Re: Your Opinion #1 overall Draft pick?
agree with 95 % of what you stated Jamesnot, with the exception of teams that spend win superbowls. Yeah spending is gonna fill the seats, but doesn't guarantee you anything. Im from pa, the steelers spend as little as anyone. But they are a very successful franchise. Why, because they make very smart decisions under the laws of the salary cap. It's a gamble of knowing when and not when to let someone go, a gamble on smaller contract guys paying dividends or not. The Steelers for example have made good gambles and are very good at evaluating future talent at a cheaper price. The Phillies, Marlins, are another good example and their are many others. The Redskins,Cowboys, Yankees for example are the big spenders, but have made very stupid gambles that didn't pay off. See my point ? I'm not a big Marc Sanchez fan at all, I wouldn't take him with my first pic. But, a lot of scouts say he has more raw talent than anyone available in the draft at the qb position. Including Stafford, I have no inside info on the Lions, but Sanchez is my bet. And if it were me and I weren't the Detroit Lions, my pic, bar none, would be Michael Crabtree. This guy is a stud and no doubt will be a star, giving that he is put in the right situation. But, because it's the Lions and they desperately need a franshise qb, it's gonna be Sanchez.
