shhh, dont say that out loud. I think he is the steal of the draft and you will get tar and feathered about his off the field problems and how he is an underachiever and half arsed it through combine workouts.... plus he smokes pot (along with about 50% of the NFL) but since he got caught, he is a bad man.

By the writers own admission, only about 36 players out of 339 selected in the 6th round from '94-'02 have been significant multi year contributers in the NFL .

So, on average once every 9 years or so a team selects a player in the 6th round that turns out to be a gem.
Not exactly my definition of "value"

The fact that Hawthorne smoked pot just before the combine (when he knew he would be tested) doesnt make him a bad man.
Just a very, very stupid one.

Actually I think the opposite... do the math from HS to College (all divisions) to draft day to actually making a roster.... you go from millions to less than 2,000.... pretty elite group no matter how you get there.... and to be selected and have a productive career from the 6th round is the ultimate value in the play for pay game of the NFL....

More "value" news according to SN...

"23.2 percent of the players on rosters last September had entered the league as college free agents"

:lol:, i kno.

I can understand the 'he takes plays off' arguement, but he'll get his head sorted in the pros and be very productive.

Interesting piece on the draft and how the better teams at evaluating talent secure great values in the 6th round.... no Dolphins on the list.

Some good players listed. also i don't think they should have put Punters on the list. I mean come on, Punters are suppost to get drafted in the later rounds so your not really finding a hidden gem there.
