Isn't this somewhat the argue make then they evaluate players by helmets?
"OSU can't develop QBs so don't draft Stroud."
"Penn State is linebacker U."
"Have you seen USC's history of QBs going into the NFL, no way should you draft Caleb."
There's a new GM and President in place, the offensive staff has been reworked.
This isn't the same team of Trestman and Phil Emery,
As other as stated this isn't the typical team holding the #1 pick. They didn't get the pick because they were the worst team.
They are a team that IMO should have made the playoffs.
In addition to #1 they hold the #9 pick that can help a QB drafted at #1.
They have the second most (??) cap space to bring in FAs.
