One needs look no further than the 2007 draft. Here is the order: 1 JaMarcus Russell QB Louisiana State Oakland Raiders 2 Calvin Johnson WR Georgia Tech Detroit Lions 3 Joe Thomas OT Wisconsin Cleveland Browns 4 Gaines Adams DE Clemson Tampa Bay Buccaneers 5 Levi Brown OT Penn State Arizona Cardinals 6 LaRon Landry SS Louisiana State Washington Redskins 7 Adrian Peterson RB Oklahoma Minnesota Vikings 8 Jamaal Anderson DE Arkansas Atlanta Falcons 9 Ted Ginn Jr. WR Ohio State Miami Dolphins 10 Amobi Okoye DT Louisville Houston Texans 11 Patrick Willis ILB Mississippi San Francisco 49ers 12 Marshawn Lynch RB California Buffalo Bills 13 Adam Carriker NT Nebraska St. Louis Rams 14 Darrelle Revis CB Pittsburgh New York Jets 15 Lawrence Timmons LB Florida State Pittsburgh Steelers 16 Justin Harrell DT Tennessee Green Bay Packers 17 Jarvis Moss DE Florida Denver Broncos 18 Leon Hall CB Michigan Cincinnati Bengals 19 Michael Griffin FS Texas Tennessee Titans 20 Aaron Ross CB Texas New York Giants 21 Reggie Nelson FS Florida Jacksonville Jaguars 22 Brady Quinn QB Notre Dame Cleveland Browns 23 Dwayne Bowe WR Louisiana State Kansas City Chiefs 24 Brandon Meriweather DB Miami (Fla.) New England Patriots 25 Jon Beason MLB Miami (Fla.) Carolina Panthers 26 Anthony Spencer OLB Purdue Dallas Cowboys 27 Robert Meachem WR Tennessee New Orleans Saints 28 Joe Staley OT Central Michigan San Francisco 49ers 29 Ben Grubbs G Auburn Baltimore Ravens 30 Craig Davis WR Louisiana State San Diego Chargers 31 Greg Olsen TE Miami (Fla.) Chicago Bears 32 Anthony Gonzalez Now in hindsight how should the draft have gone? Here is my take: 7 Adrian Peterson RB Oklahoma Minnesota Vikings 14 Darrelle Revis CB Pittsburgh New York Jets 11 Patrick Willis ILB Mississippi San Francisco 49ers 2 Calvin Johnson WR Georgia Tech Detroit Lions???? ... then a whole bunch of other guys. Merriweather went at about the right place considering the lack of talent in this draft.
