They all have talent. Obviously they havent displayed all of it yet. VD displayed some great playmaking skills in several games. Lawson was a beast in coverage but a major dissapointment in pass rush (2.5 sacks..come on, lawson is better than that)
Smith played efficient, and although his stats arent the greatest, very few of his INT's were of mental error. He also went through stages. He played good at times and awful at other times.
I see no reason to see why they are not building blocks. They have talent, and have displayed some of it, but have not been consistent. They could all bust horribly and i could be wrong or they could all be all-pros. But i count them as building blocks because they have only improved with each game.
I also never brought up "the player we will draft at 11". Im not counting that until i see the player we draft in TC.
