If he's not a star in the first 9 weeks of the season, he sucks.

Daniels is a good example. He looked very average last year, but this year seems to be a different player. Some players just take some time. Nothing can be said about Datone Jones other than he needs to keep improving. At least he has made a couple of plays so far, which is better than many draft picks do in their first few games.



But...but...but... he was a first round draft pick. If not a pro bowl caliber player he should at least be in consideration right? I mean he was a first round pick after all.

Damn Texas, I had to applaud you twice tonight on football issues. Maybe that's what you should stick to, cause your judgment on world issues is just incredibly poor.


hahahaha I was thinking the same about you. I almost applauded your Mason Crosby post just because it was the first time I saw the new pic of your cute kids.

Back to this thread, Nerdman, I didn't label Datone a bust, I just said he hadn't done much yet. And I suppose it is valid to say sometimes it takes a year or so for a D Lineman to reach his peak. I'm as hopeful as anybody, and I was thoroughly happy when we drafted him, but he is what he is - so far. If you want me to give the 2013 Draft an "incomplete" instead of a B-, fine, you got it.

I actually panned the pick at the time. I felt he was undersized for what this D ostensibly wants to do.

But let the dude's ankle heal before we judge.

I don't have any evidence for this but I think Jones bulking up so fast from his draft weight (280-283 from various draft articles) to 295 when he reported to camp affected his injury recovery.

The undersized thing is a joke. He's the same size as guys like Justin Smith, and several others. His size has nothing to do with his performance, that's for sure.

Jones could have been seen as a reach at the time but he will develop. He will be a great pro I believe but many people said he will a progression over the year. Daniels has improved a lot from year 1 to year 2, and I expect the same from Jones next year. He just can't hurt us with penalties like he had against the Vikings. That is unacceptable. He will need to learn from them.

I still think Ted Thompson should trade his 1st round pick every year, I mean the guys always seem to get hurt lately. And Ted Thompson should start using FA to get o-lineman because he sure as hell can't draft them lol.


Since 2005 he has had 9 1st round picks and at first he did ok with 4 of the 1st 5 not injured ( bustin Harrell the only one injured) but the last 4 all have been injured.

Keep in mind, he also drafted Bahktiari.

Sherrod did not have a significant injury history. He just got caught in a pile and his leg snapped. Could have happened to anyone.
