I can't tell you how many rants I've heard/read regarding the broyles pick. Many people argued the pick was a waste and we neglected our immediate needs, particularly the secondary. Well the defense has been playing well. Someone already posted a thread regarding our pass defense-6th in the nfl. This is pretty impressive regarding the committee of players we have used thus far. Our depth seems to be pretty stellar, but could still use an upgrade to become elite.
No one could have predicted the Burleson injury. However, we have a player who is capable to come in and make an immediate impact. It's a small sample size, but Broyles looked good last week.
Bottom line, if we make a playoff run and I believe we will, Broyles will be an important component to this goal.
