Hood was used because he sat so long on the bench (another issue unto itself) that it spills over into the now catagory. Next time, take everything into account instead of just isolating what you want.
And you say we didn't pass up anything good? Really? Patrick Chung, Phil Loadholt, Paul Kruger, Sean Smith.....do you think we could have used those guys?
Hood played right away. Smith was put on IR two years in a row. He started 9 games year two and 14 games year three and played in every game his rookie year.
