    Top 10 picks are atrocious. CB turned safety Antrelle Rolle is the only guy w/ a good career. You can't hang yer hat on a safety. Picks 1-7 were all complete busts, some w/ enough flashes of talent to show you they wasted it.

    I think there was some guy who backed up Brett Favre.

    Yeah, agree, I think Rolle probably ended up being the value of that class.

    Smith was never very good. Ronnie Brown had an amazing Combine so he shot up the draft board... problem was, he wasn't ever a natural runner (his college teammate Cadillac Williams was VERY natural but, alas, injury prone).

    PacMan started up promising but was a headcase and ultimately kinda sucked. Edwards did okay for a few years but was also a headcase. Carlos Rogers was a decent CB, never anything special.

    Benson, Williamson, Mike Willams-- all busts. Williams did manage to generate one good comeback season, at least.

    Edit: Be interesting to see how the rest of that draft looked. Great note on Favre (2nd rounder) who went down as an all-time great.

    Ware and Merriman were off the board next. Bottom of the first round had some really good players. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2005_NFL_draft

    I'll never forget Benson crying on stage and putting on the Jeebus/Humble act, then he held out in camp and wound up getting hurt.

    One player don't make a draft, and he is probably the only one in the draft destined for Canton.

    Rodgers was certainly the best player in that class but I'm guessing there are some notable 2nd to 5th rounders taken in 2005, I'm just too lazy to do the research.

    Yeah, some good players on there. Ware has had a great career. Johnson was tremendous. Merriman was roid-rage central but he was a force for a few years. White has been a great pro, so have Mankins and Miller, and Rodgers will likely be in the Hall.

    Matt Jones ahead of Aaron Rodgers...:facepalm:. Under which scenario would Jones have been a better pick than Rodgers? I guess that's why they're the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    1 Kansas City Chiefs - Eric Fisher OT
    2 Jacksonville Jaguars - Luke Joeckel OT
    3 Miami Dolphins - Dion Jordan DE
    4 Philadelphia Eagles - Lane Johnson OT
    5 Detroit Lions - Ezekiel Ansah DE
    6 Cleveland Browns - Barkevious Mingo DE
    7 Arizona Cardinals - Jonathan Cooper G
    8 St. Louis Rams - Tavon Austin WR
    9 New York Jets - Dee Milliner CB
    10 Tennessee Titans - Chance Warmack G
    11 San Diego Chargers - D. J. Fluker OT
    12 Oakland Raiders - D. J. Hayden CB
    13 New York Jets - Sheldon Richardson† DT
    14 Carolina Panthers - Star Lotulelei DT
    15 New Orleans Saints - Kenny Vaccaro S




    2013 was pretty awful, I doubt anyone in the top 15 other than Sheldon Richardson will be remembered.

    Edwards was a major disappointment. He had the goods to be a star and elected to be a chump instead. In 2007 he looked ready to join the NFL elite. It was all downhill from there. He was awesome at Michigan.

    Fuckin Milliner just got hurt again, expected to miss the first 2-4 games. Dude is a China doll and if he actually makes it onto the field he's a nickel back at best.

    I don't care if he looked like the second coming of Jim Brown, I would never draft a player named Barkevious.

    Combine superstar. They tried to make him a TE or WR, no?

    At least he got away from Tila Tequila alive. That is better than Woody Johnson's daughter did.

    Most of the Browns first round picks bring the humor factor.
