What was your worst memory of draft weekend? When were you the most disappointed in your team with their picks?

Mine was the 2004 draft. I really wanted Oakland to take Roethlisberger or Fitzgerald, but instead we took Gallery. I admit, I was just wanted the QB or WR because they were the flashier picks.

The year was 2004. Bengal fans weren't used to having to wait so long to draft. Finally, after hours and hours, the Bengals are on the clock. Oh my god! Steven Jackson had fallen right into their lap! Screw you Corey Dillon! We're about to get our next superstar!

But then the Bengals trade the pick to St. Louis, who then takes Steven Jackson. Ugh. This process repeats itself a few minutes later. Kevin Jones - the elusive back from Virginia Tech has fallen to us! Take him!

"With the 26th pick in the 2004 NFL Draft, the Cinicinnati Bengals select: Chris Perry, RB, Michigan."

Worst. Draft Moment. Ever.

Also last year sucked when everyone and their mother knew that New Orleans was going to trade up for Sedrick Ellis so that the Bengals wouldn't take him and they did just that.

well i was really pissed when the jets traded up for Darrell Revis, and although before i saw that Aaron Ross was old i thought Ross was still a great pick.

Well Revis is a shutdown corner who makes ridiculous 1 hand interceptions (was it in the pro bowl?) and the giants took Ross who is pretty decent, but not at all at Revis's level

For the Cowboys, It is 2006 (Followed closely by 2004)
heres a review of our picks that year

Bobby Carpenter-Mr.Barbie Carpenter, can't produce, talks sh-t, and is held in contempt by his teammates. He is the epitome of a bust, and I can't believe that I wanted this guy to be picked. I remember looking at Scott's mock which had us taking Santonio Holmes and raging over that. Boy, I wish, we could have Santonio

Anthony fasano-Good Player, but didn't produce much for us. Goes to Miami, and starts to blossom and make plays everywhere. I was angry with the pick, and I was angry that we didn't take the time to develop him once we had him, but Martellus Bennett is a stud.

Jason Hatcher-Has been a backup the last couple years, but is not a bad player. He'll finally get his chance to prove himself this year, with Chris Canty gone, and that could show whether this pick was another waste in a forgettable draft, or the one shining light in a terrible draft.

Skyler Green-We cut him promptly after the season ended. I knew he couldn't catch at all, but damn he couldn't even return kicks with his bum ass.

Pat Watkins-Good ST player, hasn't proven himself much at Safety, and he's always hurt. I think he can be a good Free Safety however.

Montavious Stanley- Bum ass man, who has been on 5 teams in 3 years.

Pat Mcquistan-One of the ugliest human beings I've ever seen in my life, and a decent backup utility Lineman

E.J. Whitley-Couldn't hold down a roster spot as a CENTER IN THE CFL.

I was royally pissed in the 2004 draft when we took Deangelo Hall over Dunta Robinson. 2000, 2001, 2002, and 2003, I was calling for Reeves head. I was even more pissed in 2005 when we took Roddy White (though I calmed on him). I was good in 2006. 2007, I hated the Jamaal Anderson pick, but loved the Blalock and Houston picks.

For New England, I've been kinda bummed out by Ben Watson and Logan Mankins. I've liked all the other recent first round picks. A lot of the time I hate their second day too, like in 2007 when they threw away like eight picks on practice squad players. The best ones were the Dillon trade, Moss trade, Vince Wilfork, and trade up for Chad Jackson (whoops!)

derza222
03-19-2009, 09:13 PM
'05 for the Jets. We traded a first round pick for a second and Doug ******* Jolley. Then we took a ******* kicker in the second round.

To make matters worse, the kicker (Nugent) didn't really pan out, and is no longer on the roster along with Jolley and Justin Miller, our other second round pick. And none of them are really any good, certainly not worth their selections. A massive 0/3.

2004: Passing on Steven Jackson. UGH!

2008: I wanted Chris Johnson soo bad, while Felix has shown he was a good pick, I'm still not completely sold.

Well looking back at it it wasn't so bad. Saints got Ellis (but gave up a 3rd rounder) and the Bengals got Rivers and Pat Sims (the 3rd rounder that they would have had to give up to move up for Ellis).

But what was so bad about it was that everyone knew the Saints were going to move up to get our guy. Heck, even Scott had the trade in his final mock draft - and he never projects trades. It was just really hard to sit back and watch that unfold.

