Honestly the last rookie who really wowed us in their first season was Reggie. I would say we could see the potential in Jordan and Ingram their first season, but thats about the extent of it.
Only problem with the Reggie deal was the contract associated with it. Hell, the "Reggie Bush Lottery" nickname for the draft tells all.
The best thing about the draft now, to me, is the new caps on rookie deals. If you miss the boat on all-star, rookie of the year types of players, you have to make up for it with proven guys with big price tags. Jimmy Graham/Carl Nicks are really the only players that have really blown me away with the price for performance ratio. But none of those players are defensive, it just seems like we are paying a premium price for crap quality there.
