Let me state it like this, Marcus Spears is not what I expected out of a first round pick. He hasn't reached the expectations that I had when we drafted him. I pictured him performing like Luis Castillo has done for the chargers which includes playing well against the run and also being a great pressure player for the 3-4 DE position. I'll give marcus an above average grade on run stuffing, but pass rush is nonexistent. I call him a bust because my definition of a bust would include a first round DE who cannot put pressure on the passer. Your definition may be different from mine. If we got spears in the 3rd or 4th, my expectations would have been met.
I dont rip on spears because I am looking for recognition, I do it out of fresturation.
