    Definitely between woolfolk and Henry. I gave the edge to Woolfolk tho since he was a first rounder (what the heck were the Titans thinking that year??? LOL)

    I don't blame Williams and Chris Henry, because neither were good college players. As I said about Henry earlier, Paul Williams couldn't help that the Titans thought he was good. 72 catches over a 4 year career at Fresno State. I remember watching Griffin get picked, going out and getting something to eat, then feeling like I was going to throw up after they took Henry then Williams.

    I've been wrong about a lot of guys both ways, but I don't think anyone felt good about those picks.

    I voted Andre Woolfork with no questions asked.

    I didn't like the pick from the start. He was a former WR who switched to CB not too long before being drafted by us.

    I'm done talking about this bum and terrible draft pick.

    It was a huge mistake, lol. The mistake was Sherman Smith's and Reinfeldt's.

    Henry ran a 4.33 40 and benched 26 reps at the combine. Smith, who was the Titans RB coach at the time, fell in love with Henry and persuaded Reinfeldt to draft him. This was after the Titans just let Travis Henry walk in free agency, so they needed help at RB. The other RBs that year were LenDale and Chris Brown. A couple of people wrote that Henry didn't see the field but he actually had 2 TDs his rookie year. The next year he had one attempt for 3 yards.

    You're right, he didn't do much in college at all. He had less than 1,000 yards rushing - total - in four years.

    The funny thing is, after Smith became the Redskins OC, he brought Henry up there. Must have still had a man crush on him.

    But the difference was that we let Henry go. It seemed like Paul Williams was around forever!

    How is Chris Henry tied with Woolfolk, I don't get that? Henry was a 2nd round pick and, in case you didn't know, there is a 50% chance that a 2nd round pick will not become a starter in the NFL. Comparing him to a 1st round bust like Woolfolk is like comparing apples to oranges.

    Unfortunately I will say Woolfolk. Everyone knew Henry was a bad pick.
