Those are 3 pre-draft phrases that have become pretty cliche’ over the past decade or so…
Are there any clear “generational talents” in the draft? I would guess Sewell might be the closest thing. I don’t see a Julius Peppers, Sean Taylor, Calvin Johnson, John Ogden, Adrian Peterson type guy in this class. Micah Parsons for example has shorter arms, did less bench reps, had 4/5” lesser vertical and far less experience in a traditional off ball role thus requiring teams to “project him” in coverage vs having a lot of film.
What is a scheme fit? In Quinn’s case it was moronic, as he let Patricia dictate the need for as many “un-athletic” players as possible. Whereas a more competent team might look player traits such as QB mobility to discern who might better execute the desired offense.
Draft capital- AKA- MAGIC BEANS!!! Teams are throwing 2022 and 2023 first rounders out like bad produce these days. Draft picks might be lottery tickets, or magic beans, but they are also the foundation of good teams. The more draft picks that make your team, the more impact players you can afford to pay long term.
Think about this… guys like CJ Mosley, A Barr, A Hitchens, J Collins- we are talking about 80-100 tackle with 1-2 sacks and 0-1 interceptions a year guys making 9-12M a year!!! Off the ball lbers who make few impact plays making massive money.
