Upside is all in the mind of the beholder until shown to be true.
Amobi Okoye had "upside". Flashed talent his rookie year too. How'd that "upside" work? Coming out of college Brady Quinn had "upside". Hell some folks thought David Carr had upside.
I know you gotta put your chips on rookies sometime or you'll end up like George Allen with a team full of old farts. I get that.
But I'm not trading proven commodities like Watt and Joseph on a maybe. No matter how much that maybe is hyped.
Like I said, each to his own.
