Bottom line- if you are prepared to trade up for a player A) make sure he's the real deal and B) Invest enough time to properly develop said player.
McD failed on both.
The 2009 roster was horrible.
There's only three starters left in the NFL from that 2009 roster, Matt Prater, Ryan Clady, and Brandon Marshall. Eddie Royal may count as a starter, Knowshon also, Dumervil, and after them that's it.
