Espn.com Len Pasquarelli on injuryed players who should help there teams.
Quote:
LB Boss Bailey (games missed: 16) and WR Charles Rogers (games missed: 15), Detroit: The Lions passed on linebacker Derrick Johnson in the draft, perhaps a sign that they feel Bailey (knee) is not only healed but ready to step up his game. A lot of scouts feel Bailey is soft but the weak-side 'backer does possess the kind of athletic skills to be a playmaker at the position. Rogers has missed the bulk of the past two seasons after twice fracturing his collarbone. Detroit officials insist the choice of wideout Mike Williams in the first round was not an indication of concerns over Rogers' long-term viability. If he can stay on the field, Rogers will help give the Lions one of the best young receiver corps in the league.



Nothing we did not already know.

One way of looking at is that we get the benefit of the 2004 and the 2002 draft class in one year.

Never would have thought of it that way. Good one Tom.

What do they mean by soft, injury prone?

Another faux paus is that Bailey is the strong side backer, not the weakside. You'd think these guys would know all this!

For sure! If he is unable to perform, we may be in for a difficult year on D.
