Okay, since we all know that we are the real experts and the teams are foolish to pay GMs large sums of money since we could do the job more successfully and for half the cost, let's show everyone some of our greatest picks. And to show how ballsy we are, let's be candid and list some of our failures. List the following:
A. A prospect you was a pro bowler in waiting and would have been picked much higher if teams just listened to you.
B. A prospect thought to be taken too high, but proved to be worthy of the pick and you were all over it.
C. A prospect who was both rated and taken far too high who you knew beyond a shadow of a doubt would be a bust.
D. A prospect that fell and became a "steal" on draft day, but only on draft day just as you predicted.
Here's mine to start things off:
A. Anquan Boldin
- excellent at finding spot spot in coverage, attacked the ball and then bullied the defender. Also, I couldn't understand how Ed Reed wasn't picked in the top ten over Roy Williams. The guy did the exact same thing he does now in college but apparently no one noticed.
B. Nnamdi Asomougha
- Everyone was like "huh?" I was like, yeah! Loved his size, wheels and smarts coming out. I'll throw in Lamar Houston in the high as well.
C. Cade McNown
- Honestly, I couldn't begin to see the attraction to this bum. I wanted to say Vernon Gholston but I have mentioned him too much already, so I'll make Heath Shuler my runner up.
D. Antajj Hawthorne
- As a Raiders fan, I wish I was wrong on this one, but when a "first round talent" falls all the way to the 4th because he smoked weed, he probably can't ball.
