Lets do a little math. In the first six rounds there will be 192 players taken. Now do we have any guesses on how many players are out there in the college ranks? We have 4 picks in the 7th round. Now Wankerhawk may take this as me saying I expect a starter or two from this group and that would be wrong,(suprise!). As Nighthawk2 and others have pointed out, there can be gold found in them thar hills, but like gold it is rare. My point is we have 4 times the chance to find gold with 4 picks in that last round. The odds are not good, but the point is there are odds. I would like to also say that we need to have a strong group on our practice squad as well to make it through the season and develop for the long haul.
I pray our 4th pick overall is a kickass selection, but even top rated tallent can blowup. I remember a LB from Okalhoma, Bozworthless, that has to be the biggest bust in our teams history. The bottom line is the FO has to do a great job sifting through the info and pick the true players.
