I know this topic has been played out but coming down this stretch run and seeing who is playing big parts i thought it would be worth a look again.
Jake Long- HOME RUN one of only 2 1st rounders last year to go to the pro bowl. Pro Bowl LT for i donno the next 12 years. And a major reason we have been successful in the last two years
Phillip Merling- HOME RUN got off to a slow start in his rookie season but once he recovered from his injury he has been beastly. An anchor who has been a major contributor
Chad Henne- HOME RUN starting QB with a 7-3 record after taking over for Penny. Calm, composed and a hard worker not to mention a leader. the future and leader of this team this season and for years to come
Kendall Langford- HOME RUN started day one and has been consistent holding down his side will be there for the next _______ insert number there years. A big part of our line rotation this year.
Shawn Murphy- maybe not a home run but this dude was going into the season as the starter and gave us depth we didnt decide to keep him but he will contribute at an NFL for years.
Jalen Parmele- ok this is prob one that leaves you scratching your head could have been used this year so not good on this one
Donald Thomas- HOME RUN freaking stud who manhandles people didnt have him last year this year we have noticed his presence this guy will be here for years and a stud. Big part of our success this year.
Lex Hilliard- Big time contributor in special teams and will be a bigger part of the run game as the season goes on. has made the most of his chances
Lionel Dotson- hasnt done much but we have crazy depth at DE
Bess- Yes he was part of our draft, probably our best receiver and an extremely hard worker who is playing a major major major part in our O this season
Dan Carpenter- MONEY is his nickname huge part of our success and contributes weekly
11 players drafted and brought in 8 of them are major contributors and play key roles in one way or the other.
Vontae Davis- HOME RUN starter with 3 picks and a big hitter who will be a staple of this D for 10 years. Major part of our success this year
Pat White- EH prob the worst pick so far lets see how it plays out
Sean Smith- has had a few rough games but HOME RUN starter from day one and has had to play some of the best and i mean BEST WR's in the league in his rookie year and along with Vontae will be our bookend for years and year
Pat Turner- been active only a few times look for him next year maybe think what you will about him now
Brian Hartline- HOME RUN this kid is intense and a total gamer, great receiver and big time special teams player and a major contributor to our success.
John Nalbone- eh kinda pick hasnt really panned out but i always thought of him as a project and may contribute later.
Chris Clemons- I want to say HOME RUN but i cant yet he has all the skills but we have alot of money invested in front of him which i think we will get rid of soon so he is given a chance call me next year
Andrew Gardner- EDIT sorry i was thinking of Nate Gardner he hasnt been active yet
JD Folsom- nothing out of him yet lets see how he develops
8 players drafted/brought in and 4 home runs and lots of potential
so out of both of his drafts thus far....
19 players selected 12 of them are either studs and future Pro Bowl guys or major contributors to this team and their success this year.
This team is making a run even with all of these injuries because of the great ability of our FO to find young NFL ready talent.
GO FINS LETS KEEP IT UP AND KEEP TURNING SOME HEADS...
