    But the point remains. He's not an all pro, but he's not the total waste people portray him as, either. He is/was a well spent 4th round draft pick.

    Also, trying to pass Collins off as your avg every day UDFA is being dishonest. If he didn't have that crap hanging over him on draft day, he would have been a first rounder. Even Leary would have been a 3rd-4th rounder if not for the degenerative knee that scared teams off. It's held up pretty well for him so far.
    I agree Free isn't great but he holds his own with most of the rest who plays that position.

    Im simply contrasting draft positions as you mentioned Free being a fourth rounder.
    We merely found some great talent outside of the draft, much less the higher rounds, including the fourth. Regardless of the scouting reports, natural talent, bum knee conditions or potential legal entanglements. Free may not be as bad as he gets berated, but he is the glaring weakness on this unit. No more, no less. It's not good, it's not bad. It simply is what it is. I struggle watching him get beat so often, and I wish we could address it sooner than later.

    Good as Collins is, Leary has outplayed him at every opportunity. The running game has clearly been better with Leary.

    Collins is a truly rare athlete. I can't imagine he isn't as quick as Free.

    RT is where Collins should have been all along.

    Not much at all.

    We really don't help out a lot period.

    The RB have been chipping a lot more the last couple of weeks and the TE is called on to block one on one some but they don't really help the OT's much.
