    I did not really want CJ or britt. Had never heard of them.

    I would have been happy with VY or Leinart.

    I thought griffin was an ok pick.

    2005 - Aaron Rodgers
    2006 - Vince Young
    2007 - Leon Hall
    2008 - Rashard Mendenhall
    2009 - Hakeem Nicks
    2010 - JPP
    2011 - Nick Fairley

    That's as far back as I can remember. As far as the JPP pick, it's hard for me to know if I really would've picked him over Morgan because I felt JPP was a much bigger risk, as he was a raw talent with tremendous upside, but could've failed.

    Overall, that's pretty good. And obviously, if we had drafted Rodgers in 2005, I wouldn't have wanted VY the next year.

    06- Vince
    07- ?
    08- DRC
    09- Mathews or Nicks
    10- JPP
    11- Locker was my number 1, followed by Ponder then Mallett. Gabbert was never an option for me.

    You guys are so full of crapolla. Almost everyone is citing JPP, funny I've been on the message boards awhile back in the TOMB days and I sure don't recall that many of us hyped on JPP. Guess hindsight is 20/20, lol.

    2006: Jay Cutler

    2007: Leon Hall

    2008: Branden Albert

    2009: Hakeem Nicks

    2010: Brandon Graham or Kyle Wilson (can't remember exactly)

    2011: Jake Locker

    2007-Michael Griffin
    2008-Rashard Mendenhall
    2009-Kenny Britt OR Hakeem Nicks (I was honestly cool wit either one)
    2010-Jason Pierre Paul (despite the critics saying he was raw..and under developed. I had no idea he would be this good though. And to be honest..since I had hadn't seen Morgan I was still OK with the pick because he was supposed to be "NFL ready" LOL)
    2011-Julio Jones

    Everyone pretty much has at least one bust in their hopeful picks, I don't think anyone is fraudin', JPP had some hype around here.

    Not like it really matter anyway. Guy was picked before we got to him anyway.

    2007: Don't Remember

    2008: Don't remember, HATED the Chris Johnson pick (lol, love it now) -- Pretty sure I wanted a WR though, which is weird since none were taken in the 1st round.

    2009: Nicks/Britt (I didn't care which one)
    2010: JPP/Morgan (again, I just wanted a DE)
    2011: Locker (I DIDN'T want Gabbert or Fairley)

    Actually it's funny, I remember posting on my FB as a joke about 2 weeks before the draft, "with the 8th pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the Tennessee Titans select Jake Locker"
