    Sorry, late to the chat game. I’m actually happy with the Haskins pick. I mean, you never know with QB’s, but I’m 100% behind this kid. I’m even more happy that the FO didn’t do something crazy to get him!

    One year is meaningless. If you have the chance to add top-tier talent you take it. Whether he can contribute immediately is 100% irrelevant.

    Anytime you are talking about a knee injury for a RB it’s potentially significant given the shelf life of players at the position.

    And we are talking about a #4 pick not a #7 pick.

    WHERE you take players is key in balancing risk vs. reward

    Not quite the full story - the decision process, specifically risk, is more complex.

    1. We know injured players drop in the draft - that clearly reflects uncertainty.

    2. The nature of the injury makes a difference.

    Bobby Beathard used to draft college players that were top juniors but got hurt as seniors and fell off a lot of teams draft ready boards in April.

    He hit on some guys that became franchise players here like Charles Mann but he had his failures too.

    Years ago, though draft picks were worth less in an era without a cap.

    Now you really can’t build without cheap draft picks that turn out and perform for you.
