Once again I thank you for your feedback. There were some outstanding points made and some questions brought up that deserve discussion. What I hope to do over the next few entries is to get you caught up on where we’re at, describe some of the thought processes that brought us to this point and then move forward with where we might take the team in the future. I’d like to set a “baseline” so to speak and I do feel a lot of your inquiries will be answered as we move ahead. So just have a little patience, but keep bringing me your thoughts.
Georgia Bulldog George Foster was selected with our first round pick in ’03. Foster was the perfect combination of size, speed and length (6’5” 330 lbs 5.03 40 yd dash, freakish numbers for the position) and had been a 2-year starter for the Bulldogs in the SEC. We were looking to replace Ephraim Salaam and felt firm that we could do just that with the selection of Foster. However, remember no OL has come into our system as a rookie and started right away (1st round through FA). NFL.com and Street and Smith’s both saw George as a first-round pick and Kiper, ESPN and FOX all projected him in the second prior to our own selection.
