What a wasted first round pick. This franchise needs to get out of making decisions like that if they ever want to contend for a championship.
The entire draft class of 2007 was a complete waste as was 2008 (besides Brown) which is why I think we're screwed no matter what we do because we have the same moron drafting as we did then. We got one good player in 2 whole drafts.
