Okay, so Herm wasn't the best of coaches. And maybe he set us back quite a bit instead of making us the balanced team we hoped for. But with his youth movement, he did bring in lots of new players via the draft. After the jump I've listed the players drafted by Herm. Who do you think were the best players he drafted? And after looking at this list, how would you rate his drafting ability?
Not too bad...Pollard and Page are/will be NFL starters but may never reach All-Pro status. Croyle is a serviceable backup. Hali still hasn't proven to be worthy of a first round pick, but this preseason is making me cautiously optomistic.
Bowe is going to be a stud...everyone else, the verdict is still out. I certainly hope McBride pans out but we'll see.
Lots of picks, lots of hits, lots of misses. It's kinda surprising that we seem to know more of what we're getting from our 2008 picks than our 2007 picks. Dorsey is looking solid this preseason at end, Albert is Albert, Flowers, MOrgan, and Carr are top notch. Richardson, Cottam, Merritt are flops.
So, who were the best Herm picks? I'm going with Albert (1), Bowe (2), and Flowers (3).
And to make the discussion even more interesting, do you think your feelings will be the same at the end of the season? I'm thinking Albert will still be my number 1, Bowe my number 2, and Dorsey my number 3. But perhaps that's wishful thinking due the the cash he's making.
