This year's draft full of busts and cuts?

Giants OL David Diehl is interviewed on ESPN Football Today  podcast by Matt Williamson and makes some telling points about the what the lockout will do to team rosters and rookies in particular. Currently 2nd podcast on the list (4/25)

His basic premise is the lack of pro-style offenses in college plus the lockout will lead to a lot of retention of journeymen pros at the expense of rookies. He is in favour of it as he believes they've done their dues and are often cut for the sake of bringing youth in. Interesting insights imo.

It also changes the drafting dynamic. Rookies will struggle to break into the lineups early in the season or at all. Positions with a lot of learning QB, OL etc. will go with the tried and true or be bigtime bust potentials. I feel sorry for the rookies who will have more on their plate this year. Though Gene's supposed drafting of high character seniors could pay off.

Later on maybe we can trade for all this year's stars next year as they get cut or bust?
