      I didn't get anything right in 08. I thought Brohm would be a star and McFadden was the second coming of Marcus Allen.

        When you miss essentially to straight years and spend your time "rehabbing" by blazing every day and getting hooked on pain pills, it's usually not conducive to professional athletic career haha.

        But you're right, in the few games he played in during his rookie season, he flashed elite potential.

          Good topic, I'll weigh in


          Cedric Benson - I was a huge fan and I was burned for it the first few years of his career. Good to see him turning things around now though.

          Derrick Johnson - Still my favorite LB prospect since I started watching the draft. If he played in a traditional 4-3 at the WILL position, I really think he would of been a star. Scheme changes and an inability to get off blocks kinda shut down his career though.


          Antonio Cromartie - And here is my favorite CB prospect since I started watching the draft. Awful, huh? I wanted him on the Ravens so badly that year...painful to see the way his career has gone.

          Marcedes Lewis - I thought he was going to be the next Antonio Gates. No joke.

          Jimmy Williams - Loved the size, loved the speed, loved the game tape. Again, this one really hurts.

          *** I loved Vince Young too, but I think the jury is still out on that one.


          Jamaal Anderson - I LOVED him as a DE prospect. Thought he was going to be an awesome player.

          Chris Houston - I loved him as well, big fan of the Falcons draft class that year. I thought he was going to be the next great press man corner in the NFL. Whoops

          That's probably enough embarrassment for now, I think some of the other guys are too early to admit you are wrong about.

            absolutely agree. but i think it was a bit different from the jamarcus russell laziness. i feel like he was looking good, even in the preseason in his second year before he got hurt again. i think that pretty much ended him.

            Alot of people don't really remember that either. He started his career as a rookie on fire too, I think he had 3 TD's through his first two weeks(I'm not looking now so not sure), and he really looked like he was gonna make something of himself.

            It's tough to bounce back from multiple collar bone breaks anyway though, him just getting incredibly lazy and fat didn't help the rehab any but I think he was on his way to being really good before the constant injuries.

              He had that one awesome game the season opener against the Cardinals. Thats also the game that kinda but Anquan Boldin on the radar. Rodgers looked legit in that game, tough catches, going deep etc. I thought he would be a sure thing.

                Robert Gallery - I didn't want the Giants to trade for Eli so that we could grab Gallery and try and make it back to the superbowl
                Brady Quinn - I bought the hype
                Chris Houston - I saw a physical corner with blanketing man skills.
                Antonio Cromartie - Was a huge fan of his upside
                Alex Smith - I thought he was a franchise QB
                Derrick Harvey - Uhh
                Chad Jackson - It gets even worse
                Reggie Nelson - Why god, why must Reggie Nelson be ********?
                Charles Rogers - And he looked so promising early
                Roy Williams - Seriously detroit, this was the WR you hit on before Megatron.
                Jamaal Anderson - I thought he'd be the prospect Mario Williams was supposed to be.

                  I thought Dwayne Jarret was going to be a nasty WR in the nfl. I still wish he was :(

                    i was borderline a ****** for cromartie....if he ever took the time to really tighten up his game we'd be looking at the best and highest paid CB in the league right now, just so ******* talented.

                    he was probably my third favorite CB prospect ever, behind pacman (i said it) and the upcoming patrick peterson <333

                      I feel like a lot of the guys I was wrong about (Russell, Quinn, Mike Williams) all had some issues, and if you told me that Russell and Mike would get lazy and never put in the work after getting paid, I wouldn't have been all that surprised.

                        In his defense Gallery has turned out to be a pretty decent guard, at least he is not all ready out of the league like some other guys.

                        That said I would have had no problem with him going first over all, I really thought he was that good.

                                I was so happy the Lions picked Rodgers so the Texans could get Andre Johnson. He was my favorite player in college that year.

                                Matt Ryan was also one I thought wouldnt do well at all.

                                I am not going to be wrong on being a homer for Taylor Mays though.
