He was a 2nd round pick...Even without the rookie wage scale, he would've got a similar deal.

William Moore was picked at the exact same spot before there was a wage scale, and his deal was 4 years 3.35 million.

2nd round picks are awesome. If anything they might be the most valuable selections we've made in the Dimitroff era.

Curtis Lofton
William Moore
Peter Konz

3 good players who you get for 4 years at less than $1m/yr. Plus Tony Gonzalez who wasn't as cheap but has still brought it.

For a franchise that doesn't like risky players, I'm surprised we don't go all New England and trade our 1st for a pair of 2nds each year.

hmmm... I disagree with that cause our 1st rounders have been pretty good too.. (outside of Jerry)

but Mitchell, Robertson and Ewing have been signed too.

I'm aware of small sample size arguments - but our picks outside the top 6 of round 1 (hopefully we won't be picking top 6 in future):

Round 1: 1/3 (Weatherspoon - missed on Baker & Jerry)
Round 2: 3/3 (Moore, Lofton, Gonzalez)

Seems like a win for round 2 to me...

Oh, and I wanted Dorsey and Brohm so my opinions are best off not listened to. Razz

But you can't take out the top 6 guys...
Guys still in the NFL, Guys still on team
Round 1 - 5/5 100%, 5/5 100%
Round 2 - 3/3 100%, 2/3 67%
Round 3 - 6/7 86%, 6/7 86%
Round 4 - 2/2 100% , 2/2 100%
Round 5 - 7/7 100%, 6/7 86%
Round 6 - 3/4 75%, 3/4 75%
Round 7 - 3/5 60%, 3/5 60%

So for the most part, the team has actually done pretty guy at building the team from draft picks in general

Well, you and I will have to disagree. I don't find anything particularly impressive in a player still being on the team. I want difference makers or good role players, not just guys taking up a roster spot

exactly. I agree but sometimes, if a 7th round player is on the roster for 2-3 years, that's more than what the average 7th round pick does.
