Draft on skill, throw them into the 22 from day dot and burn them out across two years. Rinse and repeat - those that stick around get good pr on them, circulate it widely and trade them out for the players you need.
As opposed to supporters Pollyanna, get their loyalty, hopes, money and support and do them slowly, make a sport of it, a long slow burn :)

Yep, Polly, if you do that you will get enough keepers, and the free agency and players wanting to come home will top up the list. The most important asset in a draftee, is the one that does not show up in all the draft tests. Durability, it will show up in that 3 year cycle.
Speaking of player development today we see our player development coach, Brent Guerra, sent packing. He had the job from 2017 to 2019, some of our best years. Maybe the cull is about to start. I wonder who will be next.
