Here's a question: Why is it taken as an article of faith that Campbell has "franchise" potential? That was only said of him by the front office immediately after they drafted him as their explanation/justification for the pick. Then the guy behind the pick got fired. Is that the only place that people are getting the "franchise" player label from, or is that their own impression too?
Just because it probably wasn't the best pick doesn't mean Campbell isn't what they said he was. Dallas probably should have taken Fowler, he fit a need better and was a lot safer, however Campbell still has elite potential. He's crazy talented, there was only 3 players in that draft who had definite top 5/10 potential for their positions in that draft. The first two were the top 2 picks, and the other was Campbell.
