I couldn't agree more. This is not a superbowl team (in my opinion) yet. Nor is the front office that great at picking talent that can play right away. However, what they do seem good at doing is picking playings that would be higher draft selections if not for injuries. They seem to be willing to take a chance when other teams move on from those players.
So keep the safety, let him learn in the "classroom", rehab, get stronger and let's see where we are two years from now. JMO...
