Crabtree signed 5 weeks in and he is still the only draft pick contributing. Now I know he was a first round pick but you can't keep missing in rounds 3-7 and hope to compete.

I think it's pretty far fetched to expect draft picks round 3 and up are ready to do much in the first couple of years. If they were, they would be 1st and 2nd round picks.. there are exceptions of course.
But look @ the players we have now, they are starting to play well even though we drafted them a few years ago.
just to name a few. All turning into quality players. We still have a lot of players yet to develop.
reggie smith (FS or SS anyone?)
Scott McKillop (will be a starter for a long time after spikes)
Cody Wallace (hopefully can step up @ RG next year)
I think thats pretty damn good percentage of players after rounds 1 and 2 to have being quality players on your team. Considering how many busts there are. GOOD JOB MCCLOUGHAN
