In response to rkarp's comment:
the DLmen that I have listed were not cherry picked. That list is EVERY DL that BB has drafted. So when you say BB is a great drafter of DL, he has hit on 3 DL in his 11 drafts...Seymour, Warren and Vince. Lastly, I did miss Jarvis Green, so I stand corrected
There you have it...11 draft years, 14 DL drafted, 4 good picks. You are correct, he is an expert!
Everyone huh, so if I find one person, Green
, that BB drafted that you didn't list, Deadrick
, that has given meaningful snaps, Jones
, and been productive for this team that you didn't list than you must have missed some
I already mentioned Green, that I missed him. Looking back on his career, it was kind of a let down. He really had 2 decent years with the Pats.
Deadrick the jury is still out with him. Same with Jones, who at the end of the day really is a rushing OLB similar to Ware.
You also seem to be changing your tune to BB being and "expert drafter of DL", to drafting DL who make the team. Simply because they make the team, doesnt make BB an expert.
I dont understand the mentality that BB walks on water on this board? The guy is a great coach. Maybe the best ever. The guy is a great talent evaluater. He can make non emotional personel decisions, manage the cap with the best (and gets internal help) and does find free agents that can play his scheme it seems on a yearly basis. But he does make mistakes. His free agent signings this year were horrible. His draft from 2006-2009 was horrible. Why is it criminal in some minds to point out that BB is human? The guy does have some misses on his record. It is ok to discuss his misses with out being a Jet fan, a troll or a BB hater.
I would love to see you explain how BB is an "expert drafter of DL". I would also love to see you defend the 06-09 draft years, and while you are at it, the 12 free agency signings. Then in your spare time, tell me how great Ocho is, and it was bRadys fault he sucked here.
I will now sit back and wait for Sully to tell me Sanchez comments as he usually does when I pummel him to submission
So, lets agree Seymour and Vince are great. Warren is average to above average. Green was kind of disappointing. BB has had 12 draft years. What other DL give reason to label him an "expert"
