To anyone who criticizes Ted Thompson for not recognizing that the position needed help, I remind you of the report that states that Thompson had targeted Ryan Shazier in the first round until he was taken six picks earlier. Criticism of Ted not adjusting his plan on the fly is still warranted, though.
