I’ll keep this brief –
My point is, why should Howie give a ton of deference to his scouting department? Why not use the “public” consensus for picking?
This is dumb, sure. But we’ve screwed up so many early round draft picks over the last ten years, when not let the public decide. In other words, screw our scouting department. Howie should defer to the online big boards. Try something new.
