Who's to say that if we had picked Etem instead of Hishon it wouldn't have been Etem who got the career threatening injury and that we wouldn't be having this exact same conversation with the names in other places? Hishon has great wheels and hands to, and before the injury he had a great knack for getting into the dirty areas and creating danger, if he still has those pieces when he comes back and doesn't have the fear, Hishon could still end up better than Etem. I doubt it given the severity of his injury and the long layoff, but Hishon absolutely had the tools to warrant taking him over Etem.
