With the injury, i would imagine the odds of him becoming great are even less.
Yeah, its a risk/reward type of deal. When you're a good team with some depth you have the luxury of taking a few risks like Carradine. He was a sure fire 1st rounder without that injury. We kind of picked McDonald under similar circumstances. He was a late-1st, early-2nd prospect but dropped to late 3rd because of injury.
Don't get me wrong, I agree with what you're saying. It hurts the team in the short term to have high draft choices not contributing. Hopefully it pays off long term.
Yeah but i'm not so sure our depth on the Dline was that great. With RJF and Soap departing, and now Ian out, we could of used some big bodies right about now. The only thing we did to bolster the Dline for this year after RJF and Soap left was to sign Dorsey. That wasn't enough, clearly. We are forced into playing Jerod-Eddie now.
