In response to pcmIV's comment:
I just looked quickly at everyone picked in the 2nd round after Wilson. Wth is the OP talking about. I don't even believe in these woulda coulda shouldas, but no one on the list I looked at seems to be some huge impact player thus far.
Exactly!!! Basing an assessment on contribution to date, this post is kinda ridiculous. Wilson was picked at 48. He's now a starter with 30 tackles, 21 solos and 3 ints. Let's see what the following picks did so far.
49 K Reyes (DT) is not a starter - 7 tackles
50 I Pead (RB) has had 4 run attempts - I am happy with NWE's RBs
51 J Worthy (DT) not a starter - 9 tackles
52 Z Brown (LB) I'm sorry, but Hightower and Jones were much better defensive picks
53 D Still (DT) according to ESPN is third in the depth chart, has 14 tackles
54 R Broyles (WR) has had 13 receptions
55 P Konz (C) starting as a G. I have no idea what stats to assess a G, but I assume he's doing well
56 M Adams (OT) Another OL who seems to be doing fine
57 B Osweiler
58 L David (LB) Defintely productive, but again no regrets with Hightower and Jones
59 V Curry (DE) 3rd on RDE depth
The three closest CBs are
62 C Hayward - 17 tackles 4 INTs
65 T Johnson - 6 tackles 1 INT
66 J Robinson - 37 tackles, 1 INT. It's documented on MB's draft thread that I wanted this guy. To date however, I would not say Josh was a better pick. Wilson
73 B Taylor - SD has a really bad yet ESPN does not stats on him. Did he even play yet?
Who's been a better pick? Or in NWE's case, who should they have picked instead? Even on hindsight, it's ridiculous at this point to say this kid was a wasted pick.
