Just curious who you liked in this draft that you think wouldn't have been worthy of criticizing?
To me, we always have the right to criticize/second guess, etc, the move I would have liked to see instead was trade down from 4 to 7 with 16 thrown in. It feels like Detroit would have done that. At #7 I'd have taken Toppin or Advija and at #16 maybe Maxey (but I knew less about these prospects because I didn't scout down that far). I'd have rather had two guys to 1 though, and it feels highly likely that deal was available based on the news we have heard.
At any rate, I'll just wait to see on Williams, I went through and looked at all the picks and whether I liked them or disliked them, and my initial take on picks was probably right only about half the time.
