he went the same year that Vernon did, but in the 3rd round, I remember thinking maybe we could have been better off with him, but I never really heard his name much after he was drafted.
Alot of people felt that way.
Hindsight is 20/20..........we should have taken haloti ngata instead of VD cause we drafted D. Walker in the same draft.
I still like Vernon though and I hope he has a breakout year. But Ngata would have been so much better for us.
Honestly man, my friend is a HUGE Ravens fan and there isn't a day that goes by that I didn't wish that we had Ngata......imagine the possibilities with him anchoring our D-Line......I agree, I like Vernon as well and also hope this is his year....but wow, having Ngata would be insane
