    2005: Anyone but Mike Williams and Millen tarred and feathered

    2006: Sims at the time fit in the Tampa 2 but I wanted Deuce Luitui over Daniel Bullocks in the 2nd. Still looking for that guard. Oh and Millen tarred and feathered.

    2007: Calvin thank you Jesus, but the 2nd Round was an abortion of epic proportion. Trade back instead of taking Posluzny(didn't really fit Tampa 2) but I know he's a gamer. Also wanted Justin Blalock too, still looking for that left guard. Then we trade back, could have had David Harris but we take Stanton. Trade back into 2nd and take Alama Francis and Gerald Alexander. Three 2nd round picks all a waste. Barf city. Oh and Millen tarred and feather.

    2008: Can't complain about Gosder, some people wanted Brandon Albert but the trade back allowed us to get Kevin Smith. I'll allow it not that they run anything by me though. 2nd Round though, more abortion. Jordan Dizon reeeeeeeeeaaaaccchhhhhh. I wanted Dan Connor, can you tell I went to Penn State or Calais Campbell. Seriously I had to witness 3 years of Paris Lenon as the starting Mike Linebacker. I should get an award for that. Oh and Millen tarred and feathered.

    2009: Have to admit I wanted Maualaga over Pettigrew but when we got Larry Foote the next day I was happy. Some people wanted Oher but we'll see what we get next year at Left Tackle. Stud LT from 2010,Gosder and Pettigrew equals awesome outside blocking for many years. I like Mayhew so far. No tars and feathers for him but Millen if you see him you know what to do. Home Alone style.

      That was by far one of the ugliest drafts i've ever seen a team make. Jacob Rogers, Julia Jones, Stephen Peterman, Bruce Thornton, Sean Ryan and Nathan Jones. We did get Patrick Crayton in the 7th, but i don't think that was anywhere near enough to salvage that abortion of a draft.
      I remember watching that going, "Jackson is a perfect fit for them" then they traded back and took Jones. I said to myself, "what a jackass"

      Oh, and to the original topic: Aaron Rodgers in '05, and Kenny Phillips in '08.

        2007 NFL Draft -
        What I wanted: 1. Adrian Peterson 2.Patrick Willis 3.Marshawn Lynch
        What I got: Marshawn Lynch
        I, like almost every football fan felt that Peterson would be the better of the two backs. Now, it's pretty obvious that he is considering he's the best in all of football. I thought Patrick Willis had all the tools to be a great player. And he is.

        2nd Round:
        What I wanted: Paul Posluszny
        What I got: Paul Posluszny

        3rd Round:
        What I wanted: Daymeion Hughes
        What I got: Trent Edwards

        2006 NFL Draft
        -
        What I wanted - Haloti Ngata, Brodrick Bunkley
        What I got - Donte Whitner
        Many Bills fans were split on who they wanted - Bunkley, Ngata, and Winston Justice.
        I was a huge Ngata fan. Our run defense sucked and I wanted to fix it. But instead we have Donte 'Pile Jumper' Whitner.

        2nd Round -
        When I saw we traded up, I though it was going to be for...
        Winston Justice, or Nick Mangold

        What I got - John McCargo :(

          2002-Wanted Ed Reed-got bryan Thomas
          2003-I was a ****** and kinda liked the D-Rob pick. I thought he would shore up the middle of the defense for years.
          2004-I liked getting Vilma. You can't say no to a Miami defender.
          2005-I liked the Justin Miller pick but I would have preferred to stay where we were and take Heath Miller.Also, I'm still a little disgusted about taking a kicker in the second.
          2006-I think every Jets fan wanted Dbrick. In the second I was happy with Clemens. I kinda wanted MJD, but mostly because of keak.
          2007-I was hoping for Quinn. Thank god I wasn't in charge. I love you Darelle Revis. In the second I wanted Brian Leonard for obvious reasons, but even at the time I recognized Harris was the right pick.
          2008-Wanted to trade down, but Gholston was the guy I wanted at that spot.
          2009- Liked the trade up for Sanchez. If we had stayed in our spot, I wanted Britt.

            I started following the draft with any real passion back in 2005 so here goes...

            2005 - I really wanted Braylon Edwards but he was gone. Wanted Mike Williams secondly and Pacman third, we draft Troy Williamson, that top 10 is just so full of fail though...

