I thought Robert Picard was going to be an elite d man as well. He seemed to have it all, size,mean streak, looked mobile at that level, but he never quite sustained it.
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.
