I thought Paymah was the most raw guy of the three, and he proved not to be able to translate to the NFL. Damn Brandon Marshall though for taking Darrent too soon
I seem to remember Shannahan talking to a reporter about Paymah in his 2nd or 3rd year. He was asked why Paymah was slow to "get it", or something like that.

Shanny said something to the effect that Paymah has all the tools, but displayed "zero work ethic" in his rookie year. I remember him emphazising the term "zero". It surprised me because Shanny was unusually frank in the interview. No coach's double talk this time.

I am not sure that will be much of a problem with Webster.
