  • Best Prospects of the Decade

    We're nearing the end of the 00's, so I figured you guys could come up with lists for the best Prospects of the Decade. I know these guys will be drafted in 2010 but.. we'll ignore that. Best Prospects from the 2000 Draft thru the 2010 Draft. Offensive, Defensive, Overall, by Position.. Top 5, Top 10, Top 20.. however you guys wanna do it. Obviously, ignore how they did in the Pros.

    I didn't start following the draft closely until 2004 so I can't speak on the Drafts prior to that. Let's get some lists going!

  • #2
    QB - Carson Palmer/Phillip Rivers
    RB - Adrian Peterson/LT
    FB - Care
    TE - KW2/Davis
    WR - Andre Johnson/Larry Fitzgerald/Calvin Johnson

    LT - D'Brick/Joe Thomas
    LG - Hutchinson
    C - Mangold
    RG - Andrews (nice call)
    RT - Oher since thats where he is now.

    Thats offense...

          Leonard Davis was drafted #2 Overall. Was he looked at as a LT and the Cardinals just played him at Guard, or was he strictly a Guard? That's pretty crazy, if he was drafted as a Guard he must've been an absolutely insane prospect at the position.

            I actually just looked through that draft history before my first post. Davis played LT at Texas. The Cardinals thought Davis was going to be their LT but he lacked the feet. He played his first few years as a guard with the thought that he'd develop into a LT but it never really worked out.

                  He was drafted as a tackle and busted so they moved him to guard, like the Raiders would later do with Gallery.

                  Sean Taylor and Kellen Winslow Jr. might be the most insane prospects I've ever seen.

                        I know your looking back on the guys who had the best physical tools but there are some problems.

                        First of all, Cromartie missed his entire junior season with a torn ACL and still declared. Although everybody knew he had physical ability, there were a lot of questions surrounding him. He ended up going #19 which is where most people thought he would end up.

                        Adrian Peterson was obviuosly a hell of a player and prospect but there were some serious concerns on whether he could stay healthy. He only played about half a season in both his sophomore and junior seasons. By the time the draft rolled around there were even talks that Marshawn might be taken before AD because people were speculating AD would fall.

                        Ngata was always physically a beast but I don't think anyone predicted him going any higher than Buffalo at #8.

                        Though good call on Shawn Andrews. I forgot all about him.

                          Gotta give some love to Sean Taylor, best saftey prospect ever.

                          Lets not forget back to 2000, Lavar Arrington was a MONSTER.

                            Without getting too deep;

                            QB: Carson Palmer
                            RB: Adrian Peterson/Reggie Bush

                            G: Steve Hutchinson(I guess, but nobody really pays much attention to guards and they aren't super projetable measurable players anyway.)
                            C: Nick Mangold

                            DE: Julius Peppers, Mario Williams

                            ILB: Patrick Willis, AJ Hawk(although he could play either spot)
                            CB: Antonio Cromartie, DeAngelo Hall
                            S: Sean Taylor, Michael Huff

                              I've been watching and studying the draft for a while now, but hardcore since 2005 so I'll only do my team from then until now.

                              2005-2010

                              QB: JaMarcus Russell
                              RB: Reggie Bush
                              WR: Calvin Johnson
                              TE: Vernon Davis
                              OT: Joe Thomas
                              OG: Brandon Albert
                              OC: Nick Mangold

                              DE: Mario Williams
                              DT: Suh
                              OLB: AJ Hawk
                              ILB: Patrick Willis
                              CB: Antrel Rolle* (toughest one for me to do... If I remember I had Revis and Hall ranked about the same, and I'm still getting a read on Haden. Jenkins last year was up there too.. I remember I liked Rolle better than Pacman)
                              S: Eric Berry*(assuming he comes out, if not definitely Landry)
