Coming out of USC the biggest question about Reggie was durability. When the Saints took him #2 overall there was pretty high expectations for him. Is he worth the #2 overall pick? Looking back at it now I would say know. the durability issue has come up. He previously hurt his knee and he got hurt again and is out 6 weeks? For a player thatrelies on speed that doesn't fair well. I consider Reggie a bust simply because he has not been able to stay healthy and is not a fuiltime starter. I expect more of a #2 overall pick.
I mean... wasn't really his fault he got landed on like that in such an awkward position. It was just an unlucky tackle/fall. But I do agree with the durability issue overall. I don't know if he's had a full year since he started? I wouldn't call him a bust though -- on every snap that he's in, the entire defense is on edge. He is a truly explosive threat to go to the house every time he touches the ball. That's hard to come by. OH, and he has a Super Bowl ring. One that is deserved because he was a catalyst for that team throughout the entire playoffs. So... I would say he was worth the pick.
