I just dont understand everyones excitement over this draft... If we were a team like the redskins that desperately wanted to rebuild and needed depth across the board this would be legendary... but we arent. We are a team that not only did not need 13 players but we are a team that cant even fit that many on the roster. 

The object of most of your affection... Brandon Graham, is just lost on me. I mentioned Jerome McDougle in the nickname (because we had to trade up to get him) but I think mike mamula is a much more fitting comparison. Big difference is Mike earned his millions at the combine, while Graham earned his beating up 7th round left tackles at the senior bowl. Boy I hope I am wrong but I just dont see the ceiling you would hope for from a #12 overall pick. 

Our offense looked good last year but we still needed to make some moves in order to take the pressure off Kolb and to put him in a position to succeed... what have we done?? Picked up another teams 3rd string RB and a 5th round WR?? We put more effort into making a backup plan for him than we did to actually help him. Until I see how mccoy plays with this added bulk I would put our rushing game at the bottom of the NFC East and the bottom third of the league.

You guys keep on claiming the theme of this years draft is "high motor"... I see "low risk, low reward". We are a team that was arguably a big player or two from being as good as we have ever been. In a draft where we needed to go after one superstar we picked up a hand full of role players. I Dont think we have picked up anyone that will make much an impact long term nevertheless next year.
