A potential career ending injury to Johnson 03
I was begining to think we were totally jinxed in the second rount of the draft, but how a year potentially could change things.
Flozell 98 now looks like a perennial Pro Bowler.
Gurode & Bryant 02 look like they will be players this year.
Johnson 03 looks like he has recovered from the injury.
Jones & Rogers 04 look like they may be the real deal.
I guess time will tell but it looks like we have a chance to shake the 2nd round jinx?
I'm not exactly sure what it is your complaining about with Adams from 98 till 02...02 wasnt a great yr for him, but people ragged on him with really not much reason to either...he was fine in 98, 99,00 and 01
Gurode and Bryant both had exceptional rookie seasons, and Gurode actually started at both C and G as a rookie...he had some penalties last yr but according to Parcells is having a great camp this yr, and he had a solid game last weekend. Bryant has psuedo-star potential and works hard. I really liked what I saw from Rogers last week, and Jones' 1st game was a hit...with Page we got a guy valued by everyone as a 1st rd talent late in the 2nd rd, hard to argue with their logic on taking him...he just got lazy (or lazier) as time went on...his first couple seasons werent that bad, but he was awful his last two yrs here...Pittman was a terrible move, as we got cute and passed on Brackens to trade down for the mediocre Pittman and the awful Clay Shiver...Goodrich was an outright bust, Carter was mediocre and the jury is still out on Dixon
you could do this for all 32 teams though..not just us
