Picard? My (few) memories of him are that he was mobile, aggressive... Yet couldn't really play defense.
I don't know if it was cut and dried like that, I think that he just didn't get better. Some players break in, look good and don't improve. He seemed a bit deliberate if maybe that explains things, he wasn't real crisp in any aspect of the game. Even looking at his numbers, you wonder what happened.
btw, I think he's the answer to the trivia question as to who Lafeur was supposed to have had dinner with before his urban legendary accident.
