  • Interesting Article About the 1998 NFL Draft.

    ESPN: http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/draft0...ike&id=3335873

    If Leaf had performed to expectations, Michael Vick might never have found his way to Atlanta. Drew Brees never would have flourished in San Diego, perhaps diminishing his chances of landing a long-term deal in New Orleans. The New York Giants might have been unable to swing a draft-day trade with San Diego -- or anyone else -- for franchise quarterback Eli Manning. Philip Rivers certainly wouldn't be lining up under center in San Diego.
    10 out of the 32 1st round picks from the 1998 NFL Draft are still active...

    Thought this was an interesting article...

      I actually didn't enjoy that article very much. There is way too much guess work in there. Also, I feel that the Ryan Leaf saga has been beaten to death not many people really care about it anymore. Or at least I don't care. =D

            Exactly my point. Why not make an article about what if the Steelers didn't draft Terry Bradshaw in the 70s or what if Babe Ruth wasn't traded to the Red Sox?

              Could have been about how the Colts got the 1st picked and then picked Manning instead of Leaf.

                    if the queen had balls she'd be the king.

                    every year, the draft has a ripple effect on multiple teams. i understand what he's saying, but its nothing to really care for.

                      I actually liked the way he described everything. It was a well-written piece, and it really showed the impact 10-11 years later. That is generally the time that you can really see the long term impact. That generation of players is on its way out of football, so you can really see what happened because of each decision.

                          Wow you're really going out on a limb. Truly valuable insight.

                          I hate Ryan. I don't care that he indirectly brought us LT, AJ Smith, Merriman, Rivers, etc. etc. etc. That guy is a waste of air and a disgusting excuse for a human being.

                            it's funny. Atlanta at #12 had a choice between 2 guys they had rated exactly the same. and they took Brooking because he was from Atlanta.
                            they should sign Spikes though. I really think he would be a good veteran backup for us.
