honestly that's as much as any team could hope for out of a 5th round pick

that being said, it did seem a bit silly to take a QB like him that high without trying to utilize his athletic ability more rather than just develop him strictly as a backup QB
Naa, he was worth a 5th-round pick. Well worth the gamble. Before tearing
his knee up he was a Heisman contender and his team was consider a
legit possible contender to win it all. So, he didn't develop. Had he, we might
only had a good back up but we could have had trade bait for a 1st round pick.
That's well worth a 5th-round pick, considering most our picks that late
don't usually even make the team.

Chris Scott - Is he really our current starter at LT?
Joe Burnett - yea, who?
Frank Summers - turd
Dennis Dixon -
Cam Stephenson - poop
Omar Jacobs - rubbish
Nathanial Adibi - crap-a-licious
Brian St. Pierre - fart
Vernon Hayes - actually not a bad pick. Produced some.

You get the picture
