Just thought it was worth pointing out that they took Dats and Zetty in back to back drafts in the 6th and 7th rounds and they both turned into exceptional players. Clear good fortune obviously. But id put money on the fact that there probably hasnt been another team to draft two players so close together, that late, and have both of them become such proven players. Ignoring the fact that the flew under the radar all the way to the back of the draft.

Quite the anomaly if you ask me.
