McCourty was voted 1st Team All Pro by Sporting News and 2nd Team All Pro by the AP. THAT
is pro ready. If you want to talk about long term ceiling, that's fine, but it's not what they kept saying. Wilson has been a bust, but there were other DBs taken in the first and second round after the Texans pick. I think they pushed it, drafting for need.
I am happy Jackson has improved to the point where he is, though. He's kind of the project that worked out, to contrast Amobi Ok0ye. While I'm glad he worked out, that doesn't mean I'm a fan of first round projects.
