I still don't see it. We had 4 picks in the top 75. We should have taken a chance on upside somewhere in there. Nido, Oswalt, Stank are all decent picks to spend a bit of dough on, but none of them are upper echelon talents like we could have taken in the top 75, even if it costed a couple extra hundred grand.
As ATL said they ended up doing a real good job with the picks but I wonder if they just took guys knowing they couldn't sign them. It's a built in excuse now to if they don't really make a run after them. Luckily the deadline is now July 13 so we'll have games every year to determine what we have in the system that same year.
Looks like we got Flexen signed for only $375K. Great news DePo. Nido and Flexen seemed to be 2 of our harder signs so with those both in we're looking good so far. Also, it seems as if everyone is higher on Cecchini than we are. Maybe we have to re-evaluate the pick after he's signed and we see what he does at Kingsport.
The thing with Cecchini is that if he fills in/hits his power peak, he's probably going to have to move off SS, which is what makes him a valuable piece. He's never going to be sexy, in any way, not even as a defender. We just need to hope he stays walking and stays as an above average defender.
