    I think we all suffer from a Rookie Curiosity Syndrome. Although this is not an official DSM diagnosis, it should be considered such because for some of us our obseession is malignant. LOL!

    All fans, of all teams, in all sports fantasize and hope their rookies will be the answer to problems or elevate the team to greatness. This is especially prevalent with rookie QB's on teams where the starter is having problems. I do not know how to explain this widespread phenomena where we want people to play before the coach thinks they're ready or where we hope they are the answer to all our problems? 

     



    Yes.  People forget that Boyce was a fourth round pick.  Fourth rounders are always a long shot to be major contributors. Most years the draft really thins out by the time you get to the fourth round.

    I agree, but what about thompkins a udfa? Surely a udfa has a harder uphill climb than a 4th rounder.

    I don't know if I'd say any rookie has a harder uphill climb than any other.  I think BB starts them all on the same level playing field. The real issue is that very few fourth rounders have the talent to make that climb all the way to the top.  An even smaller percentage of UDFAs have the required talent.  Still, there are exceptions to every rule, and some fourth rounders will make it just like some UDFAs will.  My point is merely that fans tend to expect too much from fourth rounders.  Realists know that most fourth rounders aren't good enough to ever start in the NFL and will fade away after just two or three seasons.
