Maybe you were. The conversations I've seen were a lot more about "we don't need to sink another pick on another freaking lineman" because Berry was the consensus choice here. This thread tells an interesting story (it's about Gaither, not Okung).

So a few things. One, you acknowledge that you liked Albert's future, not the way he was playing at the time. Two, the thread shows that CP was less than fully confident that Albert could be a franchise left tackle and viewed him as replaceable. The conversation started with "did Albert improve?" I don't know how anyone can look at Albert's progression and not admit that he is a much better left tackle than he was in 2009, or even his rookie season. He turned into a top notch run blocker overnight and his pass protection has evolved from constantly making mistakes to now being a pretty consistently solid pass protector.
