The team had more confidence in Pitts than you obviously have and have developed Wand to man the LT spot. AJ at the 3 looks like an astute move to me. Having Jordan Gross and Taylor Jacobs (next WR taken in the second rd that year) is less appealing to me than taking a dominating physical speciman like AJ early. Gross wasn't worth the 3rd pick either.
It is very hard to find special players after the top 10 picks. Gross is a solid Tackle but he isn't any better than Pitts is or what Wand may become.
