I don't agree with this.
Every year there are all kinds of prospects, elite, good, or poor, who end up going to bad situations. But every year there are just as many who go to good situations. Sure, Spiller and Best didn't fall into optimum situations, and Gerhart, Dixon and Dwyer's considerable talents also look to go wasted. There's TEBC in both New England and Baltimore. But as mentioned, Ryan Mathews fell into the Garden of Eden. Both Ben Tate and Montario Hardesty have prime opportunities. Dez Bryant went to just about the best possible landing spot, and I like where Golden Tate, Arrelious Benn, Mardy Gilyard, & Brandon Lafell went too.
Last year, guys who I thought were pretty talented like Javon Ringer, Andre Brown, and Glen Coffee fell into some bad situations. But then you had guys like who Moreno, Crabtree, McCoy, and Shonn Greene who landed in prime opportunities.
Every year it's going to be basically the same, and unless you have a year where a considerable number of talented underclassmen come out, I don't think that one year is all that different from another.
