Voted for EJ Wilson. At least Durham hung around for a while. Also, you know you suck when you're a 4th round pick and you can't last on the 2010 roster. Not only that, Seattle had a rash of injuries on the DL that season and instead of promoting Wilson, they put him on waivers. Injury excuse or not, that's a pretty easy pick.

IMO, no pick below a 4th rounder can be the worst one. You have to take a lot of fliers.
Jimmy Smith, nickle CB? The guy with 11 PDs and 2 INT's over 2 seasons? I know Rob loved Smith, but I felt completely the opposite.
I'm interested to see what Carpenter does in 2013. He was an overweight rookie in 2011 and wasn't fully recovered from a knee injury in 2012. I thought he looked pretty solid last year which is encouraging because he wasn't 100% health wise. He reminds me of the kind of O-lineman that the 49ers kill defenses with- a huge road grader that is passable at everything else.
And also, the options at #25 sucked in 2011. They sucked badly. Of all the players that went right after #25 that year, I'm not sure I'd trade Carpenter for any of them. I have to go all the way to #37 to find a player I would gladly swap Carpenter for right now. People shouldn't really treat Carpenter like a 1st round pick. That was almost a 3rd round level talent pool, IMO.
