If they took these chances they may have more talent in the system in order to deal them if needed. We just had too many drafts of Ring, Broadway,McColluch in the 1st round and then not followed up with over slot talent later in the draft.

I'm not saying throw money around in the draft loosy goosy, but to get clearly superior talent sometimes you need to pay the price.

If you can't develop talent why would you overpay to get it?
