ArmyBengal Posted April 21, 2009 Report Share Posted April 21, 2009 So I was wondering how much do you think the following year's group of players factors into what a team does in regards to planning ?? I would think it is limited because you can't determine anything with any certainty, but was still curious. Here's what I was looking at and made me start wondering...We have a need at MLB, but we have Dhani holding it down. Do we go after a guy like Maualuga or Laurinaitis knowing we have Dhani or do we wait until next year to get the MLB when next year's draft class of MLB is looking pretty stacked with Spikes out of Florida and McClain out of Alabama ?? After that, there are another 4 that could go in the 2nd round.I get they could move up and down and injuries are a factor, but you get what I'm saying.Let's look at the Center position. This year the draft is PACKED full of Centers that I feel will come in and help this team. Next year there's ONE that is projected to go in the first two rounds and he doesn't even weigh 300 pounds at this time. The highest rated 300+ pound center is currently projected as a 4th rounder. How can we not address such a glaring need when the future isn't looking any better the upcoming season ??Once again, I understand things can change...You can go on and on with this. The defensive end class for next season looks just crazy at this point with up to 7 DE's that have 1st round talent. Cornerbacks for next year looked stacked as well with better than 10 having 2nd round talent or better.I'm basically looking at our positions of need and like I said, was just curious to how next year's class impacts this year's decisions...
