Yeah, I remember people on the Huddle freaking out when I suggested we should trade up for Peterson if he got in range.

In this place's defense, most people were lusting after Willis pre-draft



and I think Peterson had a nasty injury his Junior year ?

Broke his collarbone but he made it back for the Fiesta Bowl.

By overtime he was back to his dominating self, which I believe played a large role on Boise State going for the now famous Statue of Liberty 2 point conversion.

well, we drafted a 1st round RB in 2006, can't go back to back in 2007......well, Hurney might of but a normal GM wouldnt

Calvin Johnson being listed as one of the worst picks of the draft, and he is now the NFL record holder in single season receiving yards. Funny how things turn out.

I was one of those guys. I also remember being upset about passing on Derrick Johnson for Thomas Davis

Like Bobby Knight said when Portland said they didn't want Michael Jordan because they already had a SG and needed a Center:

"Draft him and play him at Center."
