never understood why it reflects poorly on JT that he makes players look better than they are and gets them drafted too high.

Exactly - the OP has this totally backwards. If I am a HS recruit I look at how many players JT puts in the NFL, not what those players did in the NFL. In college your goal has to be to make the NFL. Once in the NFL, it is on you to make it happen from there.

If anything, JT looks very solid in this regard.

Ya gotta admit: The OP is right. We just don't have any good NFL players.

Especially during December through February, when NFL games mattered the most.

Where was Desmond Bishop?

Where was Aaron Rodgers?

Where was Marshawn Lynch?

How about DeSean Jackson?

It's just sad that these players couldn't give Tedford any good PR.

It is pretty amazing that JT took 4 mediocre QBs and made them look good enough not only to get drafted, but to get drafted in the first rounds. Kudos to him.

As an aside, I am surprised Alex Smith didn't make the list -

More solid in real person, I have no idea how a parent would not want his kid to attend Cal if they have the opportunity. 1st class school and 1st class man.

It's also on the team's coaching staff to make it happen. If anything, the article is bad PR for those teams. Akili Smith and Harrington were drafted by lousy organizations; they're not the only players who didn't succeed in Cincinnati and Detroit.

Yeah this is not bad PR, 4 NFL 1st round QBs look great on JT. Does Pete Carroll look bad because Leinart is a f*** up, no.

There are busts in every walk of life, do you blame their teachers? Why there are even busts on the Bear Insider, Epiphini!
