I understand that the past few R1 picks have been triples (not home runs):
Timmons - decent pick
Mendenspin - eh
Hood - eh
Pouncey - home run
Heyward - inc
DD - home run
BUT... I do not see a Jamain Stephens in the bunch... nor a Troy Edwards.
And, Cowher had his share of "eh" players: Chad Scott, Charles Johnson, Deon Figures...
