Interesting in 2005 we wanted a cornerback not a LB. But 3 corners went ahead of us in PacMan, thank goodness, Antrell Rolle and Carlos Rogers. Millen was left scrambling and couldn't trade down so they decided to go with what they thought was value. Stupid West Coast Offense and their tall slow receivers.

I could see Rogers being a good fit. Our secondary would be in much better shape than it is today.

How do you know they couldn't trade down? Perhaps you recall that they made that pick about 60 seconds into their 15 on the clock. I felt at the time that they didn't try as hard as they could and it's even more obvious as time goes by.

Wow I didn't realize it was that early in the 15 min. Clayton made it seem like nobody wanted to trade. Stupid Millen.

yea i rly wanted Rolle. It seems like they have always wanted a CB or safety and always miss out. I think they wanted sean taylor but the redskins took him right in front of us They also wanted huff but he went before we could get him as well. Of course those two years it worked out for us getting roy and sims but it does look like they have tried going after CB and safety and just miss out a lot

It's looking pretty rough right now!!! :)Actually, I think it'll be solid by the start of the season.

We'll target a CB in the draft, signed Fisher, Wilson is improving and, if Bryant can stay healthy, will be a solid player for us. If we find a way to replace Kennedy, I'll be ecstatic.

I loved Derrick Johnson's "Bolo Punch" move.. Wanted him badly... I was so depressed when we picked Mike Williams...
