Not to sound like a homer, but Dontarrious is also going to be a Pro Bowler in my mind and we got him in the second round, AFTER getting UDZ in the first...I'll take both of them over DJ, no matter how good he is (and I agree that he is very good)...remember, Dontarrious was not considered the best linebacker on his team either, but he was the SEC Scholar-Athlete of the Year last year...hmmm, smart AND fast, great combo to have on our defense.
I remeber the depate, i heard alot of negatives about him so it scared me away from wanting to draft him. I was all in favor of Vilma who is doin pretty well with the jets. I had no IDEA udeze would fall to us, but i like the guy alot, i was listening to him on Access the other night i really like him, he seems like hes got a football head on him, hes a hard worker, he wants to be the best, i like his mentallity.
Well that just goes to show you cant always listen to scouting reports and whatnot, look at moss. This DJ could be a pro bowler soon.
He wasnt there when minn drafted was he? I'm pretty sure he was gone.