I can't say I've been disapointed with any early picks over the past few years for the Ravens at the time, but last year i was like WTF with Marcus Smith and David Hale in the 4th... I guess I'm spoiled.

Note - was not a NFL fan the year we took Boller (thank goodness).

Chris Williams over Brandon Albert hurt last year. I loved Albert as a prospect and hated Williams.

Albert looks like a stud and Williams was out for pretty much the entire year and may end up being damaged goods.

Yeah, there are definitely worse picks, but that one still hurts, because it was so recent.

Trading up to take John McCargo. Ugh. Just... no. Definitely the worst for me.

I had a mixed reaction when we traded up for Losman. I didn't hate it, we needed to draft a QB, but I wanted Schaub :(

The memory of the first draft I ever watched is etched in my head. Unfortunately, that memory is of us taking Erik Flowers.

Probably not my worst draft memory but passing on Steve Jackson for Michael Clayton hurt. Clayton changed my mind with his rookie year but then changed my mind again by sucking after that. Seems like everyone here is pissed for passing on SJax.

Also in 07, I really wanted Joe Thomas or CJ. With both gone, I wanted Brady Quinn or Okoye, and we got Adams (decent so far).

Last year's Browns draft. They had only a 4th, 5th, 6th and 7th. They got Beau Bell with the first 4th (got hurt). Traded up to get Martin Rucker (I was hoping they were trading up for Scandrick. Rucker who was hurt most of the year.) Then they drafted NT Ahtyba Rubin which was nice. Then draft Paul Hubbard who didn't do well in preseason and was on the practice squad until the whole WR core got hurt. The only good pick was our 7th rounder Alex Hall who at the time was a "Who???" pick.

2003; Bolts release Rodney Harrison. Troy Polamalu falls into our laps midway through the first...and we trade down and proceed to take Sammy Davis, CB, (one pick ahead of Nnamdi Asomugha, in retrospect) Terrence Kiel, S, and Drayton Florence, CB, with our first 3 picks. Way to fix the secondary, AJ. I fumed for days.

Then again we got Stephen Cooper, Kris Dielman, and Antonio Gates as UDFA that year so I guess everything comes around. And Scifres with a 5th.

Two words: Mike Williams

Me and my buddy were at work and his dad was texting us the picks that year. Suddenly he gets a text that that reads "det- mike williams, usc." So buddy texted him back saying "ha ha. who did we really take?" His dad's response was "not kidding. mike williams is a lion." That was devestating. We spent the rest of the day trying to figure out why they passed on Shawne Merriman and Derrick Johnson.

Both of our 05 and 06 first rounders. I followed the draft pretty well in 05 and I was completely shocked we took Pacman over Rolle. From the first interview I heard Pacman give I hated him.
In 06 I knew it would be given we'd take a qb(unless Reggie Bush fell to us). I really did not like VY as a pro prospect and wanted Jay Cutler or Matt Leinart. Needless to say I was very disappointed.

thebow305
03-20-2009, 11:41 AM
Probably 2006 for me.

We took Jason Allen. I think I was just in denial over the whole thing, because the writing was on the wall for that pick, based on Saban's SEC bias.

I really wanted Chad Jackson and was hoping that bias would go towards UF that year, but it didn't, and I guess it's a wash there anyway. I also really wanted Bobby Carpenter, Marcus McNeill, Cromartie, or Manny Lawson. I would have taken any of those players over Allen, but we didn't. :(

Though there have been quite a few I didnt like, the one that still haunts me to this day was...

Jim Drunkenmiller Qb - VTech

I was 12 that year and was already a huge NFL/49ers/Draft fan

I was totally sold on Jake Plummer as a guy who could be the next great 49ers QB - he was perfect (or very good) for our system and I just loved how he competed at the colligiate level. When I heard the pick of "drunkenmiller" I can literally remember being brought to tears because I was so angry.

The other two I can remember would be with Alex Smith - I honestly thought Rodgers was a better pick, but I deferred to our management and felt vindicated at first because of how far Rodgers fell...too bad I was right all along. The other was Balmer last year, no matter where I read a scouting report, they all said the same thing "talented, but with major bust factor" - I was just praying we wouldnt take Balmer of Gosder.

As a Miami Dolphins fan, there have been plenty of disappointments throughout the years on draft day. However, the 2007 Ted Ginn pick over Brady Quinn was absolutely devastating at the time.

