San Diego, I know it would be hard, but you could acknowledge that Baalke had a very perceptive view of Miller's capability.
Baalke has done better than I thought he would in both the draft and FA. I've said that before....
I remember being so disappointed when Cleveland took Marecic, as I was really hoping to have him. However, picking up a guy in the 7th that becomes a Pro-Bowl Alternate ended up being a great pick. I hope this is an indicator for future drafts that we will have a quality backup plan for missing out on a player, and the coaching staff to make it work.
Also, I wouldn't be surprised if we see Miller a little more involved in the passing game, perhaps taking some of the looks that Walker got.
