    FWIW I laughed at Rosen at 11 because I always knew he’d be available for a 2nd a year later :mulletsmug:

    agree with the money situation, but just how do we know it was a "strong 2019 draft"? Haven't even gone through camp yet

    You can evaluate a draft class before they’ve played a down

    Hence all those “draft grades” that come out after the draft

    Idk where you are going with this, are you saying people can’t have opinions about draft classes immediately after the draft?

    They can but it means nothing in terms of the future and is not reason to crown anyone.

    But the tweet was in reference to evaluating the rebuild as of now

    I don't see the point in congratulating them on players people hope will be good. Nobody congratulated the Patriots on Brady when it happened. Putting yourself in a great position to be able to make draft picks and sign free agents can be commended though.

    Said strong draft, I think you can give your opinions on draft results right after it’s over

    Of course that opinion can be proven to be right or wrong down the road

    Saying the 2019 draft was strong isn't an accomplishment. It's an opinion based on doing something literally every team does (ie. drafting players).

    You can list the rest of the stuff there to tell the story that it's been a smart offseason without throwing in "accomplishments" that aren't based on anything such as "strong draft class." No one knows.

    Even the Rosen trade is an accomplishment even if it doesn't work out because you can make the case based on what we know that the risk/value is positive. Plus it was making a decently aggressive move.

    Drafting players in the slot that was handed to you from the league and how drafts work isn't really an accomplishment until those players are actually any good or not.
