The optimism on this board never ceases to amaze me. The guy is a 5th round pick chances are he is only good enough to be 3rd string. The pick never made sense from the beginning. Mckillop is known for his instinctual and cerebral skills sets. The knock on him coming out was his size and speed. The position we need someone to fill is the defenses equivalent of a fullback. His job is to take on blockers so Willis can be free to roam sideline to side line. Thanks McClueless.
To all you guys touting McKillop, the coaches see him on a regular basis, not just on game day. They watch him practice, break down his tape and know his football knowledge. If they are not confident in his ability to take over for Takeo, I'm certainly not.
Stop wishing for all these super low round picks to become anything more than back ups and camp fodder, you'll save yourself a lot of heart ache.
