Was It Really That Difficult To Nail This Draft?

I am in no way marginalizing the work and effort that each team puts into the draft. I truly appreciate the sheer amount of research/scouting/evaluating that goes into it. I am very happy with the Jets' draft results.

My question is, with this draft so deep with so much talent, how could anyone really blow it? I mean, this year it was as if the "first round" stretched into 2/3 of the second there was so much talent.

I know a lot of people like to decipher who was successful based on the "value" of the player who they picked at what slot, but to me that seems completely subjective. Every year, in every round, there are guys taken way ahead and after the "experts" thought they would/should. But what difference does that make? The team put way more work into these guys, and for the most part decided where they felt that player belonged.

It's almost as if, if you're going to do so at all, they shouldn't be "graded" at all until the results of picks after the 3rd round have had 2/3 years to perform.

I am not saying Izzy gets a free pass on this draft at all. I think he worked brilliantly. But I definitely get this impression that this year's draft was an embarrassment of riches. How could anyone get a poor "grade"?
