    2004 4(4) PHILIP RIVERS QB NORTH CAROLINA ST
    2003 25(25) WILLIAM JOSEPH DT MIAMI (FLA.)
    2002 14(14) JEREMY SHOCKEY TE MIAMI (FLA.)
    2001 22(22) WILL ALLEN CB SYRACUSE
    2000 11(11) RON DAYNE RB WISCONSIN

    1996 5(5) CEDRIC JONES DE OKLAHOMA
    1995 17(17) TYRONE WHEATLEY RB MICHIGAN
    1994 24(24) THOMAS LEWIS WR INDIANA
    1992 14(14) DEREK BROWN TE NOTRE DAME
    1991 27(27) JARROD BUNCH RB MICHIGAN

    Out of the past 14 1st round draft picks we have had, i was shocked to realize more than half should be considered 'busts'.
    Jarrod Bunch- Bust
    Derek Brown- Bust
    Thomas Lewis- Bust
    Tyrone Wheatley- Bust
    Cedric Jones- Bust (One of the biggest of all time)
    Ike Hilliard- I would not call a bust. He was a valuable contributer for a long time.
    Shaun Williams- He was a good player for a while, couldnt stay healthy, lost his job to a rookie in Gibril Wilson
    Luke Pettigout- Solid player, not as good as we thought he would be but he was good
    Ron Dayne- Bust
    Will Allen- Not a complete bust but was never really that great
    Jeremy Shockey- great player
    William Joseph- Bust
    Philip Rivers- was traded for eli who in my opinion is not a bust
    Matthias Kiwanuka- not a bust and hell b a very good player

    We obviously do not know how to pick 1st rounders. More than half of these are busts. Whose to blame? Ernie Accorsi? Management?
    Hopefully Jerry Reese can fix this

    EA certainly can't draft.

    You forgot to mention George using 1993's 1st for Dave Brown. What year did Accorsi take over? 1998? So Youngs last draft was the Hilliard one?

    thats why i want to trade down to the 32nd and get another 2nd rounder.... if thats possible.

    1st round ....thats were the SUPERstars are found
    2nd round... thats were the probowlers are made


    2nd round....
    06- Sinorice Moss - too hurt to tell what he can do
    05- Corey Webster - okkkk 2nd round is looking that good haha (potential)
    04- Chris Snee - good pick
    03- Osi Umenyiora - great pick
    02- Tim Carter- never panned out... but Dreughns is on our team now
    01- No pick
    00- Cornelius Griffin.... was a beast til he left for a big contract


    so i say its about 50-50.... pretty much the same caliber players

    I haven't been around that long. My football knowledge goes back only 3 or 4 years.

    now THIS makes me sad. :( i dont think it's all EA's fault, he's made some good moves, and latter round steals. i think we all are anxious to see what reese does on his 1st draft day as head honcho!
