When I was real young, a knee tear was the end; but even with today's medical advancements, three sure seems insurmountable...

Still, am pulling for the guy, just think he needs to be in a 3-4 and not down on the line where he has to anchor on that knee...

In D.A.'s 4-3, he needs to play WLB if he's unable to cover TEs effectively...

Everyone says "Well Thomas Davis could do it." Yeah, literally the only player in NFL history. Kikaha already wasn't the most explosive player. Is there any more giddy up left in that horse?

And Davis was a safety who lost a step and moved to outside linebacker at that...

Unfortunate but at least we didn't draft someone with horse parts in them AGAIN. Mind bending we wasted a pick on a player with that situation years ago but we did. Believe it was under Ditka.

Thought that was DE Greg Romeus in the 2011 draft?

Chase Lyman. He had animal parts and we drafted him in the 4th but in 05, so not Ditka.

Negatives … Medical risk, as he has undergone six surgical procedures and missed 26 games due to injuries during his career … Has good timed speed, but like most big receiver as, he struggles a bit to stay low in his pads and gets too high and erect in his release …

Sproles went 12 picks later but I will get off my soap box of drafting injured players.

Lyman, yeah, I remember thinking, why not take Cal's quarterback when he was there, but, no, we took Lyman...