            2nd first I was happy with James, was hoping Brown would fall, when Rodgers was still available there I really wanted him the most. Alex Barron was the third guy I wanted. The Rodgers one certainly hurts the most in hindsight.

            2006 - I really wanted Bush, Ferguson, Hawk or Huff but none of them fell. Also wanted Wimbley and NGata who didn't make it to our pick. At the pick I wanted Maroney or Holmes. Was perfectly satisfied with the Greenway pick though, thought it was a safe pick, has so far been just that. I also really wanted us to trade up for Mangold when he was lingering at the end of the first.

            2007 - Wanted Calvin more than anyone. Also liked Timmons, Willis, Okoye and Landry. Liked Peterson but his injury history had me really scared of him. Glad I was wrong there and that we picked who we did. I really wanted Jarrett or Woodley in the 2nd but has also happy with Rice, I try and imagine how scary our DL would be with Woodley opposite the Wall and Allen, then again, with the way Rice is playing that pick looks great.

            2008 - We traded the first for Allen, I liked the move. I remember really liking Calais Campbell in the 2nd. Also Malcolm Kelly, Ray Rice and Chad Henne. Was ok with Johnson but certainly not excited.

            2009 - Was hoping like hell that one of Maclin and Oher would fall to us(of the guys that actually could have). Was a half pace away from furious when we didn't take Oher for Harvin whose red flag covered status had me very concerned. He has so far been brilliant but I will forever hold my breath on him. Would have liked to move up to get Maualuga or Laurinaitis when they free fell to the 2nd as insurance and because I'm not a big Leber fan. Was delighted when Loadholt fell to us. Asher Allen was a real wtf pick to me but I have an irrational fandom for McCauley. Wouldn't have minded taking a chance on Nate Davis also.


            Props to BK on the sig!

              I feel the exact same way on all of these. Maybe a little less hate on Whitner, though.
              Poz was the best pick ever. Considering Peterson and Willis were gone by 12, Lynch-Poz was as good as it got.

              That pick HAD to be Winston Justice. It just had to be. Not that it matters now.


              I'll try the other years I remember.

              Wanted - Roethlisberger. Lee Evans or Michael Jenkins since I knew he wouldn't be there.
              Got - Leevans. <3.

              #22
              Wanted - Not this pick. I was hoping for Schaub or Losman later on; mostly Schaub :(
              Got - JP. Oh, JP.

              #74
              The fact that Schaub was still there at 74 still kills me.
              Wanted - Joey Thomas or Chris Cooley. Really hitting on both ends of the scale, there.

              2005

              Wanted - a first round pick
              Got - Worst draft ever

              Got - Eric Wood

              Wanted - William Beatty
              Got - Jairus Byrd. Awesome.

              Wanted - Didn't know we traded for this pick until hours later. Would've wanted Beatty.

                1999-wanted Aaron Gibson, the OT from Wisconsin. i remember thinking it was a given that the Packers would take him if he fell to 'em...it was my first time watching the entire first round of the draft. We took Antuan Edwards.

                2000-wasn't really interested in football this year. crazy year.

                2001-Wanted Koren Robinson real bad. Packers took Jamaal Reynolds. I still think K-Rob would've had a much better carreer in GB. still wanted a WR in the second round...and had my heart set on Chris Chambers. Packers took Robert Ferguson. i win. twice.

                2002-Still needed a WR. i wanted either Josh Reed or Antonio Bryant. took Javon Walker. He turned out to the most talented. but, injuries and attitude killed his career.

                2003-really needed a LB. I wanted EJ Henderson. took Nick Barnett.

                2004-hmmm...can't remember who i wanted....but, it wasn't Ahmad Carroll and my guy probably had a better carreer than grabby smurf.

                2005-did not want Aaron Rodgers. didn't care who we took. as long as it wasn't him. oops. think i wanted Brodney Pool. oops.

                2006-I wanted AJ Hawk badly. that's who we took. I also really wanted Darryn Colledge in the second round.

                2007-I wanted Robert Meachem. we took Justin Harrell.
                in the second round, i really wanted Sidney Rice. we took Brandon Jackson.

                2008-I wanted Dustin Keller. we traded down for Jordy Nelson.

                2009-I wanted BJ Raji. that's who we got.

                  2006 Round 1 -
                  Who we got: Ernie Sims.
                  Who I wanted Winston Justice
                  Millen actually got one on me here but hey it was my first draft.

                  2006 Round 2:
                  Who we got: Dan Bullocks
                  Who I wanted: Dan Bullocks
                  I remember being happy with the pick considering we missed out on Whitner and Huff.

