That pick was awful from the moment it was made.
Part of is had to do with injuries and part of it had to do with depth chart. When he was drafted noone expected the team to be as bad as they were leading to Doughty. And the last few years the Kings defense corps really hasnt seen too many injuries that would have necessitated a call up for a player of his style.
