As a Director of Scouting when drafting Kelly, he was instrumental in brining Kelly in after the USFL folded.
Oh yah, then Polian went and brought in Bruce Smith, traded down for SHane Conlan, traded up for Nate Odems, greased Colts for Cornelius Bennet, drafted Thurman Thomas and Andre Reed in 2nd and 4th rounds. HIS team hit up 4 Super Bowls.
Then went to Carolina and took them to a Championship game in Year 2 - AS AN EXPANSION TEAM!!!!
Went to Colts and drafted Manning immediately, followed by Edgerrin James, drafted Reggie Wayne, Dwight Freeney, Robert Mathis, Cato June...some reliable players albeit not big names (not everyone can be) such as Dallas Clark, Donald Strickland, Ben Hartsock, Bob Sanders, Larry Triplett, Marlon Jackson, Kelvin Sheppard, Jacob Tamme, Pierrer Garcon
Do it once, maybe Lucky...do it twice...hmmm....3 times, each VIA THE DRAFT many of which were finessed with trades...this guy knows talent, knows how to play the boards to get it.
Please....that Resume is ridiculous, may be the best ever.
