    Good point but Julio has made ATL a lot better team and I think they get at least one play-off win this season. They will lose to the Packers in the NFC championship game.

    He's a pro-bowler in year two. No regret for finding a pro-bowl caliber player. If they fail in the playoffs, it will be a GM failure on identifying complimentary players within the constraints he created with the Julio draft-day trade. Most draft picks don't end up being one of the best at his position by his second season.

    Perhaps my vision is skewed, but as I recall, WR is one of the positions where rookies rarely make a huge impact compared to other positions.

    Well aj green and Julio are doing well. I'm not sure about historically. I would think it would be one of the quicker just like in college.

    Fair point. Though it's impossible to know what they would have gotten with the picks they gave up for him. They already had a good offense.

    I definitely think it was a good move but I know how media types are.
