I'm totally missing the point then why you are randomly bringing up draft picks from over 20 years ago and another random one drafted in the 3rd round. 

as evidence that sometimes top cb draft picks dont pan out.  it was kind of a joke.

you sort of took that and then said i didnt think we should draft a cb at 3.  i didnt say that, you inferred it.  since then, i have said - numerous times - that i thought they should have taken okudah at 3.

I'm not saying we can't draft a CB in the 1st round. I'm just asking the question does Okudah deserve to automatically sink or swim next year based on where he was drafted or if he is outplayed in camp, do one of Dunbar or Oruwariye deserve a starting spot? I'd love to think last year was all Covid killing training camp and Patricia and Co. being an abysmal staff and that Okudah will rebound with a new regime. I'd like to think the same of Tahvi too, but I don't have a good feeling on either.

tahvi is a different animal, imo.  

okudah was selected where everyone thought he would be selected and tested (and played) really well in college.  tahvi was drafted waaaaaay before anyone thought, tested poorly, didnt star in college, and then sucked.  and was drafted specifically for that type of defense.

if tahvi amounts to anything in detroit, i'll be really surprised.  it would not shock me in the least if tahvi is cut in training camp.  it would surprise me if he is on the team in 2022.

Tater no one will be handed a starting position in camp from this coaching staff based on draft position.

But not for 1 second do I think Okudah will be outplayed by both Dunbar and Oruwariye. Do you?

Nor do I think Goff will be outplayed by any other QB on the team in training camp. Not based on draft position but, rather... 

Ability.

Just as another example...

So the Lions just skipping a game entirely?

Vegas is not going to put out a win total less than 4-5.  They are trying to make money.

That was my point, by setting it at 5 they are basically saying its gonna be like 1 or 2. 5 lets them get play on both sides. 

Remember Vegas isn't a prediction, its what they think will get an even number on both sides of the line
