    I love how all our top picks are all 1st round with the lowest of them being George at 14th, yet all of our worst picks are either 2nd round picks or late first round (except Pacman, who I personally believe to be our worst pick ever).

    While 2nd round picks should work out, its not the same as blowing a 1st round or a high 1st round. You have the ENTIRE lot of college players and you blow the 6th overall on Pacman??? Only 5 other players were taken ahead of him, so there were easily 20 guys that would have been better. Have you seen the guys we could have gotten in place of him?? DeMarcus Ware, Aaron Rodgers, even other CBs that are better in Antrel Rolle and Carlos Rogers were taken after Pacman in the first round. A 2nd round pick cost the team SOOOOO much less money, so when they don't workout, you aren't losing as much.

    Also, have you seen the CBs that went after Woolfolk in '03?? We could have had Nnamdi Asomugha OR Charles Tillman. Both Pro Bowl CBs that went after Woolfolk

    Its easy to say our hall of fame 1st round picks were our best picks ever. Why not make a list of the best that WEREN'T taken in the 1st round or 2nd round?

    That list for me would be. Frank Wycheck (6th round), Derrick Mason (4th Round), Dave Stewart (4th Round), Benji Olsen (5th Round), and Cortland Finnegan (7th Round)

    We didn't draft Wycheck, he came from the Redskins.

    I'm surprised Finny with a 7th rounder wasn't on there.

    It's really hard for me to say that Pacman was a bust. The guy was a playmaker of epic proportions...

    Too bad he's an idiot. That's really the only thing.

    Still a bust..when you look at a player you have to take into account them as a person and not just their football skills. VY should be on there too with Pacman and I was the biggest VY fan for years.

    Pacman wasn't a bad pick....He could have been a franchise changer if he wasn't stupid.

    No he couldn't. He was a good, not great, cover corner with exceptional return skills. Hardly a franchise changer.

    He was in his 1st and 2nd year and he was already amongst the top CB's in the league..And on top of that he was already the most dangerous return man out there.
