3. James Harrison took four years to figure things out. Wes Welker & Yancey Thigpen were both cut (by the Chargers) and ended up being Pro Bowl caliber players. In other words, in two years, our thoughts very well could be that Mike Adams was actually a very good choice to have made.
I think you're treading in dangerous waters (speaking of water, it's 40 degrees here you San Diego, ocean having, beach-going bastard) here. When is the cutoff for prospects after they haven't shown any tangible progression? I realize second round picks are given more leeway and leash than say a fifth round pick, but when do we say enough is enough?

I hope you're right about Spence. Lavonte is arguably the best WLB in the NFL, and if Spence is as good or even close, we're going to have a special player on our hands.
