I mean, I can understand the mentality, that you don't want to be seen as a dupe, not "drinking the Kool-Aid", whatever. That's fine. What I can't understand is the tone that this is somehow a foregone conclusion, that the Jets blundered by taking Scheifele.
I myself would've liked to see the Jets draft Couturier; doesn't automatically mean I think Scheifele was the "wrong" pick. And thus far, I think Mark has dispelled any of those notions that he was a reach by 10+ picks. Can you imagine what an unbelievable steal he would be considered as a late first-rounder?
