Didn't like the Davis and Stew picks, and yes I threw things.
Liked the Beason pick.
Was so so on the Williams pick.
IMO you do not have to use first round draft picks to find runningbacks. That is a position that can be had later in the draft, and for less money.
In the first you go after QB's, LT's, DT's, CB's, DE's etc. Rarely are those positions found later in the draft, but every now and again you can get one.
RB's and LB's are found all over the draft board.
In 2005 you did not like the Davis pick and would have preffered a QB,LT,CB,DE. Well Fox never ever wanted anything to do with a rookie a QB. If he did maybe we could have had Aaron Rodgers. We also were set at DT with Buckner and Jenkins. In 06 we replaced Buckner with Kemo.
The years you mentioned we had Gross at LT.
We also had Ken Lucas and Chris Gamble at corner.
We had Julius Peppers and either rucker or Charles Johnson at DE.
Aside from 2008 we had Jenkins
So that leaves a DT over Stewart in 08. Stewart went 13th overall. A DT did not come off the board until pick 29 and it was Kentwan Balmer. I'll take Stewart thanks.
And just to be thorough the next DT was Trevor Laws at 47. No where near the first round did any DT come off the board that year.
See what I mean by looking at things objectively now?
