    Why is he a bust? I'm a fan of giving players three seasons before we write them off. Not everyone comes in and is Adrian Peterson, especially when their coach thinks he's playing Madden and every trick play works.

    2007: None
    2006: Brodrick Bunkley, DT, Florida State (After essentially a redshirt his rookie year, showed some glimpses of talent and saw a decent amount of double teams this year. 31 tackles, 3 sacks,
    2005: Mike Patterson, DT, USC (Decent rookie season that was highlighted by a 98 yard fumble return for a TD. Led all NFL DTs this year with 67 tackles and added 4 sacks)
    2004: Shawn Andrews, OL, Arkansas (He will eat you. Best RG in the game and top 3 OG)
    2003: Jerome McDougle, DE, Miami (Yeeeeeeeeeeeeesh. Likely to be cut this year, might get a stay of execution if Howard and Kearse are cut, but he's a major bust.
    2002: Lito Sheppard, CB, Florida (Top-notch corner, absolutely KILLS the Cowboys)
    2001: Fredex Freddie Mitchell, WR, UCLA (He is the reason why Eagles don't draft first round wideouts)
    2000: Corey Simon, DT, Florida State (Was pretty good for a while including an '03 Pro Bowl, now retired)
    1999: Donovan McNabb, QB, Syracuse (Owns a crapload of Eagles records, statistically the best Eagles QB ever. Still searching for that elusive ring)
    1998: William Thomas, OT, Florida State (BEAST Left Tackle)

      Dallas 1st history is not bad when they actually have a 1st rounder.

      Emmitt Smith
      Russell Maryland
      Alvin Harper
      Greg Ellis
      Ebenezer Ekuban
      Roy Williams
      Terrence Newman
      DeMarcus Ware
      Marcus Spears
      Bobby Carpenter
      Anthony Spencer.

      The ones I was unsure of are David LaFluer, Shante Carver, Kevin Smith, and Robert Jones.

      I have to admit Dallas has done a great job when they have had a 1st Rounder.
      Kevin Smith was solid

        One year is too little time to give a grade on Olsen.
        True, but I'm impressed with what I've seen so far.

        NFC North right ends are shaking in their cleats.

        Or @ least they had better be.

          like i said earlier... Colts and Patriots have been great.

          Colts:
          94: Marshal Faulk RB SDSU
          95: Ellis Johnson DE Florida
          96: Marvin Harrison WR Syracuse
          97: Tarik Glenn G Cal

          04: (2nd round) Bob Sanders S Iowa
          05: Marlin Jackson DB Michigan
          06: Joseph Addai RB LSU
          07: Anthony Gonzalez WR OSU

          really can't be better than that.

          Patriots:
          94: Willie McGinest OLB USC
          95: Ty Law CB Michigan
          96: Terry Glenn WR OSU
          97: Chris Canty DB Kansas State
          98: Robert Edwards RB Georgia
          98: Tebucky Jones DB Syracuse
          99: Damien Woody C Boston College
          00: (2nd round) Adrian Klemm T Hawaii
          01: Richard Seymour DT Georgia
          02: Daniel Graham TE Colorado
          03: Ty Warren DE Texas A&M
          04: Vince Wilfork NT Miami
          05: Logan Mankins G Fresno State
          06: Laurence Maroney RB Minnesota
          07: Brandon Meriweather DB Miami

          Better than most, a lot of very productive guys on this list.

            I'll never forget when the Titans picked Kevin Dyson ahead of Randy Moss.

              We've had some nice first round picks with Adrian Peterson, Kevin Williams, and Bryant McKinnie, but we've had our **** picks too ( Williamson, Erasmus James ).

              Our drafting in the 90s was hit-or-miss. We had Korey Stringer, Randall McDaniel, Moss, and Culpepper, and on the the other end of the spectrum we have greats like Derrick Alexander, Dimitrius Underwood, and Duane Clemons.

                I agree that he had a very solid rookie year, but I want to see more before I would give him an overall grade.

