It's not that he's "bad" at judging OL talent, he just hasn't spent many early picks on the position. The ones he has have been home runs.
Exactly. In the first two rounds he has drafted Marvell Smith, Kendall Simmons, Gilbert and Pouncey. Knocked all three out of the park (Simmons had unfortunate injury issues after a few years, but great otherwise.) In later rounds he stole Starks, Colon, Essex and Kemoeatu, who wasn't always as bad as he is now... he was quite good, actually.
Urbik, it turns out, was another good pick on whom the team gave up so that they could hold onto the mighty Dorian Brooks.
As for his other misses, what does it matter if Shipley didn't work out? He was, what, a seventh rounder? Cam Stephenson was a 5th rounder. These things don't always work out.
