What's with you?
Aboushi isn't a slap dick. This is a guy who is a first team All-Conference player who has started three years at left tackle. He absolutely dominated guys in his league and was arguably the best offensive tackle at the Senior Bowl. He's a damn fine offensive tackle prospect that is every bit as good as Joeckel or Fisher, who are being completely overrated at this point.
Neither of these guys are elite level prospects. Neither have the intangibles of an Okung or Thomas and spending a first overall pick on that type of guy would be tantamount to spending Ferrari money on a Volkswagen.
You've had your pretty pink panties in a wad for months if anyone suggests that Geno should be the pick and rationalizes it with facts or sensible, objective observations.
Get a grip.
