RBNY Wanted Zach Shilawski Ahead of Tim Ream?
Here's an interesting bit from the latest episode of Inside the SuperDraft. It's Erik Soler & the RBNY brain trust debating who to take with their second pick. Ritchie Williams was thinking of nabbing Zach Schilawski at #14 and taking a gamble on getting Tim Ream at #18 (which is when New York eventually took him). But New England ended up with Schilawski as the #9 pick and New York took Austin da Luz at #14.
Sure, RBNY could have used Schilawski's hat trick last weekend against Chivas but my early, small-sample size, gut feeling is that Ream was a better choice for them. For me the question is why not take Ream at #14 instead of taking the gamble on him being available later? Was da Luz that hot of a commodity?
Either way, I'm loving this series. My boys Jason, Scott & Dan knocked it out with this one. Stay tuned for episode 3...coming soon to a browser near you.
