I keep hearing how Ted refused to draft "_________'s" replacement. It's not like Ted skipped the draft that year. He's filling lots of holes, some we haven't even seen spring a leak yet, with the most talented player he sees available.
You're making my point. If there's flaming bags of dog crap at a position in the draft at that slot, then take the better prospect and grab a free agent to fill the glaring hole with someone who is decent, even if it's not a long-term answer.
