From an injury standpoint, the last guy that we whiffed on that I can recall was maybe Jason Williams, but before that the OT Jacob Rogers.
Of course, the bigger problem with Williams was he couldn't play.
I haven't heard one source indicate teams are red flagging Barron because of his injuries. He has shot up the charts, just the opposite of most players with injury concerns.
You have completely missed the point that was made. Not sure how else it can be explained. It is not about ONE injury, it is about a propensity to chronic injury. And LaFleur also did not get flagged for his injuries either.
And Jason Williams did not have a chronic injury, or any injury when he was drafted. Not sure why you even mention him.
