What are the chances we get a 7th rounder as productive as Cam?
BY "productive," do you mean poor run defense and one game of successful pass rushing against a rapidly declining has been? He looked like he was improving, but he hadn't produced anything yet, and he was a waste of space on STs. Would not suit this year without 1, maybe 2 injuries at OLB.
Truth is, most 7th rounders don't even make it out of camp. So by " productive" I mean a solid back up with potential upside to be more in the future. You don't expect guys picked where Cam was to become All-Pros, but if they can become off the bench solid starters you should be stoked.
And sure it was only one game, but in that one game he showed amazing dominance. Don't forget the blocked and returned punt for a TD. Starks is declining, but basically made him look like a paraplegic.
Anyway, if this is what coach wants, than fine, but I just don't see the value in a 7th pick. Chances are that 7th will be wasted.