                  2006 Round 3:
                  Who we got: Brian Calhoun
                  Who I wanted: Elvis Dummerville
                  I didn't know much about the draft but I knew Elvis aka Sack Jebus could play football. Highly considered a first rounder at the beginning of the season fell because of height issues.

                  2006 Round 5:
                  Who we got: Jonathan Scott
                  Who I wanted: Jonathan Scott

                    2006: I was actually very satisfied with the Greenway pick in round one, considering that's where many expected him to fall. I would have liked for us to trade up for Cutler with all the extra picks we had but I'm content with Greenway. I'm just a tad worried with what we'll do at the position after Favre is through playing. In the second round I did like the Cedric Griffin pick actually but was absolutely enraged with the Ryan Cook selection. We ended up absolutely reaching for a center only to inevitably move him over to left tackle. I wanted us to take Marcus McNeill with that selection. I hate Ryan Cook so much. I also would've preferred to not trade up for Tarvaris Jackson when we could have sat back and taken Croyle, and Abdul Hodge whom I really wanted. Though I admit I was very intrigued with Jackson, and still remain to be to this day.

                    2007: I was actually very happy with our draft selections this year.

                    2008: I was hoping we'd take Desean Jackson instead of Tyrell Johnson in the second. The Jared Allen trade..superb. I hate John David Booty. So much. I still want Andre Woodson.

                    2009: I was praying that either Jeremy Maclin or Michael Oher would fall to us in round one. I was so upset when Maclin got taken but Oher was still there and I had figured it to be an obvious selection but nooooooo Childress. Though Harvin has been pretty impressive so far, with his only problem him having a bit of the dropsies. Loadhalt was good considering we took a receiver in the first. I did prefer DJ Moore to Asher Allen in the third though.

                      Bored as hell waiting for class so lets give this a shot. I've been aware of the draft since 1998 so I'll try to start there but I might not be able to remember what my thoughts were back then

                      1998-This sounds like hindsight but I remember Moss's free fall and was hoping the Steelers would grab him. We got Faneca and Hines Ward in this draft so it worked out.

                      My Pick-Randy Moss WR

                      Steeler Pick-Alan Faneca OG

                      Advantage-Steelers

                      1999-I have little recollection of this draft. I don't feel that I would have drafted Troy Edwards. Just judging by the prospects that i typically go for I would have drafted Jevon Kearse

                      My Pick-Jevon Kearse DE

                      Steelers Pick-Troy Edwards WR

                      Advantage-ME

                      2000-I would have drafted Plaxico Burress just as the steelers did in 2000. I want to say that I would have drafted Urlacher who went one pick later but I wouldn't have.

                      My Pick-Plaxico Burress WR

                      Steelers Pick-Plaxico Burress WR

                      Advantage-Push

                      2001-Im not sure who I would have drafted in this spot hopefully i would have had the sense to draft Casey Hampton. I allways remember our secondary being a weakness so I might have went with Nate Clements

                      My Pick Nate Clements CB

                      Steelers Pick-Casey Hampton DT

                      Advantage-Steelers

                      2002-Once again not sure what i was thinking at the time but it seems like I wouldn't have drafted Kendall Simmons in all honesty I might have went with Patrick Ramsey because at the time I wasn't a fan of Kordell Stewart

                      My Pick-Patrick Ramsey QB

                      Steelers Pick-Kendall Simmons OG

                      Advantage-Steelers

                      2003-I know exactly what I felt during this draft. I hated us trading up to draft Troy Polamulu. I thought that we were trading up to draft Larry Johnson. I was wrong

                      My Pick-Larry Johnson RB

                      Steelers Pick-Troy Polamalu S

                      Advantage-Steelers

                      2004-I wanted BIG BEN and I this isn't revisonist history, I know that for a fact.

                      My Pick-Ben Roethlisberger QB

                      Steelers Pick-Ben Roethlisberger QB

                      Advantage-Push

                      2005-I wanted either Heath Miller or Matt Jones...alas I really feel that in the end I would have gone with Matt Jones but the Jags picked him before the steelers could so I would have went with Miller..thank god

                      My Pick-Heath Miller TE

                      Steelers Pick-Heath Miller TE

                      Advantage-Push

                      2006-I hated the Satonio Holmes pick. Really, Really hated it. I would have went with Lendale White

                      My Pick-Lendale White RB

                      Steelers Pick-Santonio Holmes WR

                      Advantage-Steelers

                      2007-I was warming up to all the talk of the Steelers taking Timmons or Revis but before that I was really into Jarvis Moss. Its a good thing we didn't go that route. The information that i heard from the team helped me ween off of Moss and i was fine with Timmons or Revis by draft day, but if it was just me in charge I might have went for Moss.

