Was Crabtree Really a Steal?

How can someone drafted at the top of the first round be a steal? CB Cooper was a steal...though we didn't recognize it. Alex Boone was a steal. Lattimore may turn out to be a steal. But Crabtree has been disappointing so far for his draft position. Compared to AJ Green...

Last year he started to play up to his draft position, but...injured again. As much as I loved the pick and think he is very, very talented...no, he was not a steal.

Big difference in draft position with AJ.. #4 overall vs Crab at #10 overall.. Top 5 picks are supposed to be surefire stars in the league.. After that it gets a little more iffy
