    I wouldn't mind getting him. I don't care for the idea of drafting a OL in which we can get one in the second round just as good. Mainly cause we have just as many holes to fill and fix in other places.

    Now, if a guy doesn't live up to his potential, that's a different story. Teams only have so much they can go off before they draft these guys. Any player can turn into a huge bust, but there's only so much you can do to really evaluate how good you think a certain player will be.

    Look at Mario Williams, #1 pick in 2006. 4.5 sacks in his rookie season. That's pretty 3rd or 4th roundish for a 4-3 DE, and definitely a BUST for the #1 overall pick. Then in 2007 though: 14.5 sacks. Give Tyson some time to develop, it was his first year on the DL, and regardless, 3-4 DE's aren't going to have sexy stats. Everyone on this site seems to think every defensive player needs to have 100+ tackles, 7 sacks, and 4 forced fumbles in order for the team to be successful. It's ridiculous. I guess we should have taken Aaron Curry huh? He had a stellar year.
    Very true. Everybody is smarter and able to pick the right guy a full year later.

    Hindsight is 20-20. I never liked the pick, but my pick (Raji) hasn't been too hot either.

    We could of easily had BJ Raji, Micheal Oher. Which would have been better picks. That fact I am saying is no player is guarenteed to turn out the way you want. They might be worse, or better.

    Look at Marque Colston. 7th round pick. Now he is one of there best Receivers. Ryan Sccoup...Jared Allen..
    I completely agree with you. Those guys would have probably been more of an immediate fix. I wanted to throw the Mario Williams example out there though because it's still too early to judge Tyson.

    Whether he was the best 3-4 DE is your opinion. But you're mistaken that he was a 3rd or 4th rounder. He was going in the top-12 of the draft, whether we took him or not.

    Michael Oher is not a DE.


    Edit: Ooops. I saw his name highlighted and thought you were saying he was a DE. Sorry about that.

    I dont like him because of his medical condition with Crones. I don't want to draft a guy top 5 and have him leave because he had to have treatments.

    maybe a 2nd B pick but not top five at the moment.

    He was a mid first round guy and we pick him at the #3 spot.

    I was concerned with this when I initially read about it, but it hasn't stopped him in college. The guy LOVES football, seems to have an exceptional football IQ and has a high motor. I think he would add some much needed attitude and swagger to this team. He won't fall past #12 pick overall, so a reach at #5 overall is not too much in my opinion.

    No he wasn't! He was projected to #9 (Packers) in almost all mocks, and #12 to the Broncos at the absolute latest. I have no idea where this myth came from that he was a mid-to-late 1st round guy.
