Here's all you need to know:
Vlad was drafted in the 2nd as a huge project with a high upside. The guy played at UMass and only had a few years of organized football under his belt. Look back at any draft preview at that time - he was projected as a 2/3 round pick who would need time to develop.
Vlad looked the role of a project in year 1. But the Jets miscalculated and thought he could compete for a starting position.
Vlad had the misfortune of the lock out in his 2nd year, which basically eliminated all off season programs and condensed camp.
Vlad has looked lost pass blocking, and has been best used as a 2nd TE in obvious run situations.
Vlad needs to developing this year, or all the cries of 'BUST!' might finally be backed with some validity.
