I started wondering about our lack of depth on this team this morning, so looked something up. Now, yes, I understand that some of the depth that was playing was doing so due to injuries. But if you look at some of the guys getting playing time, it still makes you wonder WTF is going on... (Thompson, Tierney, and to me ... even Phelan). I noticed as I was looking this up, that while we finally went out this offseason (OK, early in the season) and brought in a player (Osei) ... our lack of drafting talent in the Super Draft from 06-08 is now coming back to just kill this team. If you go as far back as 2005 (Parkhurst, Riley, Lochhead), not one player from the Super Draft is on the roster, just 4 seasons later. '06 was deOliveira, Sims and Kyle Brown. Another bust of a draft. '07 was Thompson, Igwe, Solle, Byrne, Cristman and Helton. I'd make an argument that the best of that group was Cristman (especially in regards to what he actually did while on the field). We've picked up Colaluca since, but he's done nothing this year. '08 was Valentino, Videira, Germanese, Britner, and Wadsworth. Only one's still on the team, but he's not done much either. We picked up Phelan, but I don't personally have a high opinion of his game. So if you're looking for a reason for the talent drop on this team, here's one main reason.
