Trust them and enjoy the pick. He's clearly very happy to be a part of the organization.
I've watched him extensively and he's a special player and could very well end up being much better than Joe Morrow.
I don't hate him. I figure it's not about who you drafted where, it's about how the develope after the draft. Nothing wrong with this pick, maybe he should have went around 10-15th, but our scouts and Shero have done an EXCELLENT job getting young D prospects. IN SHERO I TRUST!!!
