Odell Thurman: Oozed talent. Legitimate DROY candidate in '05. Was a big reason the Bengals went to the playoffs that year. Yeah, he didn't pan out in the long haul, but again, not sure I'd qualify that as a project.
Frostee Rucker: Definite project. Although he did show some signs of life last year as far as penetration and ability to sniff out a screen. For a 3rd rounder, I want more, but not a glaringly awful pick, IMO.
Chris Perry: I got nothin'. Bad, bad pick.
Henry, Thurman, and Rucker weren't really projects, but they were certainly rejects. I mentioned rejects in an early post, but didn't classify them that way in this post. Bad character guys. Bad picks.
