Jim Bowden talks about one draft, when he wanted to draft Tim Costo, but the head of the draft wanted to pick Dan Wilson. Bowden said he picked Dan Wilson, because that's what he paid the draft guy for, to make that decision.
Luhnow though was in charge of draft decisions before the draft and Jocketty was almost taken completely out of the pre-draft decisions. It was the main reason why there was so much contention in the Cardinals front office.
