Jason Worilds, OLB, 3-4 would give us another guy who could get after the QB. If Foster wasn't playing out of his mind for Texans, we'd have heard a LOT more from Ben Tate. The guy is a damn good RB. I believe Jimmy Graham is from the same draft class and was drafted a round later. Graham and Vernon
The guy I wanted was taken one pick later: Javier Arenas. But we have a pretty good return game now, so that's probably not who I would want now.
Carlos Dunlap is one of the better players taken later that round.
But what we really need now is a WR. Decent WRs taken after that Mays pick are:
The thing that still kills me is that Brown is the best of all of them, HE WAS IN MY MOCK DRAFT! I had us taking him in the 4th or 5th but he lasted all the way to the 6th. And it turns out he would have been a great value pick in the 2nd.
The pick at least seemed to make sense at the time. We had an aging Michael Lewis and for a guy who was a top 10 pick had he come out a year earlier seemed like a good idea at the time to be his replacement. The Balmer pick still stinks a lot worse to me as the pick didn't seem to make a lot of sense at the time and it was considered a huge reach as well.
