I would love nothing more than for Kugbila to become a monster for us, he's a nice guy by all accounts, that pick still bothers me though. Wharton has generally been a solid player throughout his career, I can't really hold that one broken play too much against him, it happens. He's probably not coming back anyway.
Kugbilla's main strength was in the run game, and it should translate in the NFL. He has the the right build at 6'-4" 320lbs with athleticism. Gettleman said he has "football instincts" which goes a long way for rookies making transition into the NFL.
