    Ok ok ok… just kidding! Real list:
    2005- Antrel Rolle

    2006- Vince Young- No doubt about it! …then I was pryaaaaaing we would somehow also get Vernon Davis! I did NOT want Bush!!!

    2007- Robert Meachem

    2008- Limas Sweed- Once we got CJ and saw that no WR were drafter in the first. I was soooo pumped thinking we could get him in the 2nd. Then the damn Steelers took them one pick before us! After the second round… 2008 went from best draft ever to the “who the F is that???” draft.

    2009- Darrius Heyward-Bey- He’s still my boy and I’m not sold on him being bust just yet. Then Rey Maualuga once he fell to us

    2010- JPP or Morgan- I wasn’t 100% on either!

    2011- Cam Newton or Dareus in the 1st then Ponder in the 2nd

    Might be a good thing that you're not our teams GM. Not that your choice of players is bad, but how did you expect to get most of them? Cam Newton wasn't slipping past 3 last year. And Heyward-Bey? That's just turrible.

    2005 - Didn't know. Thought "Pac-Man" was cool, but heard about all his off field issues which made me nervous even then.

    2006 - I wanted Leinart. I thought VY had a great shot at being like McNair though. Boy was I wrong...

    2007 - No clue.

    2008 - McFadden. I def wanted a RB but had no idea CJ was going to be what he was.

    2009 - Nicks damn Giants. I wasn't sold on Britt but I was hopeful

    2010 - JPP - F*Cking Giants again!!!

    2011 - Def wanted a QB, but I was hoping we could some how get Luck. I def didn't want Cam because I thought he'd be just like VY.

    I was really happy with Locker, but I did like Mallet's size.

    2011 - Von Miller or JJ Watt
    Wanted a playmaker on D, then Dalton or Ponder in the 2nd. However we got our playmakers (Casey and McCarthy) in the later rounds :)

    2010 - Jason Pierre-Paul
    Wanted his athleticism vs Morgans "NFL READY" game.

    2009 - Vontae Davis or Hakeem Nicks
    Illini fan, so I wanted Vontae, but knew we did need CB bad. So Hakeem Nicks was who I wanted, happy we got Britt though (if he'd stay healthy)

    2008 - Rashard Mendenhall
    Realized LenWhale wasn't a feature back, being an Illinois fan.. I wanted Mendenahll.

    2007 - Reggie Nelson
    Whew, blew that one.

    2006 - Vince Young
    No comment, was nice for a while... especially on Madden lol

    2005 - Antrel Rolle
    Thought he was related to Samari ahah

    :cry: No offense taken… but respectfully disagree!!!! I would be a hall of fame GM! :D

    … in all honesty though, with the exception of DHB (which I am admittedly extremely biased with), the rest of my picks weren’t too far off. Who else do you think, at that time, would have been a terrible pick? Obviously hindsight is 20/20. Btw… I’m not the only who thought DHB would be a breakout player… just saying.

    This is a list of players I wanted. Not a list of the players I would have drafted based on who would have been picked ahead of me. With the 8th pick last year, at that point I wanted Locker. No doubt about it. I bought into the hype with Ponder, and I was also biased because I’m a Nole, but honestly I was never fully sold on him while he was with us. I figured in the second, could be worth a shot.

    Yea but that other guy died so he doesn't have to admit he was wrong. DHB should have never been a 1st pick or a featured WR. IMO and most others, DHB is at best a 3rd WR kind of like Az-Zahir Hakim was with the Rams.

    Didn't DHB have to play with Russell? Eh jury is still out on him, personally I think he would be a real good WR if he was with the right team.

    I also hated the CJ pick. I remember yelling at the TV "WHO THE HECK IS CHRIS JOHNSON?!?"

    Honestly the only one I really knew was Hawkins.

    I did become very excited for Cary Williams. Can't believe he starts for the Ravens now!
