My point at the time we drafted him was that I was thrilled that Shanahan was finally answering my prayers and ditching the failed midgetbacker plan. Remember when all members of the media and most of this board were calling the linebackers the strength of the defense? What a joke. Seems like I was proven right about Mobley and Gold and the fact that we drafted another 240+ pound linebacker this year only confirms what I was saying.
