Nothing wrong with taking Hollings. We had Stacey Mack and a cast of nobodies at that time at running back and since you can't manufacture players like you do on the xbox it was not a crazy pick. Add in the fact that this was an extra expansion pick that was traded down from a 4th rounder over two years and we didn't 'lose' a 2nd rounder when we picked him, I think all this crying is silly. If we didn't take Hollings we would still need a RB. We had extra picks in our first two years so we took a developmental RB with one of them. Not such a crime.
Guys like Stepen Davis, Reubin Droughns, and Priest Holmes did nothing of note their first 3 years in the NFL. I think we can be patient on a guy his first full year away from major knee surgery. At least some of us can.
