....look at who was still out there at the same point in the draft.

Not overwhelming me with players any better than him. As a matter of fact, a lot of the dudes taken after are already out of football.

Shady McCoy, Phil Loadholt, not much more than that. So, in hindsight, he wasn't such a bad pick considering who else was still available.
