6. Al Afalava, CB, Oregon State
Afalava started 13 games as a rookie but was cut the following season. He spent two more seasons in the NFL, on the Colts and Titans respectively before his career ended with 15 starts.
7. Lance Louis, G, San Diego State
Louis started 28 games for Bears over three seasons. He was not a strong asset, but given his draft status he was one of the few wins of this draft class
7. Derek Kinder, WR, Pitt
A lot of Pitt skill players turn into solid NFL assets. Kinder was not one of them. He was cut from the Bears and did not find his way onto the practice squad either.
In a microscope of 2009, getting Jay Cutler and Johnny Knox for Robert Ayers and a throw away is not bad. It is 2010 that makes the Cutler more of a debate. However, while they invested wisely in getting a quarterback with their 2009 first round pick, they lost out on a great chance with their second round pick. Even if they were not to take Unger they could have found better options than Gilbert and Melton. The rest of the draft would have been F worthy. It is the small hit on Cutler with a first round pick that keeps it from being an absolute failure.
