    2013: I had a football crush on Jonathan Cooper in the first. Desperately wanted Cyprien or Robert Woods in the second, and honey badger in the third. I honestly believe that had Arizona not taken him the pick before us we would have taken him. Blidi was a consolation prize.

    2013: I wanted Decastro, was initially pissed when it looked like we took a short, fat, slow, slot guy. Alshon Jeffery would have been my 2nd. Didn't care about the 3rd and after.

    Out of all the "picked before" guys Poe was the only one that was picked waaaay before our selection. We missed out on Nicks by one pick and Graham by three. They were mostly in our range, just a pick or two early. That's what sucks the most.

    2005: Aaron Rodgers
    2006: Vince Young
    2007: Leon Hall/Robert Meachem
    2008: Jonathan Stewart/Rashard Mendenhall
    2009: Hakeem Nicks
    2010: Jason Pierre-Paul/Derrick Morgan
    2011: Robert Quinn/Nick Fairley/JJ Watt
    2012: Dontari Poe/David DeCastro/Dont'a Hightower
    2013: Star Lotulelei/Shariff Floyd

    I was too young and didn't pay attention to the draft before 2005. There are plenty of guys I wanted that I did not mention because they were not realistic options at our draft position (like Patrick Peterson, AJ Green, etc.).

    And yes, I wanted Rodgers. McNair was washed up and Rodgers was the best QB available. Then we cut to Pacman Jones on the couch and I drop my head to the ground in disbelief at what I had just witnessed.

    Pretty embarrassing that each of the top 9 picks in the 2011 draft are Pro Bowlers other than Locker. Should've listened to me and taken Quinn. That was an awful QB class.

    Another guy I was really hoping for was Steelers RB LeVeon Bell last year. But they reached and swiped him for that to be a possibility.

    I really liked Xavier Rhodes last year too. Le'Veon I liked, wanted him in the 3rd.
