Both Matt Barrows and Grant Cohn have said that Crabtree's teammates seem to like him and that nobody on the team ever seems to have a problem with him. I think Crabtree is basically an introvert with an image problem. People outside the locker room are passing judgement on something they're not in a position to understand. Whether or not he was worth the #10 pick remains to be seen, but work ethic does not appear to be the issue. Feel free to judge his performance on Sundays, but why don't you let his teammates and his coaches be the judge of his character?
He's definitely not worth that pick. We have seen that. More of a mid 2nd to 3rd round guy on attitude, work ethic, durability, team player, sacrifice for the team. No way he was worth top 10.
