You forgot big boy Otah...he would be the worst :(

Edit: someone beat me to it...but I thought we used a 2nd on Everette (but gave up the following year's first) while Otah was actually picked in the 1st.

 

 

We picked Brown in the 2nd but gave up 2010 first round pick to the 49ers.  Who used it in the first round of 2010 to pick Mike Lupati.  Fugging Hurney logic.

Otah was actually a great player, just couldn't stay healthy..

 

 

I think I was more pissed the we took Stewart that year at 14 and traded back in to get Otah.  When we should have drafted a Tackle at 14 and gotten Ray rice in the 2nd.

Otah was a beast when he was on the field, what Star is doing on defense as a DT to vets is what Otah was doing as a OL to vets. The health issues really ruined it for him.

If you really examine it the jets have been serious about rebuilding that front seven, they have took 3 defensive linemen in the first round the past 3 drafts and it looks like its paying off. If it didnt, they would be in a even bigger hole than they already are.

Yeah god can you imagine if we still had a good Otah before the injuries and before he stopped caring. He would probably be the best tackle in the league and our oline would be so much better

Sheldon Richardson is a good player, but he's not Star. 

 

I also like how humble Star is. My favorite thing about the big guy.

On that same note, Dre Kirkpatrick (from last year) hasn't sniffed a start for the Bengals yet either.

Never draft a Saban corner in the 1st round.. ever. It takes years to deprogram them. Kareem Jackson, in his 4th year with the Texans, seems to have FINALLY completed his deprogramming.

 

Most Bama defensive players in the Nick Saban era are pretty average when they reach the NFL. Dareus isn't a bad player, but he isn't top 3 worthy in retrospect.

 

Their offensive players are pretty good though, it's pretty confusing.

I remember driving from Nashville to Knoxville (then home the next day) listening to the draft and after it started falling like it did, I got that weird feeling in my gut thinking.."We might have a chance to get Star"...I didn't want to believe it.. I had heard all this Sheldon Richardson talk from everyone.. but then the Jets were on the board, I said well..here he is.. They are going to get Star.. I about ran off the road when they said Richardson! BAM!!! Best feeling I have had about a pick.. He is exactly what we needed.  I love that the Bills are laughing about Dwan as one of our starters thinking...the d line can't be that good.. they just need to look one over from Dwan to see what to worry about.. Good Post!

To be honest, the worst first rounder we have picked in the past 11 years was Chris Gamble, and Gamble had a great career here.

 

Julius Peppers

Jordan Gross

Chris Gamble

Thomas Davis

Deangelo WIlliams

Jon Beason

Jonathan Stewart

Cam Newton

Luke Kuechly

Star Lotulelei 

 

Please find me a better list.

When they drafted Thomas Davis I wasn't happy at the time, but got over it pretty quickly.  I loved the Jonathan Stewart pick at the time too.. If he can just stay on the field.. Don't forget we did draft Otah in the first round that year we picked Stewart.. Stewart 13th and Otah 19th..SO he is the worst..

Seems kinda weird that the best NFL players Saban's Bama has produced is offensive linemen and a wide receiver.

Their defensive players and running backs (especially) seem to be greatly overrated.

Monsta, I agree. I wanted us to trade down and take Marcel Dareus or Fairly. However, if the rumors are true, the Panthers wanted Mark Barron over Luke, until the Bucs jumped on him. Still, I can say that I wanted Luke, but only late (draft week).

The point of the matter is, Cam, Luke, Star---that is a hat trick.

Barron is going to be a d good SS and I hope we pick a guy with his talent in future drafts but Luke is lights out.
