I wouldn't say these guys really under-performed, it's more like look at the person selecting them at those spots. I remember seeing Ted Ginn drafted and everyone was like HUH???? Balmer was a head-scratcher too.Crabtree was "because we couldn't pass it up ...." despite everyone else staying away. Alex Smith was the shotgun wedding (forced to take the #1 pick). Anthony Davis the jury is still out.
Huh...Ted Ginn was drafted by the Dolphins.
Now we have three former 1st rounders at WR. Ginn, Michael Crabtree, and Braylon Edwards.
Pretty cool, huh? I really hope Ginn can get things going this year. It sounds like he's catching a lot of deep passes in training camp.
