The late round picks are where the great GM's make their legacy.
Of course they wouldn't, just like coaches will speak glowingly of a player in news articles, even if he isn't in the plans for the roster.

But instead of pointing out the obvious, care to provide all of the "talent" we've picked in the 7th round? We've had much better luck with UDFA's than we have with 7th rounders.

After watching a few highlights, I like this move.

Well yea, but look at just who the GM's have been......and the Bolts are not known for drafting well, pick aside.....


Don't ask me to research who has been successful with 7th rounders, my interest is not that great.

Yeah I just watched his throws from pre-season last year and he looked pretty solid. Might need to reign in the deep ball a bit but he definitely has potential. Huge, good speed, and a cannon. Looking forward to seeing him in preseason this year.

Can we use Jones in a wildcat package? Is this something Lynn is into?

We get 51 UDFA's per year .

I'm with you though. 7th is a throw away pick. Hell, we toss 4th round picks around like its trash, why not a 7th ?

Not that kind of player, decent mobility.... But he's a big "Traditional" QB.
