QUOTE OF THE DAY
GM Buddy Nix opening remarks of the pre-draft media luncheon:
“This really culminates a year of work for us. These guys and our scouts, it comes down to this. We start out, and I think I tell you this every year, but there are about 2,000 names that we start with to go through and we wind up with, this year we’ve got 10 picks. It just keeps coming down each time we meet. We eliminate and keep trying to stack them and get them in the right place. You do everything you can to make sure you make all the choices count. You very seldom ever do that but that’s the goal.”
