If it weren't for the Bills taking EJ Manuel and the Browns taking Barkevious Mingo, how else would guys like Jarvis Jones have fallen to the Steelers.
While I agree that bad GM's make life easy for solid GM's who chuckle with joy every time a bad GM makes a poor pick, Jarvis Jones cannot play for most teams in the NFL. He is lucky that the Steelers will only ask him to rush the passer and won't ask him to drop into coverage, because all he can do is be a pass rusher. He could never play for a 4-3 team because they ask their LB's to drop into coverage and a lot of 3-4 teams also expect their LB's to drop into coverage.
Jarvis Jones fell in the draft because he is a one dimensional LBer.
