You have to look at every pick int he context of what we had to work with and who was available. If Poile had 3 straight first overalls, we'd have some firepower too.

You can fault Poile on a lot of things, but drafting is not one of them.
I would actually say Poile has struggled a bit with the second round in particular, but I would never his ability to do well in late rounds.
