He was one of those prospects that I loved--under-rated coming out of highschool, earned his respect on the field in college by being extraordinary (like Russel Wilson). I hate for you all to re-live the dissapointment, and I guess I could google it, but I'll ask you guys for the fan perspective of what the f.... happened that he became so irrelivant? Did he get injured? Did he have a family tradgedy and just give up? He was so great in college, as I recall. So, what happened?
I think what happened was the pro game was just too complex for him. At college he could just "out-athlete" people, and you can do that at the pro-level, but it is way more important to be in the right place at the right time. If your a step late in the pros, or un-sure, that's all the opponent needs, and you're effectively outta the play. I think the mental part of the pro-game just never "clicked" for him. Hope that helps.
