Regarding "Draft Day", well when it was made the Jaguars had been pretty bad for quite awhile. It is probably not a reach to portray the front office as not knowing what they were doing. We know things have (by all appearances) have changed, but as you say, that will have to be reflected on the field before the average fan outside of Jacksonville will understand. By the way, I've never seen the movie, any good?
The movie was pretty good. Over dramatic at times but that is hollywood. The GM did a big Gene Smith move.
1. Gratz was a rookie who missed time. Colvin has yet to take and NFL snap.
2. Who really cares how someone gets beat at the first day of pads. The defense is already at disadvantage because they have not been allowed to hit up to this poiint. It's practice. Anyone can look like a star in practice. I miss the old days of training camp. Where a defender would knock a rookie out for certain plays. Sadly the NFL had gotten really soft by turning the game into basketball on grass.
