Exactly, Wade/Vance makes those calls. Word is, and has been, that Harris plays slow.

And no one noticed that before they spent a 2nd round pick on him?

Not only is our second round pick sitting, so is our first round from this year.

For some reason this Franchise has had a hard time valuing CB's no matter who the coach has been. The Packers appreciate Pro Bowler Tramon Williams though... Dude couldn't make our team.

Brandon Harris is a Wade's pick, just as Mercilus is.

You sure? I mean, our GM says DBs are his specialty

Wade's records on CBs are not any better.

He drafted Michael Jenkins in the first round. Now in his fifth year, Jenkins became a bench player behind Brandon Carr and rookie Claiborne.

He played Jacques Reeves when Newman was hurt.

Now, he brought in Allan NoBall and played him over his own two draft picks (Harris and Carmichael.)

Just as Brooks Reed was taken ahead of Harris in that same round/year.

2nd rounders are about 50/50 hit/miss, so it's not that awful. If it makes you feel any better, the Steelers loved Harris and were attempting to trade up to get him as well.
