To suggest that not drafting the best available player, as decided using hindsight, is a mistake is stupid.
A lot of people knew Fowler and Tarasenko would be better at the time of the draft. Let's not pretend like this is some obscure 7th round pick who became a superstar that we are complaining about. Fowler and Tarasenko were picked not far after and they clearly had more talent. Still what justifies picking him over a guy who was projected to go top 5 or a guy who was a top 3 European prospect.
