They can be appropriate picks and still not work out. That Shaheen was that soft and couldn't step it up in year 2 was a major disappointment. His 1st year #s were not at all bad for a small school TE coming into the NFL.
My biggest gripe with him was he seemed to be a reach at the time and I thought WR was a much bigger need and JuJu was better. Lest we forget that was the year we had a historically bad WR group led by Kendall Wright and Josh Freaking Bellamy. Imagine that. So I have no idea why Pace would pick TE over WR unless it was to sabotage Fox and Loggains.
Well, Shaheen technically made it in the NFL but severely underperformed his draft position as the numbers also predicted. And that was also the final year of Slaytics as the guy who was putting out the analysis got a gig as the UCLA director of player personnel.
