Dadraftnick Posted April 8, 2009 Report Share Posted April 8, 2009 I was watching the NFL Network the other day and they said somethig that I have conteded all along .They said that the Bengals have more players that ,they have drafted playing for other teams than, any other team .And they pointed out that, the Steelers are among the teams that ,have the fewest players that, they have drafted playing for other teams.Why ? Because the Steelers take the player that fits their needs and system ,not the Best player avaliable!You cannot take the best player avaliable because, when you do you leave holes on your team which, the other teams exploit and you end up drafting players for other teams.IMO you have to fill all of your needs with quality starters , that is what the Patriots have done, that is what the Steelers have done.Best player avaliable is a left over from the days when you had 24 rounds of the draft and a player was yours for life enless you traded him.When you only have 7 rounds of the draft and you have free agency , you have to use your vaulable draft choices to fill your needs not take guys that you know that you do not have a roster spot for or will be a back up , when you have holes that the rest of the league is ready to exploit every time you play them.The best player avaliable is why the Bengals always seem to take one step forward and 3 steps back.
