QUOTE OF THE DAY
GM Buddy Nix
On if the thought is to get an immediate starter from the draft this year:
“You’d think at 10 you’d get a starter. With us, what we’d like to get, like everybody else we’d like to get a difference maker or a playmaker, the impact guy. You should get a starter. But again we don’t and I guess I don’t feel the pressure that we’ve got to start a guy just because we drafted him 10th. That’s Chan’s philosophy, it’s ours that a guy is going to compete for the job rather than giving it to him right off.”
