Way too early to conclude and DEFINITELY not enough to go on.
Meaning - There is still hope!
I think that draft definitely needs 3 years before it can be graded. AJ should get more opportunities and will have an offseason to bulk up a bit. I'm not holding my breath, but I think we will get much more out of him in 2013.
LMJ is solid and will probably team up with Hunter to be our long term running back solution. He could also replace Ginn as punt returner next year.
Robinson and Fleming are the ones that could make this a good draft:
Robinson - a great cover guy. Could be a true FS. My thought is that we will lock up Dashon Goldson to a long term deal, let Whitner walk when his contract is up and then let Robinson start at FS. That would allow us to move Goldson to SS, a more natural position for him. I'm most excited about Robinson in this draft.
Fleming - we need him to step up and be our #3 OLB. Haralson is great and under contract for 2013, but he's expensive and could start elsewhere.
I'm thinking both of these guys will be starters or significant contributers in 2014, replacing Whitner and Haralson and freeing up lots of cap space.
