the board. Hill couldn't stay healthy and we over drafted him bc he was a combine warrior and we thought we were getting the next good GT WR. Which never happened.

6th Ganaway (RB): Who? Exactly.

7th: White (WR): Who? Exactly again.

 

This list shows that in the last 7 drafts (so what should be the foundation of this roster) we've never chose a skill position player in Round 1. We drafted 3 guys in Round 2 (Smith, Amaro, Hill) who were all cut within 2-3 seasons of being with the team. In Round 3 we've never drafted a good player. In Round 4 our only shot at calling that a success is Herndon (which is tbd). Round 5 we've never got anyone good. Round 6 we've added decent guys in Enunwa and McGuire but far from guys needing to make an impact. And Round 7 we've added nothing of value. Robby I'll throw in as a UDFA... and he has a skill set that I like, just wont ever be more than a deep threat.

 

 

Why did you leave off Darnold?

Bc I’m not including QBs. I left agent and Petty out as well. I’m talking about RBs, WRs and TEs. I thought about adding OL as well... bc we’ve been awful drafting there as well.

Our drafting has been pretty awful in general.  I miss the Mangini days minus Gholston but he had to be the pick.

Macagnan has been the absolute worst drafter we have ever had. He has to knock this draft out of the park or he needs to be sent packing.

Here is the crazy part, if he fails and gets fired next offseason. The next GM will have to deal with Gase and could fire him or put him on the hot seat early. Macc has to put talent around Darnold and add players that fit the 43 now. We still don't know what Gase really need for his team to work. We put up more yards and PPG than the Dolphins did last year. 

With Macc feeling this pressure, he's going to make the big splash moves. We just have to see if he pulls in the right people and if Gase is a good coach.  So much is on the line.
