Came out of that vaunted wake forest Defense that was incredible, Chip Vaughn barely made it out of training camp and Arnoux lasted half a season on the active roster.
Yeah, whoever thunk up that brilliance should be kicked in the rump twice every Sunday. Just saying.

Vaunted Wake Forest Defense...

It was a telling sign when the New Orleans Saints declined to add offensive tackle Tavon Rooks to their long list of players signed to a reserve/futures contract last week.

Such a contract would have added Rooks to the 90-man offseason roster and prevented another team from poaching him.

Instead, Rooks, a Saints 2014 sixth round pick, signed a futures contract with the Arizona Cardinals on Monday.

I love that song, but watching that video made me feel gay. Lol.

Id never call a 6/7th rounder a bust.
They are that low down the draft order for a reason.

Your correct

Seattle drafted Aaron Curry

When we drafted Arnoux, many analysts said we had drafted arguably the same level of player but much less appreciated than Curry was

Aaron Curry, Stanley Arnoux and Chip Vaughn all fizzled out!

That wake forest defense was lights out on athleticism.

Aaron Curry I think. "The most can't miss project in a decade" and guess what, he missed big time.

Odd too, both Chip Vaughan and Stanley Arnoux played nearly every snap at Wake Forest and never got hurt. They were iron men!

We draft them and Vaughn goes to IR in training camp and Arnoux goes to IR before his 2nd season and neither one rebounded.

Sometimes I just think we're snake bit.

We get like 5 picks a year and miss on about 4 every year on avg. instead we trade up and get rid of depth or potential starters because the FO likes what they see and ends up being the wrong choice or a bust. I love Cooks and i think he's going to be a stud, but how do you pick a WR in the first that wasn't named Beckham, Evans, or Watkins. Especially when you have Jordan Matthews, Jarvis Landry, and just bunch of other guys in a loaded WR class... That 3rd round pick could've been Chris Borland for all we know....
