Tyrone Wheatley, RB, University of Michigan.
What were your thoughts on this pick? I remember being excited. Mostly because had he come out in '94 he probably would have been a top 5 pick. His senior year was not as strong.
The internet was in its infancy and word on the bulletin boards at the time was Reeves wanted Rashaan Salaam and lost a power struggle with Young. Wheatley came into camp late after a contract holdout. I remember meeting Reeves at training camp at Farleigh Dickinson that year and asking when Wheatley would be in camp and he gave me a nasty look.
Wheatley never really got a shot with Reeves. DO you think he would have been different with a different head coach? He had a couple good seasons with Gruden in Oakland and lasted 10 seasons in the league.
Did you like the pick? Why was he a bust? Talent? Coaching?
