    2006 - VY. The guy was fantastic in college and it was a nice start here. I was more excited about Titans in late '06 than ever before as I took the early success for granted. It is a shame that it ended up the way that it did.

    2007 - Aaron Ross. Didn't really know Michael Griffin. Then I wanted Steve Smith in the 2nd round and the Giants took him the next pick, then I wanted Jay Alford in the 3rd round and the Giants took him next pick again. So frustrating, though Griff certainly has had his moments.

    2008 - Desean Jackson. I had never considered CJ, but I had watched him gash Boise State and I was pumped about the pick.

    2009 - I was hoping that Vontae Davis, Harvin or Maclin would slip. I liked Nicks, too. By the time the Titans were on the clock, I was on board with Britt.

    2010 - Derrick Morgan.

    2011 - Didn't want Locker, wasn't really in love with any of the realistic options when the team was on the clock. I guess I wanted Fairley at that point.

    2008 - RB Darren McFadden or WR Desean Jackson (but now glad neither ended up with us)
    2009 - WR Hakeem Nicks
    2010 - DE Derrick Morgan
    2011 - QB Lake Locker

    2006: I was hoping that Reggie Bush would have fallen to us but was just as excited with the VY pick. Both had superstar written all over them.

    2007: I wanted Dwayne Bowe, he would have been a great weapon for VY.

    2008: I wanted Antoine Cason but sure am glad we "reached" for CJ.

    2009: I wanted Rey Maualuga or James Laurinaitis because I felt we needed a replacement for Keith. But Kenny has been worth the pick so far, hopefully he can stay healthy.

    2010: I was torn between Morgan and Sean Weatherspoon but was happy when Morgan got the call.

    2011: JJ Watt was the guy I wanted at the time. I thought Jake was a huge reach at #8. Looking back though, he could end up being one of the better QBs in the league sooner than later.

    JJ Watt was my other choice. He was the closest thing to a sure thing.

    I was not enthused with the Britt pick. Didn't know him. I can say, while he is in, he is good.. possibly even worth the pick, but the fact he is always injured makes me say: unless he tears it up this year, he has not been worth the pick. You expect more than a brush with greatness out of your 1st round receiver. Plus his off-the-field antics make me not really like the guy, personally. Though I will absolutely root for him as a receiver.

    And with Morgan, he never was an ultra-exciting player. Not the quick pass rusher, more of a run-stopping end. Not too much to get excited about, and I have remained unexcited.

    Our two most consistent 1st round picks still on the roster (CJ and Griffin) are woefully inconsistent. I just plain do not like Griffin anymore after that showing at home against the Texans last year. Griffin plays like a wimp, and I wouldn't spend one second lamenting if we let him walk.

    A part of me died that day.
