Teams were apparently turned off by their responses and they fell to 8 and the second round respectively. Well by the time it gets to the 4th round and lower I couldn't care less about character/attitude and would much rather just go for the guy that has the most skill. Even with a guy like Linus Omark at least we got half a productive season out of him, which is better than most 4th rounders.
I disagree 100%. In the later rounds, I'd rather take the guy with character. You can have all the skill in the world, but if you don't work at it, you'll never amount to anything. I'd rather get a 4th liner who's going to go out and do whatever it takes than another Omark who just expects to float around and be gifted everything
