Correct, which is why it's best to have more of them. If you don't? Then you better be right about them.
Im not saying your wrong, but the support system needs to be there, it a cyclical thing. Raven for the past 18 years is the best example I see, your still going to have those down seasons.(unless youir the pats.)
...and the Ravens have been masters of the comp pick formula - and don't make a habit of trading away their early round picks. Philly and New England seem to follow a similar model. If I'm wrong about any of those 3 then re-direct, but that's been my perception. Of course you're not going to be great every season, but it's a model that gives you the best chance to be successful each season. It enhances the window.
Fire more bullets then retain the core pieces you hit then recoup comp picks on the non-core pieces you lose and forget about the misses.