The draft had fallen on my college's "Block Party" weekend, which is basically the biggest party day of the year. I was out and about all day, but as the draft started I was constantly keeping tabs as to when Miami picked. The biggest potential hurdle to Quinn falling to Miami was Minnesota; when they took Adrian Peterson, it was all but a lock that he was going to the Dolphins.

I managed to duck into friend's house as the entire college population of the town was raging in the streets, and randomly ended up sitting next to three other Dolphins fans (we're in PA, it's kind of rare.) We were stoked, we all wanted Quinn, and it was actually happening. Falcons take Jamaal Anderson, it's Miami's turn. They take a ridiculous amount of time before they submit their pick, which should have been the first sign of trouble.

The entire room quieted down as Tagliabue went to the podium... and then we were all simultaneously destroyed as he announced Ted Ginn as the pick.

I honestly was flabbergasted. It almost ruined my day, though by the time they selected John Beck, I was drunk and had already given up hope on the new regime, so I was ready for a terrible pick.

Trading up for Vernon Carey in 2004 was pretty bad too. I wanted Shawn Andrews or D.J. Williams so badly, and they both got taken a couple of picks previously. Wasted a 4th just to move up one spot for Carey.

03-20-2009, 01:44 PM
When Matt Millen is your GM, every pick is painful when you know that about 1% will turnout any good and that is drafting top 10 practically every year. I don't think anybody will ever match his bust #'s over 7 years even if they were trying to do it. Of course, we still have the same owner who hired all the GM's who have produced 1 playoff appearance since he owned the team and his recent hire of Matt Millen's assistant begs the question, will he be any better????

As a Rutgers fan in 2007, I was eager to find out where Brian Leonard might be going. At the time, the buzz among fans was that the Giants was interested in picking up the hometown hero. The buzz online by and large was in agreement, except for a small article that Leonard had worked out for the Rams in St. Louis and his agent declared in a public interview, "The Rams are very interested in Brian." We all wrote this off as a smokescreen.

I was on a Rutgers fansite, following the draft. The Giants' pick in the second round rolled around and we were all going, "Hey, I really think this might happen!" People were getting all excited - this was after the Barber retirement and Jacobs and Ward were still relative unknowns. People figured tailback was a huge need for the Giants. And then,

"The Giants select Steve Smith, receiver, USC."

The reaction was all "WTF!?!?!??! Steve Smith!?!?" Fans were blowing up.

And then, as they all settled down, I saw the Rams were on the clock and posted, "Heh, maybe the agent was right and the Rams will take him."

Moments after I clicked submit: "The Rams select Brian Leonard, running back, Rutgers."


For the record, I'm not a Giants fan and I haven't followed the draft for very long, but my friends were devout, so for me, it was disappointing that I wouldn't be able to watch Leonard on TV, but for them, it was fairly tragic.

Until Jacobs, Ward, and the other guy emerged. Then they totally forgot about Leonard.

Kosier doesnt start for us and never did. In fact, he went to Dallas right after his contract and then he was a starter. The rest of the people from that draft didnt even stay with the team past their rookie contract... if they even made it that far. Outside Eric, this was a BUST of a draft.

Trading up for Vernon Carey in 2004 was pretty bad too. I wanted Shawn Andrews or D.J. Williams so badly, and they both got taken a couple of picks previously. Wasted a 4th just to move up one spot for Carey.

How can you say we wasted a 4th get Carey? He has started pretty much every game for us since we picked him and has been pretty solid in doing so.

It's funny how much different two people's opinions can be. I had been touting Ginn all along and when we actually picked him, I jumped around like a giddy little school girl. it was quite embarrassing actually, if you can imagine. I don't think my best friend has looked at me the same way since. :eek:

I really didn't want Quinn and really did not understand the fan hype for him down here. People were devasted, and for what? He's just not that good. I thought the same then and I haven't really been proven wrong since. In retrospect, Ginn wasn't that great a pick either and we should have gone with Partick Willis, but I was sure happy at the time.

1st rounder in 2000
3rd rounder in 2000


What's so sad is, there were times where it almost seemed worth it, and he could have consistently been that guy he was with the Dolphins.

2003 was pretty bad as well. If it wasn't for a little known 6th rounder named Yeremiah Bell, that draft would have been a complete FAILURE.

Sigh, if SD ever gets a Super Bowl win, I'll recite the entire roster daily as some kind of mantra for the rest of my life.

Again, I'm not a Giants fan and I agree, 619, that Other Guy was a better pick than Leonard - I'm just conveying the feelings my Rutgers/Giants friends felt at that moment.
