    And for the record I like Klug. He's had some great moment for us.

    I hope that's the case and not the Solomon case where we try to find him a role/position and fail. Klug is a great interior rusher but undersized and has to eat like crazy to keep his weight on. I imagine he is easily fatigued because of it.

    The way I say it is when you are a specialty player like Karl Klug is and still are able to give a team good production (and 10.5 sacks in two years is good production) then you are worth your draft pick. Klug is a valuable guy to have in 3 and >5 situations and if Casey and Morgan can step up he will be able to play in more of them.

    If he can become our 4th DE on the depth chart then that is just gravy on the biscuit.

    Yup I agree. It just seemed like last year we let that talent waste away on the bench, then we did the position change in the off season. Seemed bubbly

    I don't really consider late round draft picks to be "busts". Harper sure.

    Scott Pioli joked that he was a such a genius he passed on Tom Brady 5 times before drafting him.

    In short you just need some luck in those late rounds. We can call Floyd Reese a genius for drafting Finnegan but he passed on him over 6 rounds before he pulled the trigger.

    I have no problem with 6 and 7th rd picks ending up on the practice squad. It's the dozens of 3rd and 4th rd picks that have failed that really hurt. Primarily at 3 positions WR, DB and LB.

    Its really pretty astounding how successful we have been when you look at out mid round draft 'busts'.

    Green Bay, has 51 of 53 that have never been anything other than a Packer. Sure that has caused them some problems, but **** that is amazing.
