Somebody butthurt as fuck because the Lions haven't had a relevant running back since Barry Sanders.

I think your point about system/infrastructure is key. If you're not finding guys who actually fit the coaching scheme, or you're cycling through coaches every other year, you're going to end up with a mish-mash of talent that doesn't complement anything you want to do. Especially if your entire draft philosophy is unweighted BPA. I know the obvious counter argument is that a coach should figure out how to utilize the talent he has, but it's clear that there is only a tiny, tiny group of coaches who seem to be able to actually do that. Seems like it's a lot easier, in today's NFL, to not draft 3-4 players when your coach runs a 4-3, than to draft whoever and expect your coaches to change.
