ballpeen Posted January 4, 2009 Report Share Posted January 4, 2009 One of the faults I had with Savage is I think he tended to get too wrapped up in his scouting reports and sometimes found things in guys that weren't there...trying to pluck a diamond in the rough so to speak when there were other diamonds in plain view. That is fine in the later rounds, and actually worked in his favor with some of the later round picks, but I think reached for guys like Wimbly, Rucker, Bell, and maybe a few others. My hope is whoever we select, we look for a "safer" route, and go by what our eyes tell us rather than read something in to a scouting report. We should have good solid picks galore when we select in rounds 1 and 2, even in to rounds 3 and 4, and hope we don't get a guy who starts throwing the dice, looking for more than is available. Get some guys who you know are going to be at least good, solid players rather than seek out that guy who might be great....or might not. We need some players we can count on out of the gate.
