Someone said it before, if Bowers makes it to the 20th pick, it means his knee is trashed and we don't want him. If his knees are not a major concern, he'll be gone long before we pick
Brady wasn't injured. Bowers was the number 1 consensus pick all off season. If he falls then the injury is serious. It's not about scouts opinion, it's about doctor's medical evaluation. Your Brady comparison is horrible. Fail.
So using that same logic......Tom Brady got passed over almost 200 times so I guess that means he must be no good. If he was good then someone would have drafted him?Thats retarded logic. I'm not saying we draft an injury case. I'm saying what he had done was NOT a signficant injury or surgery and after all he had a hell of a year on that "bad" knee. What i'm saying is that the guy is a great talent and we should go with our evaluation on him.No one else picked him therefore we shouldn't pick him logic is very dumb and a good way to miss out on a potential cornerstone, pending our own evaluation.
Bower's doctor said that his surgery while not full blown microfracture surgery had "elements" of it. One of the few NFL player I know of off hand who has played well for a period of time after microfracture surgery is Kellen Winslow. Here are some players who had it. http://subscribers.footballguys.com/2009/09colstoninjury.phpMicrofracture Surgery and NFL Players (Active and Retired)Given that the information above focuses on all patients including your Average Joe, I thought it pertinent to take a look at the success rate in NFL players. Interestingly enough, a majority of the population consisted of non-skill position players or aging veterans. I'll walk through the players that I found and note the relevance of each.•Kellen WinslowIn January 2007, Kellen Winslow had microfracture surgery on his knee at the age of 23. Winslow recovered quickly and had his best season as a pro in 2007 with 82 receptions, 1,160 yards, and five TDs. Very similar position to Colston and roughly the same age, which could be indicative of Colston's recovery. Two potentially indicative points to consider: 1) Winslow successfully returned to All-Pro form, and 2) Winslow recovered quickly after having surgery in January 2007.
and the logic of "the other guys didnt pick him so we shouldn't either" ISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS retarded. otherwise we wouldn't have 2 critical pieces to our trinity: Mike and LeGarrett.
