OK, I’ve been popping in and out for a while, trying to keep up with my team, but I’ve got to know: Why didn’t we draft Early Doucet in the third round? I can understand getting Charles at #73, but getting Cottam at #76 was mind-boggling. It seemed like the organization figured they could relax after getting solid value from the first three picks, and just finish out the draft to plug holes in the roster. Why would they take a filler guy when they had a chance to draft a difference maker?
I don’t have a specific problem with the players picked, but I’d like another perspective as to why we didn’t pick Doucet, arguably a first-round talent, who happens to play in a position of great need. Is there anyone here who could explain the reasoning?
81. Early Doucet
84. Harry Douglas
95. Mario Manningham
97. Andre Caldwell
All of these WRs were picked after we selected Cottam.
