Toss up between Roddy and Weatherspoon for surprisingly bad.

I can't say that Worrilow was a huge surprise based on his pre-season performance. I voted for Trufant because I really didn't see him being a Top-10 corner in his rookie year.

You are insane for saying Roddy was bad. Just mind boggling how someone can make that statement. Anyway I went with Trufant because I didn’t have high expectations for him. He really shined this year especially in the second half.

Worrilow came out of no where and cemented himself as a starter. Trufant played well, but as a first round pic I don't find that to be that big of a surprise.

Roddy was a non-factor for 70% of the season (much like Julio for his rookie season). He was good for the other 30%, but bnb isn't insane. Misguided maybe, but not insane. 8-)

Roddy is a great player; he was just hurt most of last year......I thought he was played too much!!
