No, no you're missing the point. Rookie Pro Bowlers aren't common place, but
they aren't rarities either - Moss, Urlacher, Shockey come to mind in recent
years. This 2004 draft class was supposed to be legendary, one of the greatest ever, the crop of college talent for the ages. But outside of some hidden gems like D-Rob & Vilma, production on the field was very disappointing and few rose to the surface. With the hype this draft had, you'd expect some to reach national stardom their rookie year, but instead we got underachievers for the most part. The most hyped rookie after the season started, Big Ben, had some descent performances, but then collapsed and was a total choke job his last 2 games of the year.
