-Nobody on the active roster is over 25 years old
-Drafted MCW 11th who is the favorite for ROY
-Moultrie will be back this year
-Noel is coming next year
-Traded essentially nothing for good bench player in Wroten
-Misfits Orton and Anderson may be worth keeping
-Have up to three valuable trade pieces (Turner, Young, Hawes)
-Will most likely have two 1st rounders in the upcoming draft
-Have three 2nd rounders in the upcoming draft
-Extreme salary cap flexibility
-New practice facility will be built

So it's not the end of the world if we don't get one of the freshman big three, but man it would be epic. I wrote all of that just to put my own mind at ease lol.
Respect you optimism, I just believe this team needs a top 4 pick to put them over the edge in having a true core to build around. You do make all good points, which can make everyone feel a LITTLE better, lol.
