At least with picks you can have optimism, keeping these same guys around just causes more of the same complacency.


This is a draft, where having 10-14 picks could transform your entire franchise if you trust the people making the decisions.

I'm not sure I do, but at least with picks I can't be skeptical until after the draft.

I trust Gillis' eye for talent. The losing may make that tough to take, but he's got it. That's why I have liked his 1st round picks, and why I want him to retain this years pick no matter what. Will he though? With all the pressure to make a move? That's a tough test coming up for him.
