And frankly, I think there's nothing to it.
There's no particular advantage
to doubling down, so why would
he make a point to do so?

The advantage is you get 2 players at a position of need, and hopefully they can learn from each other and both become decent players. Or at least one of them is good.
But there is certainly an advantage of 2 players coming in trying to learn a new system together.
Unsubstantiated, sarcastic drivel is no substitute for a point
. Simmer down.
What I'm saying ~ quite clearly ~ is that I highly doubt he makes a point
to Double Dip.
Yet I'm more than open to the possibility
that he makes it a point to do so.
But your weak, blank assertion will hardly suffice to persuade me, my friend.
In the natural ebb and flow of things, any team will often draft two guys of the same position, without any particular strategy to do so
, simply based on who they think is the BPA at each of their Picks, throughout the course of the Draft. That's obvious...right?
And while Synergy and Collaboration are good Arguments in support of this notion of Deliberate Double Dipping,
they are perfectly counterbalanced ~ some would say: overwhelmed
~ by the obvious perils of infusing a disproportionately large influx of Inexperience at one position...don't you think?
I, myself, have often been criticized for precisely that thing
~ too much Youth and Inexperience ~ in my Mocks, as I like to festoon
my Mock Rosters with Rookies.
But I do so because I prefer a talented Rookie to a talentless Veteran, not
because of some notion that Double Dipping on Rookies is, in and of itself, an especially smart move.
