I'm bored and dying of draft fever. So, for discussion, who are some prospects of the past years that you were wrong about?
David Carr - This was the first draft I really paid attention to at all. To this day, I think Carr could have been a great quarterback given better surroundings in his developmental years.
Donte Stallworth - I thought this guy was going to torch the league
EJ Henderson - He had a good career, all things considered. But I was 100% on his guy's bandwagon the year we passed on him for Barnett. At this time, we desperately needed a run-stopping Mike, and I was convinced this guy was the next Jeremiah Trotter
Erasmus James - Similarly, I thought he was the next Jevon Kearse
Kyle Orton - I was hoping the year we took A-Rod that we'd grab him in the third. He reminded me of Brett, back when we were looking for Brett's replacement.
Of this group, James is the only one I would really classify as a true bust. But none of them lived up to my expectations.
