RE: what a bad draft pick

No! We need to keep him around for a year or two and have Haz and LoomBoom tell the fans that "he's making a heckofalot of progress, but after the amputation he can't run quite as fast as he used to." Some stupidity like that. One of the problems is that we don't have a Front Office.

I can't fault Haz on this. He has his own faults, but this draft smells like Mickey (Mouse, that is).

There have been a few injuries to Rookies already from other teams... does that mean those are bad picks as well, please. Injuries happen.

I think that point here Euph is that it was WIDELY known that Lyman was injury prone, about as injury prone as a player could be in college. Yes there are injuries to other rookies, but Lyman has been nothing but injured throughout his college career, while these other players weren't.

I have to agree that we wasted our 4th round pick on this patient, er player.
No way we should have picked this guy - If we needed a player with injury problems we could have gone to one we already have on the roster. Why not just convert Grant for LB to WR and save the pick.

i have to agree with spkb25......it was a wasted pick...we could have picked another CB, DT or LB to compete for a roster spot.

I think I read where this guy had like 6 surgeries in college. Also what happened to no more projects...we need people that can step right in and play. I can understand taking a chance on someone but drafting someone who has had almost as many surguries as games played? In the 4th round at that. Wow! Why not take that chance in the 6th or later.
