I wasn't initially happy with it and was hoping for Chad Jackson there (apparently EA wanted Sinorice all along anyway). Kiwi may work out though in whatever way they use him, so I won't judge the pick yet.

Yea it is a bit surprising, but either they are not pleased with Tuck, or they plan on trying Kiwi at OLB, which I think he could play.

Even if you don't like this pick, they made up for it by grabbing sinorice moss in the second round.

I was as surprised as anyone when the pick was made but in retrospect the pick borders on genius. When the team was playing without Strahan, Osi and Tuck things were bad. I can't even imagine how bad things would have been without Kiwi.

It's a shame that the media focus on Kiwi centers around two plays; the main one being the non-tackle that allowed Vince Young to score the TD. Putting aside the two rookie mistakes I thing we have a special one here. When Strahan finally steps down I think we'll be in great shape with Osi and Kiwi. After a watching his entire rookie season it is clear to me that Accorsi was right and Kiwi should have gone much higher than the last pick of the 1st round.
