Yeah, I'm having hard time imagining what people think is special and what is pretty good. For example is Cam Jordan type of career special or "pretty good" or somewhere in between? Is Chubb worth a top 3 pick if he has a career like that for us? What about Olivier Vernon?
Or do we need to go into the Von Miller/Khalil Mack range? If you expect any player you draft to be Von Miller/Mack range you are bound to be disappointed IMO. We need to have more reasonable expectations for whoever we draft. We want our guard to be Zach Martin, our RB to be LaDainian Tomlinson, our pass-rushers to be Von Miller and our 3-tech to be Aaron Donald. I mean... nothing bad in hoping but the realities are that the chance of any player we draft to be the very best at his position is not great. We should be expecting more reasonable outcomes for them and if they happen to surpass that, it's a bonus.
You very well may be right... but I certainly hope you're wrong.
We went down that road with both a Polian and Grigson... and Irsay said his view was too much offense and not enough defense... we will see if that holds up...
