Of course, I never see drafting O-line in R1 as a wasted pick. That's just me.
and while none of us want a mediocre to bad season, or two or 3 in a row - sometimes those are the opportunities that create better SB-quality rosters down the road. The late 90s and early 2000s set some things up very nicely for us - this is the only way I keep myself sane in down season(s)
