There is no such thing as a "reach". Not since Pittsburg selected Colorado State quarterback Gary Glick
first overall after consulting Street & Smiths' college football yearbook.Swear to God, it happened
back in the 1950's. ('56 I think) That was the days of "shoebox" drafting, shoe box full of clippings
CBS and ESPN do not scout for NFL teams. Mike Mayock or Bucky Brooks make many times the salary
of an NFL scout. But, as far as I know, no team asks their opinion while compiling their draft day board.
I'm sure every team could make a compelling case, based on sound reasons, why they selected this
guy and not another. I think Mel Kiper should apply for a trademark of the term "reach".
