to be fair, mendenhall was expected to go earlier and was considered a steal where we picked him (at the time)
not sure if tomlin really wanted him or we just took BPA. based on mendy's athletic ability, he always had the potential to be a game breaker. and call me crazy but i still think he can be that guy. he should be fully healed from his ACL injury by now, and in haley's system, i think he can be a star
