I guess Anton Landers is........but the jury is still out on him!
I am not saying Stu is a bad scout........but he has not proven to be a great talent evaluator as expressed previously but he is better than Pendergast.
I think it is way to early to say that Stu's picks have been busts......
Did you think that players picked in the 2nd round would come into the league and dominate in their first 3-5 years? They are second rounder's for a reason.
Stu has drafted some pretty respectable players in the 2nd round that can still pan out and that are currently performing pretty well.
