Unfortunately these 2 writers are not alone is panning the Packers' draft this year. Almost every article out there grading this draft parrots this line of thinking. it is ALL about not drafting what they thought was our #1 need is = WR.
And DL and ignoring OT & ILB until day 3.
And drafted a QB that had trouble against poor competition, is slow to make throws, is a poor decision maker, throws way to many picks that ARE
his fault, And don't give me he had a bad team BS he played against equally bad teams and stunk he's a project who could be good eventually but the odds are better he's Kizer 2.0.
AJ Dillon against his best competition Virginia tech, Clemson and Notre Dame he never topped 100 yards rushing or 4.0 YPC.
In his entire 3 year college career he has under 250 receiving yards.
He also has a ton of tread on his tires and will likely be the #3 guy on the depth chart behind both Jamaal and Jones.
I actually don't hate the guy but he should have been a 5th or 6th round pick and likely would have been if we don't reach on him.
Josiah Deguara is probably the best of the first three picks but positional value means there is very little chance of him being worth that high of a pick because if he's anything short of Juszczyk we won't have gotten good value, at the same pick Niang was available and comparatively his odds of having a impact are much better.
No 4th round pick because we traded up for a project player.
5th round pick I don't really have a problem with though he is injury prone so naturally that will influence other opinions.
6th round don't hate any of the picks but don't love any either and KJ hill was available who most saw as a round 3 or 4 player.
7th round I like both picks.
You can clearly see there are plenty of reasons why it's not about not drafting a WR.
I very much doubt anybody here would have thought this a good draft prior to our making the picks in fact if I had posted such a mock I would have been ridiculed.
Yes it's true you can't know how a draft will pan out until a few years down the road but it is possible to say to a point whether or not the odds are in favor of it doing so or not.
The FO is not infallible to go against the 90% of facts that suggest a pick is bad off of the OPINION of the FO is parroting the line of thinking.
Now I posted this on another thread if somebody wants to debate me on a pick I will but it has to have a actual argument nothing like well maybe somehow though the odds are a million to one Dillon will be Bettis or such similarly ridicules statements.
