Observers of the club targeted safety as a draft need entering the weekend. Both Grigson and Pagano said the pool was not deep enough to merit action.
“Everyone on the outside can’t really understand how this works. You don’t see the (draft) board (or) watch all the film,” said Grigson. “If there’s not the players there that you feel are good enough to pick, you can’t pick them. If the guys you’re looking at possibly drafting, if they’re almost the same as you have on your roster, it doesn’t make you better.
“There were a small handful of guys we felt we could get, it just didn’t happen. It was not a deep safety class. If there was a safety we liked, we would have (taken) one.”
Said Pagano, “We’ve got guys in-house. There will be great competition. You stick to the process and stay true to the board, don’t reach and fill a need when the value’s not there.”
