Look, maybe he turns out to be a solid starter.

But not being able to show he was ready for the field until 2006 was practically over, and with the front office reportedly still looking for linebacker depth makes it reasonable to say that he wasn't worth trading up and losing another 2nd round pick. I don't think it's premature at all to say that.

When you give up future draft picks for a guy, he'd better show more than Rocky did. He may not be a bust ... but I'm not holding my breath.

Re: DT Marcus Thomas.

Thomas is still on the board. I doubt he'll drop to the 5th for us, but if he did, would we risk our second pick in the draft on a guy like him? If he couldn't get his act together to play on a team that was headed to the National Championship, what makes us think that, with more money and opportunities, he'll get his act together for a team that may or may not be headed to another high draft pick?

It's risk vs reward. if this guy is there in the 5th round, he's certainly going to be the best player available. With a 5th round pick you also don't have the financial obligation you do with other players. If he's not getting his shit together, kick him to the curb with little to no effect on the cap.
