I haven't heard him say this, but I wish he did. I thought Carp would be ready out the gate, which he isn't. If we had to develop him, I would rather have developed someone with more upside like Manny. Carp was a good pick at the time cause we thought we needed immediate help at OLB. But with Ellis doing well there, it made the Carp pick alot more suspect.
