It's an absolute joke to say any rookie is going to be better than the best at their position. We didn't really know exactly what we had in Patrick Willis when we drafted him, but I don't recall anyone saying he would be better than Ray Lewis. He turned out to be better than anyone expected, but players like him don't come along every year. The raider fans think that because McClain was the best at his position in this year's draft class, he must
be a Willis-like talent.
They don't actually think things through, that much is obvious.
