Default Ever notice that the ESPN analysis on draftees is always negative?

Just a favorite observation, but ever notice that the Scouts inc analysis on ESPN always focuses on the negatives of the drafted players??

Groves is too light.
Merling is too slow
Sweed cant play bump and run
Forte is a reach....etc.

Man I love the drama that is ESPN and the drama queens they have for broadcasters.

Thats an old media trick. If Groves turns out to be great, he overcame the fact that he was to light. If he turns out to be a bust, well we told ya. They have been doing that for years.

When people try to single out who to pick for something, you always try to find whats wrong with them and eliminate them, not whats good and keep them. It's faster.

I hate how there is always 1 guy who thinks it is cool to disagree with everybody. Marcellus Wiley said that Matt Ryan was basically an average non franchise QB. How many others have said that??

I think Forte is going to be really good. I just have a really good feeling about this kid.

Mel Kiper seems to take it personally when teams don't do what he thinks they should do.

I have the same feeling about Tashard Choice. I thought Forte went a round too early at least, but you never know.

That's because he feels he can do a better job than a team's GM/Head Coach/Owner.
