In response to mthurl's comment:
Truechamp! Can I play in the game "who have the Ravens drafted that is good"?
Arthur Jones - very good 300 pound defensive tackle...those guys don't grow on trees. 5th round
Dennis Pitta - one of the better tightends in football. 4th round
Ed Dickson - solid tight end averaging 25-50 catches a year.3rd round
Tyrod Taylor - backup QB who has done as much as Mallett (who rusty thinks is worth a 7th overrall pick) 6th round...imagine that?
Pernell McPhee - 6th round defensive lineman who got 6 sacks two years ago - you would probably put him in the hall of fame next to BJGE!
Torrey Smith - explosive wide receiver...even you heard of this guy, right? 2nd round pick. If you haven't heard of him just try to imagine McCourty...now imagine this guy running by him like he is standing still for a touchdown.
Jimmy Smith - starting corner - yeah he's pretty good - hasn't had to make the switch to safety yet. 1st round
Bernard Pierce - running back. Let's just say if he was here you wouldn't be talking about BJGE. 3rd round
Kelechi Osemele - guard. Started every game for the defending Super Bowl Ravens. 2nd round. will miss Sunday's game for back surgery and will be sidelined for 3 months
Matt Elam - safety...looks promising. 1st round
Now there are also another 10 guys still on their roster or in the NFL. I also didn't go beyond their first round selection in this year's draft class, but there are 6 of them on their roster and four of them are regular contributers. Now I'm not a Raven's fan, so I can't sit here and tell you every little thing about these players, but I can tell you most of them are regular contributers and all of them have SUPER BOWL RINGS.
Sorry bud, I guess you didn't read the thread. Babe has once again put stipulations on his argument that BB is a bad GM. We can only look at the rounds 1-3 and we are looking for "great picks". By Babes definition Rob Gronkowski, you know, the guy who caught more tds then any player in history his 1st 3 years, is NOT a great pick in the 2nd round, neither is Mayo, former ROY and team captain who leads his team in tackles every year, neither are Ridley or Vareen.....oh but Bernard Pierce is?!?!
Mccourty? No, that guy sucks, when you have an agenda to push, but to the rest of the free world he is a very good safety. Volmer. ?..nope, Solder, uh uh, chandler, Hightower, Dobson, Collins? Anyway, the point is, if Gronk, and Mayo don't make the cut as great picks then nobody you put on your list would either.
Wait....BERNARD PIERCE would make us forget about BJGE? Do you realize how foolish that makes you look? i guess when you have some sort of vendetta against BB, you say dumb things like Bernard pierce is a great pick in the 3rd round but Ridley amd Vareen are not.
But let's just compare his numbers to our ex undrafted FA BJGE who has 4,000 yards, 42 tds and a 3.9 ypc average, while Pierce the great 3rd round pick you mentioned is a leader in the industry with 950 yards a 3.7 ypc and is a red zone monster with, count em, THREE TDS!
Oh but thats right, a running backs ability to punch the ball in the end zone has no bearing on how good he is, only yards per carry are important...at least when you have to back up your asinine assertion that BJGE sucked.. lol.
You've both been sucker punched in the bean bag with your argument.
