See, I was thinking the other way. Haeg at RG and Clark at RT (eventually). Grigs was enamored by his arm length which is put to best use on the outside, forcing rushers to go around and allowing Luck to step up. Then again I'm not sure what's being said of Haeg as a G prospect, but I feel like Clark would be best served on the outside once he has time to clean things up.
That you did. I keep getting the names of the 3rd and 4th round guys mixed up. Probably would take something from next years draft also but you are correct and I'm wrong.
I think the reason Dallas declined was there were about 10-12 guys that appeared to have very similar value to the bottom part of round 1. Then a pretty good drop off at around pick 15. I'm thinking Grigson did the right thing by trying to trade up and then trading down and getting his guy he liked at 18. Can't ask for more than that.
That's just it..he may not. I like taking high risk/high reward players (different story in the 1st, where I would be a little more conservative), so I'm not against this pick at all. I do think Grigson/Pagano is trying to build the best possible team leaning toward upside over risk, because they probably have only 2 years to really make good progress before being reevaluated. This draft was pretty unusual compared to the first 4 drafts.
Definitely, my grandfather lived in Baltimore for a while and grew up watching him. He still pulled for Indy but always referred to them as Baltimore. I wasn't allowed to say the name Irsay in my house. The game sure has changed. I wish I could go back in time when players didn't get flagged for breathing on a player and defenses were actually feared by offenses.
