I agree that the Joppru pick is unfairly bashed as a poor (rather than unproductive) pick. No injury history, nothing to suggest his injuries weren't real, just a failure to have the opportunity to show his talents on an NFL level.
You never hear the same sentiments regarding Charles Spencer, yet their contributions to the Texans were near identical (2 games started for Spencer, 0 games started for Joppru).
