Does anyone else have a feeling that if people had actually done the scouting and used the forumlas they do now that draft would've been totally different?
To some degree, but I think it's a matter of perspective too. Go back and look at the drafts from 6-7 years ago too, they are full of some major turds. Same goes for any draft. Recent drafts just seem more "logical" because we haven't yet completely written off a lot of these players.
That's true. I just think that nowadays coaches would've been able to red flag a few things they wouldn't have now. I guess a lot of what coaches know to flag now, were picked up because of crappy drafts like that one.
Leon Searcy was the leagues top RT for several years. He was more than solid and hardly a bust.
And then the Ravens threw money at him in the quest to repeat after winning the Super Bowl. Dammit!! I thought the Ravens weren't going to be associated with this abismal and retched draft before their existance but I am proven wrong.....

On another note, Nicklas Backstrom is amazingly good.
Meanwhile, in hockey the other night, the Washington Capitals' Eric Belanger gets hit with a stick, loses EIGHT teeth, has an instant root canal in the locker room, comes back out and PLAYS and never says boo.
So new rule, NBA: Unless you have a root canal at halftime, SHUT UP AND PLAY!