                      My Pick-Jarvis Moss DE

                      Steelers Pick-Lawrence Timmons

                      Advantage Steelers

                      2008-I really liked the Medenhall pick and if he had fallen to me I would have taken him as well.

                      My Pick-Rashard Mendenhall RB

                      Steeler Pick-Rashard Mendenhall RB

                      Advantage-Push

                      2009-I wasn't a fan of the Ziggy Hood pick and he hasn't done anything yet to make me think it was the right pick. But to be fair he hasn't had that much of an oppurtunity to shine. I would have went with Rey Maualuga. It wasn't a need I just felt he was the best player on the board.

                      My Pick-Rey Maualuga LB

                      Steeler-Ziggy Hood DE

                      Advantage-TBD

                        So my first round picks from a ten year span for the steelers would have been.

                        1998-Randy Moss

                        1999-Jevon Kearse

                        2003-Larry Johnson

                        2006-Lendale White

                        2007-Jarvis Moss

                        2008-Rashard Medenhall

                        2009-Rey Maulaga

                        Looking back I should change the Medenhall pick because of the Lendale White and the Larry Johnson picks that proceded it. I allways wanted another power back to replace Bettis but the steelers seemed to fail to give it me every year, Hence the three first round running backs

                          2003: Larry Johnson - I really wanted Troy Polamalu but we traded back with Pittsburgh who took him. LJ was good for two seasons but since then he's been trash and not worth anything.

                          2005: Derrick Johnson - That's who I wanted. I'm glad we got him at 16th as I wasn't sure he'd be there. He has never lived up to expectations though and isn't starting now.

                          2006: Tamba Hali - I thought it was way too early for him to go. I wanted either Jonathan Joseph or Kelly Jennings. Hali was okay for a few seasons but he is responding really well to the transition to OLB and is one of the hardest workers we have. I'm glad we took him there.

                          2007: Dwayne Bowe - I remember really wanting Brady Quinn to fall one more spot so we could take him at 23 until the Browns traded back up to 22 and grabbed him. Bowe is by far our biggest weapon on offense but he has had a case of the drops. Seems to be working hard and will be a good target for Cassel for years.

                          2008: Glenn Dorsey / Branden Albert - When we picked Dorsey I was pretty pissed we didn't take Branden Albert. 5th might have been a little too high for him but OL was a huge huge weakness and I was confident in him being able to kick out to LT. Got them both in the end. Albert has been very solid and Dorsey was out of position but is playing well at 3-4DE. I think he'll stick there.

                          2009: Tyson Jackson - Was not ecstatic about this pick to say the least. Wanted Aaron Curry or Eugene Monroe here. Curry is a stud and Monroe would have instantly upgraded the weakest part of our team, especially after paying a lot of money to Cassel. Jackson has looked alright but probably still would have preferred Monroe there.

                            Who I wanted Winston Justice
                            Millen actually got one on me here but hey it was my first draft.

                            2006 Round 2:
                            Who we got: Dan Bullocks
                            Who I wanted: Dan Bullocks
                            I remember being happy with the pick considering we missed out on Whitner and Huff.

                            2006 Round 3:
                            Who we got: Brian Calhoun
                            Who I wanted: Elvis Dummerville
                            I didn't know much about the draft but I knew Elvis aka Sack Jebus could play football. Highly considered a first rounder at the beginning of the season fell because of height issues.

                            2006 Round 5:
                            Who we got: Jonathan Scott

                            We got: Calvin Johnson
                            I wanted: To take that trade with the Bucs for their entire draft and take Gaines Adams. otherwise I wanted Calvin Johnson.

                            I wanted: Drew Stanton
                            I didn't really like anyone here but I was a fan of Stanton's for him to learn for a few years behind Kitna.

                            2007 Round 2:
                            We got: Gerald Alexander

                            I wanted Gaines Adams.

                            I fully remember the IRC chat that I was on at this pick.

                            We got: Gosder Cherillus
                            I wanted: To not trade down and get Branden Albert but if the trade had to happen I would have wanted Goz.
