Point taken. Still don't believe he was a better prospect than Posey. It's an injury problem, but not one he was likely to incur as it was totally unrelated to his previous injury.
Had he not been injured, Posey could have been what DeAndre was last season as I doubt we'd have drafted a WR in the first.
