Facts are, if you look across the four drafts Getty has led, with a particular focus on the second round and below, you are looking at in aggregate close to 20 picks.
Outside of Mckinney and Ojalari, both very high second rounders, name me another pick in the 20 overall that turned into a real piece for this team.
I stress, not a star, but a piece that is contributing week in and out to our success.
This team is god awful because not only are we missing at the key spots like o line and edge, but we have a bunch of JAG's everywhere else. Even Slayton, once viewed as a diamond in the rough, is expendable. He stinks.
I'll go a step further. How good were Getty's first round drafts when compared to their draft slot? Barkley at #2 is a bust. No other way to put it. When you draft a RB at #2, you risk the beating these guys take as part of that risk. He's always hurt, he cannot block and his running style is suspect. Hernandez, bust. Jones at #6? He's underperforming that slot when you see guys like Mac Jones going way after him in other drafts and finding success. I do give Jones a bit of a pass because of OL. Dex? At 17? Underperforming given his position and slot. Thomas is fine, although again his contribution against slot is a B grade. By no means an A student yet.
My point, you cannot just look to hit on top picks. You have to find an Amani Toomer or a Brandon Jacobs, or a Bradshaw, or a David Diehl, or a O'Hara along the way. You have to. Not consistently, but you need to be smart, play the numbers game across 20 plus picks, and hit a few.
This team is in bad bad shape with the cap next year. We better seriously get a crew in here at GM and scout that have a history of mid-round success in the draft room. This pretty much needs to be all blown up.
