The way I see it, players in their 20's can grow, and players with redeeming qualities grow on you.
Strait has obviously winning some people over. He's no Doughty, but as a defensively capable "Martinek 2.0" he has more than a small chance to stick on the Island as it's an unknown amount of time in which the 'linebackers' Snow's drafted (Reinhart/Pelech/Mayfield/Pedan) work their way up the depth chart - likely 2-3 seasons, barring impressive camps and injuries.
He may not be "Mr. Right," but obviously he's "Mr. Right Now." So far, I have no qualms about that until he gives me one.
