Maybe we should have picked an OL, DL, LB, and WR with our first four picks this year. Hell, Elgton Jenkins has arguably been our most consistent/valuable OL over the past 2 years and he's on his rookie contract.

The moves/draft picks by our GM over the past 2 years are giving me a bad vibe.

I agree. The moves are inconsistent as a group. Signing Bakh for 4 years is a move you make if you think you can win now. If you extend guys for that much money, your draft picks have to produce on their rookie contracts. It also means that they must be assuming that Dillon will take over for  Jones next year and Love will take over for Rodgers in 2022.

They've drafted like they think they are rebuilding, but extending Bakh is a win now move.

Completely agree. I have zero idea what Gutekunst's thought process here is. Unless he wants to emulate the mid 00's-10's Cleveland Browns and have a stud LT surrounding a bunch of pedestrian offensive players.
