I doubt he's suggesting we take him 30th overall. If you get a guy late who has skills and talent, you can coach up the areas he's weak at. If he doesn't get better in practice, you release him and no damage done (low risk/high reward concept). Let's face it, most guys that get picked late have 1 or more glaring deficiencies, whether it be in talent, size, speed, fundamentals, personal issues or whatever so you already know you're getting a less than stellar prospect. It's just a matter of what those issues are and how good they can potentially become IF they can get those deficiencies corrected. That's essentially what the 6th and particularly the 7th round is all about and if I'm not mistaken, I believe that's where he's suggesting we pick a guy like this.
