“A lot of people are always curious, and it’s something Kyle and I set out to do and I think it’s why this thing, for us, has worked so well is that everyone has in your contract: You do this. The draft is mine,” General Manager John Lynch said Monday. “But I told Kyle from the beginning that he and I are doing this together, and when it comes to quarterbacks, I’d be foolish, I believe, [to make the pick]. We have a head coach who’s also our offensive play caller. I will always defer to him. You know what’s cool about that is that Kyle I think respects my opinion enough. He always wants it. Ultimately, we arrive at decisions. We will and come Thursday we’ll have a pick that hopefully makes everyone proud, but that will judged in years to come. We’ve done our best to make sure it’s a great decision for this franchise.”
