The combination of over drafting and then chopping and changing systems, like with Mitchell he’s not really a cover safety then maybe being asked to play in a two high which he’s not suited to then whilst he’s still young having a few systems a coordinators is a recipe for failure. He goes to Pittsburgh where they’ve had the same or similar system for ages and they know how to use him and he has a long and productive career, I really liked him too after we drafted him. Same with Arden Key really, apparently he said Paul Guenther told him not to rush certain ways and of course he was used as a base end when now with the Jags he’s a rotation rush specialist and getting production. I think we wanted him to put on mass too which was a mistake. Ferrell has been similar where he’s changed body mass a few times and been used in different ways and it’s a recipe for failure, though of course he was over drafted too. Ward I hated as a pick though he needed a system and development and whilst he was way over drafted we failed at developing him also. Shelby Harris has been a good player for years at an area of real weakness for us, as did Autry so we really missed on those two. To think we paid Justin Ellis and let Autry walk, smh. I think Autry is actually still under rated around league: https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/A/AutrDe00.htm We released Harris to make room on the roster for UDFAs https://www.silverandblackpride.com/platform/amp/2016/5/16/11685730/shelby-harris-says-hes-been-cut-by-oakland-raiders its bad enough we make those moves but then when you consider the reasoning or circumstances it’s way worse My boss has a saying… “don’t duck up a wet dream”. That’s what I think of when looking at our FO. Edited January 8 by jimkelly02 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
