With Tyson Jackson making our defensive stats look like we have 10 players on any given defensive play, Matt Cassel looking like and average QB, at best, Mike Vrabel on the verge of retirement (I include Cassel and Vrabel in the 09 class because of the pick we gave up for them), Magee, J. Williams and Q. Lawrence on the roster bubble, D Washington, Colin Brown and firmly entrenched on the bench, it appears the only SOLID long- term solution picked up in the '09 draft was Ryan Succop. While the 2010 draft of Berry, DMC, J. Arenas, K. Lewis, Moeaki, Asamoah and Sheff looks to have yielded at least 3 rookie starters, 3 solid contributors and 1 high upside project (so long as the neck injury isn't too serious).
In light of this, admittedly, limited data the 2009 draft class appears to be headed for bust status and the 2010 class looks like a hit. If this does hold true and we see no signifigant contributions from the 2009 class but the 2010 class yields 4 starters and 2-3 signifigant contributors, will you be able to forgive Pioli and Co. for their 2009 bomb?
Will a strong 2010 draft make up for a terrible 2009 draft class?
