What I did not like was the cost involve to trade up to get Patterson. I like a lot of hacks said it was too much. In drafts like this the trade chart goes out the window because your 3rd round pick is actually worth more than it normally would be. i.e Chargers selecting Keenan Allen in the 3rd. All I said was that Floyd was not my highest rated DT and he "falling" to us proves that my opinion was closer to that than many of the scouts you pointed out that knows more than me.
In the end they took Rhodes and Floyd and once they did that they went right back and went after Patterson and my take is that they did not have Teo rated higher than Patterson or they would have taken him instead.
Tha was the best I have seen the FO operate in as long as I can remember. Calculating, aggressive and decisive. Can't ask for more than that.

Now that the draft is complete.. it was average
To me, BPA for Floyd and Rhodes... And then, go get the 2nd best playmaker in the Draft.
I think the coaches' input perhaps had something to do with the non selection of Te'O...meaning, perhaps they actually talked to Ricky and told him they think EH can play Mike.
Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent
As a matter of fact, I do know

Everyone keeps talking about the first 3 picks.
Great picks... trade kinda pricey...what about the rest of the draft.
In the 4th.. I would have rathered.
I just feel like rounds 4 - 7 was a clusterfuck.
We left lost of talent out there to draft meh.
I like our later round picks too. We needed depth at LB and got it. We needed depth at punter and got it. The FO has their finger on the pulse of what they need, who is under contract, and what they can afford. I think from what I do know that they did a pretty good job of doing what they could with what they had.

Just ignore the list of guys better than who they drafted.
