Q: Hi Doug. I like the pick. It may be a long shot, but in a weak draft, that's the time to take a chance.

Do you have any thoughts on what the players think? I don't think Brian exactly asks "what do you think?", but am curious if they saw this coming. It gives us an idea of how well they may buy into the "future" of the club. An previous drafts that were "surprises" to the players as well as fans?....sans Hoffa

A: I’m told – without any first-hand knowledge I’ll fully admit – that some of the players who were in town were quite put off by the pick. That’s entirely born of ignorance, of course, because none of them have any idea whether or not the kid can play and if he can, they’ll love him.
