Be interesting to watch the 2018 and 2019 draft cohorts to see how they develop. Too early yet. Bears took Ely Smith with pick 21 in 2018 but if we'd kept it, it would have been absorbed by Quaynor (pick 13) anyway. Could have potentially traded it into 2019. In 2019, Port took Georgiadis with pick 18. Hard to know what those 2 picks together might have gotten us in 2019.Correct. But they made the choice to trade out that 2019 pick for another midfielder in Beams, rather than take it to the draft and target a KPF like Georgiades. That’s my context.
Once it became apparent to them in around 2018 that they wanted to primarily play Darcy Moore as a defender... they should’ve searched for their McMahon type then... not leave it as late as the 2020 draft.
Cause we all know it’s harder to find a decent 2 goal a game KPF... than a decent 20 touches a game midfielder
