I live in Big 12 country so I got to see a lot of Crabtree. The Monday after the draft most of my co-workers that talk football were amazed that the Jags didn’t select Crabtree. I was excited that Monroe dropped to the Jags, but I wondered what could have been. That was until I watch path to the draft the other night on the NFL channel. It followed Michael Crabtree, Matthew Stafford, and Brain Cushings. Cushings was amazing to watch preparing for the combine and then not being satisfied so working even harder for his pro day. Stafford was shown being bounced around from interviews to appearances to getting prepared and then on to his pro day. Crabtree was shown test driving a Mercedes, then hearing about his injury, then after getting his boot off looking at multi-million dollar apartments (so he would have a place to go when he went back to Dallas), and then on draft day putting on his custom made suit with his name and number embroider inside.
I couldn’t have been happier after watching that, that the Jags didn’t select $$$Crabtree$$$, but I am now worried that the Texans picked up a guy like Cushings.
