If we draft one, they are still going to start Davis and McKenzie and never really use the rookie. It's going to be tough for a rookie to come in and unseat Gabe Davis and we will continue to watch him drop passes. One of the major issues with the franchise is its unwillingness to play rookies and their blind faith/devotion to mediocre vets. That has to change, otherwise they will be held back from putting the most talent on the field. It has stunted the growth of DL like Epensa, Rousseau and Basham, as well as Oliver. Cook is one of the most explosive players on the team, and he spent a lot of time on the bench. Heck hey started Nate Peterman over Josh. It's why they lost Teller, it's why they lost Hodgins, it's why Shakir wasn't ready to make that big play in the playoffs. Draft these guys and let them play. I disagree with this team not playing rookies over vets. White, Dawkins, Allen, Edmunds, Oliver, Moss and Rousseau started pretty much from day 1. The problem I have with the staff is sticking with underperforming players too long in the starting lineup based on how comfortable they are with them. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
