Oz screwed up big time that draft
This brings up multiple interesting points in its own right. However, has anyone taken taken the time to look at how the player plays well in the system?. I see all these people just assuming that a certain player is a better or worse pick because they play for another team. How many times have we seen a player play well in a certain system, only to move on and perish??
I just cannot get behind you saying Ozzie screwed this up because so and so is playing well on another team. This is not personal that I say this. I say this because of experience watching the NFL for over 30 yrs.
Take a look at say Gino Atkins, it took him a minute, he bought into the system and is playing well. Does that transfer 100% to any team, I think not. There are many different factors that goes into a player playing up to and beyond the potential expected. There is no tangible truth that saying we draft Atkins, we are better. It did not happen.
If you want tangible truth, look no further than 2012 Ravens SUPER BOWL CHAMPIONS!!! I say Ozzie really got that one right..
