Scouts of WR needy teams passed on Desean Jackson twice as well. For guys like Donnie Avery and Devin Thomas. Your point is.....?
We won't know for a year or two.... until then it's water under the bridge.
exactly pretty lame example
Actually its probably the best example there is... 49ers' forums weren't clamoring for Tom Brady only to have the 49ers pass on them. It's the most recent example of a player that just about every fanbase thought was a high first round value with incredible value in the 2nd, yet got passed over by NFL scouts who thought they knew better for reach players that didn't pan out. Everyone used the same argument for the 49ers passing on Desean Jackson.... the truth is NFL scouts aren't any more intelligent than a good number of people on this messageboard, they just get access to more film and information regarding character/health concerns.
