TD has a history of taking reaching for bad players ... I.e. Duke Riley, Desmond Southward, Akeem Dent, Lamar Holmes, Mike Johnson. 

So basically our 3rd round picks suck? Lol

Yeah he’s had a rough couple of years recently. But trading a bad player for a potentially somewhat decent player doesn’t do any harm. 

Sounds like ACL year before last, couldn't beat out Sendejo in Philly.  Kinda feels like bad for bad, and at least Riley gave value on ST...will give Cyprien a chance but kinda meh on this.

Lindstrom and McGary both reaches by all draft Guru's. 

1) There are no draft "guru's"

2) It's been pretty much reported as fact that the teams immediately after those picks were about to draft those players

TD had missed more than he has hit. When it comes to the first 3 rounds, TD has been below average with getting it right.

Did Duke ever do anything on STs? Honestly don’t remember him ever making a play. Maybe one last year.

Every GM has misses. But yeah Lamar Holmes was the biggest head scratcher of them all.

That can be said about most GMs though. Even Ozzie Newsomes, who people always applaud, final few drafts were largely misses from what I recall. But yeah our third round picks have been especially bad. Hooper and Teco are the only good ones I think we’ve had in the past decade.

Yeah teams at least 10 picks down the road. Bottomline it was a reach just like Duke Riley.

This is literally all GMs in the league.

Hit rate by position :

3rd Round - OL (40%) TE (39%) LB (34%) DL (27%) WR (25%) DB (24%) QB (17%) RB (16%)

Define "anything" lol...he was ok...better ST'er than LB'er for sure...but that's a bar low enough to trip over.

I do like Cyprien though, also known for missing tackles. 

He'll fit right in with this group then.

Next up to up our picks next year: Beasley, Crawford, Clayborn, (possibly) Sanu, and fingers crossed some dopes would take Freeman off our hands.

Think you should revisit those trade details, friend.

Nah, he's giving you facts that you don't want. Every GM has their shortcomings. TDs is the lines. How many teams around the league would love our offense? I'd say at least 90 percent.

Don't be a jabroni.
