My point is that our players skills need to translate to us, not the NFL, imo. Any overlap is fine and dandy, but it's just icing on the cake. Godhigh was a stud for us and I doesn't mean beans if he never plays a snap in the NFL. I think its great that our offense allows guys with non-NFL skill sets to have great success. That's the whole point of getting Johnson here in the first place.Guys who translated well to the NFL were usually stud players for our team. Megatron, BeyBey, Dwyer, Morgan Burnett, Andrew Gardner, Philip Wheeler, Derrick Morgan, Tashard Choice, etc.
It doesn't have to be either/or. You can have your cake and eat it too in that regard. One of the big reasons recruiting was building momentum towards the end of Gailey's tenure was because he had a proven track record of developing and putting guys into the NFL. I would say the ability to develop and put guys into the NFL is just as important as winning when it comes to recruiting.
