Star Players and the Draft


I've been thinking a lot about the draft and reading a lot of other people's posts. I'm not writing this to say who I think we should pick this month. Rather, I want to make a point based off of what we've done so far in FA. I think Grigs has a great plan. Money aside (that's a whole different debate that has been beaten to death) I think I can see what he's doing. We used FA as a way to upgrade poor to below average players to average or slightly above average players. Did we get any pro bowlers? Maybe in Landry (stay healthy, please) or Gosder (keep improving, please), but no slam dunks. What we did do is upgrade and build solid depth that we didn't have last year. That brings me to the point of this post. I don't really give a shit who we draft at 24 so long as they can develop into a Star Player. I don't care who we already have at that given position or what needs we have. The draft is to build for the future. Different teams have star players at different positions. The Jets have Revis (CB). Titans have Johnson (RB). Pats have Brady (QB). Texans have Watt (DE). Cowboys have Ware (LB). We have Wayne (WR) and Mathis (OLB). You get my point and many teams have more than one. At the end of the day, regardless of position, teams need to have game changers and lets face it...we don't have many. So, come late April all I want is the BPA who can start to build our group of Star Players. Throw needs out the window at this point. We need game wreckers regardless of position and what kind of depth we already have. I think I will be happy with anything so long as it's not QB (yes that includes TE, RB, OT, and some other positions we "feel" as though we are set at) if they have the potential to become a corner stone of our franchise.
