Look Back At Who YOU Wanted For Your Team
This is supposed to be a fun thread to look back on players you wanted your team to select, and they chose elsewhere. This can be a player that would have turned out great, or one that wouldn't have.
In 2002, I wanted Ed Reed for the Titans instead of Albert Haynesworth.
Outcome: Albert was one of the best DT's in the NFL for about 3 seasons, but Ed Reed has been one of the best FS's ever in the NFL. In addition, we have received inconsistent FS ever since.
In 2005, my favorite player in that draft was Antrel Rolle. We selected Pacman Jones and in a few years he was gone due to off the field issues.
Outcome: While Rolle hasn't became the player I thought he would, he's still a very good player. Pacman was on his way to becoming one of the best CBs in the game, but you have to think back now that Rolle would have been the better selection
In 2007, I really wanted Dwayne Bowe. We selected Michael Griffin. Outcome: Both were areas of needs and both have turned into good players. I think the edge would go to Bowe.
In 2011, I wanted DE/DT JJ Watt. We selected QB Jake Locker.
Outcome: Watt is one of the best defensive players in the NFL while Locker has been up and down throughout his career, he has looked really good at times, but also awful at times. Graded out right now, JJ Watt would have been the selection