                  And coincidentally they are two of the best if not the two best teams in the league....The Colts' track record is just outstanding

                    well, turtlepower broke down the Giants, which until very recent history, blows. Kiwi is too early to tell, Ross has looked very good so far, and there's Eli(yea yea technically traded whatevs) and Shockey. Wily Jo blows. if you look at 2nd rounders, that's where the Giants have had most of their success.

                    92: Philippi Sparks- god how I loved this guy and his name. Very nice DB for us for quite a while

                    93- Michael Strahan- guy's having a pretty nice career, dont ya think?

                    94A- Thomas Randolph- ok, I'll show my youth, who?
                    94B- Jason Sehorn- Great talent for us, explosive DB who made plays, and unfortunately returned punts, in a preseason game, against the Jets :(

                    95- Scott Gragg- big nasty RT who played well for us for a while. Played for us in our last super bowl run, part of a big nasty OL.

                    96- Amani Toomer- One of my all time favorite Giants. A baller, leader and excellent team mate. His hands and speed are diminishing, but one of Eli's favorite targets and a HUGE steal IMO with the way his career's turned out(all time leading Giants reciever with catches and TD's)

                    97- Tiki Barber- a 3rd down return man who fumbled too much until Coughlin came to town. Was arguably the best back over that 3-4 year period where he held on to the ball and shredded defenses, but also opened his mouth too much. Excellent talent, a cancer in the locker room

                    98- Joe Jurevicius- A big possesion guy who was very good for us. We let him walk and now he's very productive in Clevelan along side Braylon.

                    99- Joe Montgomery- and our 1st rounder was Petigout, can we just erase this draft from memory?

                    2000- Cornelius Griffin- started along side a very good DL of strahan, hamilton and bratzke/holmes that no doubt helped his stats. Not a bad pick, but now starts for Washington.

                    01- no pick, pretty awful draft overall

                    02- Tim Carter- this name wants to make me hurl, but at least he did 2 things: Recover a fumble for a TD in the epic philly comeback last year and be traded to the Browns for Rueben Droughns!

                    03- Osi Umenyiora- my favorite in the NFL, he's my boy. I love Osi, and he's better and more productive than Peppers. top 5 DE IMO(at least top 10 for non-homers)

                    04- Chris Snee- a nasty mofo who plows guys over at the RG spot. an excellent guard, one of the best in the league who excells in the run game but is also a top pass blocking guard. EXCELLENT pick

                    05- Corey Webster- ok a month ago I'd tell you it he was a worthless piece of **** who shouldn't even make our roster. Now, he's a guy proving himself and perhaps can do good things. I'm not 100% sold on the kid, but he's bought more time with his recent play.

                    06- Sinorice Moss- labeled by many a bust already, but I'm giving him more time. He's got wheels, and perhaps we'll learn how to use him with shorter routes. I give him more time, time will tell.

                    07- Steve Smith- he's had some big drops, but also made some VERY nice catches. He'll be a stud to come, just wait for it.
                    We ALL bleed scarlet

                        You know scotty's homerism knows no bounds....

                        Peppers averages 9.33 sacks per year, including this year where he had a terrible year.
                        Umenyiora averages 8.3 sacks per year, and that number is grossly inflated by his career game against a backup RT with no previous game experience.
                        Peppers has 36 career passes defensed, Umenyiora has 8.
                        Peppers averages 40.6 tackles per year, Umeniora averages 33.4
                        Peppers has forced 20 fumbles, Umenyiora 14.
                        Peppers has 4 career INT, Umenyiora 0.
                        Peppers has 1 career TD, Umenyiora 0

                          1999 - Antoine Winfield - CB
                          1998 - N/A
                          1997 - Antwoin Smith - RB

                          John Fina for Wall of Fame!

                          Actually quite a few good players on that list, but of course there are a couple of megabusts and some average players from the earlier years.

                          2000 was the first time I watched the draft/went to the draft party at the Ralph. I still have nightmares about Erik Flowers.

                                C-Rog, BMW, Joey Harrington

                                just those three make the lions an abysmal drafting team. Not to mention 4 wide receivers in 5 years.
