    If there's any under performing player I'd bet on, it's Jake Locker.

    The guy was hurt all year long from week-1, never got that shoulder fixed, and it kept popping out every week. How could anyone in pain with a terrible team do well?

    He's also got the right mindset, so like I've said a hundred times, lets see how he does with a running game, and a half decent O-Line, he's had none of those things yet.

    I hated him as a pick because he showed minimal improvement over 4 years. The count is now 6.

    He is that underperforming guy at work that keeps getting chances because he shows up on time, works OT, fills in shifts at the last minute, takes the Fed Ex's downstairs, makes a fresh pot of coffee when there is still 1 cup left in the first pot, customers like him, etc, etc.

    2008 -- DeSean Jackson -- I wanted us to go Jackson in round 1 and Chris Johnson in round 2. We needed play makers for Vince Young at the time. I actually thought we were going to get both before the Eagles picked Jackson.

    2009 -- Hakeem Nicks/Kenny Britt -- I thought it was a toss up between those two guys.

    2010 -- Derrick Morgan -- I'm still a Derrick Morgan believer.

    2011 -- Jake Locker -- He was my favorite QB in the class that year and I still think he will develop into an elite QB.

    2012 -- David DeCastro -- I still hate the fact we passed on him even though I like Kendale Wright.

    I remember cussing out my TV thinking we were going take Blaine Gabbert over Jake Locker

    I remember wanting Taylor Mays too. I thought he was going to be a beast in the NFL.
