Everyone is rooting for this kid. We want to think that CB is the smartest GM in the NFL and he saw this kid when no one else did. What we should really hope is that once camp starts, the best 53 players they have end up on the roster. This doesn't always happen. GM's and coaches get attached to certain players, usually because of where they were drafted, and don't evaluate their performance correctly. It's like in poker. Once the money is on the table, it's not yours anymore. Once the players are in camp, everyone should be blind to the "investment" in them.

This happens every time we draft a late receiver...   Then reality happens and they aren’t very good.

I’m not saying your wrong, that does happen.  But from what we’re seeing, it happens less under BallardV/Reich.  Basham and Banner are good examples.  
 

I do think they spent more time predraft evaluating the player than UDFAs so they may take more time to see if they live up to what they expect.   
 

In this case, we’re talking about a guy who was drafted for his potential.  Even if he makes the 53 he’s probably not going to see many snaps.  They may feel an extra S or ST player is more important, even if MS is a better prospect.
