One was necessary, not three. You'll get no argument from me on the wasted draft opportunity. Clady was taken with the pick after the one we traded to Atlanta in the first round; Calais Campbell was around when we picked in the second; and so on. I blame Gibbs, in part, because he had no plan for the future, it was all about winning now, hence all the money (and picks) to old vets like Brunnell, Kendall, Hall, etc. Personnel wasn't his strong suit (that was Bobby Bethard) and he was dependent on Cerrato and Synder (God help us) for those decisions.
