That first round pick was such a disappointment and I wouldn't even be surprised if Forbort never pans out, honestly. At least he made up for it by taking Toffoli in the next round, but still
I rarely agree with you, but I think you're right on this. I never liked the Forbort pick either. I'm not a fan of "project" picks in the 1st round.
DL is excellent at drafting in from the 2nd round on, but his 1st round picks are usually questionable.
