I think we did good to, and love the pick. I actually predicted Pittman or Claypool in the 2nd. I watched a decent amount of tape on him, and several games in general. He did struggle at times vs bigger/physical DBs. One of his least flattering games was vs ND, and didn't do well vs Oregon and Iowa either. He destroyed lesser teams though. IIRC, he obliterated Utah. Not a great game for Blackmon lol.
Only point is, he'll need to improve off the line, and his ability to bully will decrease. He'll absolutely be an upgrade from the start over last year though.
I edited my lost to reflect that.
Yeah, it can be argued either way.
My reasoning is I give a bump to the guys that can create their own opportunities. Centers usually need help from ball handlers to reach peak efficiency.
Kareem no doubt could be #1, with all his accomplishments.
