at the time of the pick ?
Watson for me. Although I love the pick now. Before the pick I remember saying "anything but a Tight End" and . . . whammo
Chris Canty and then Football Phil Olsen, and Dennis Byrd.
I can't say I was really disappointed with any of them when the picks were made. Seymour was surprising at the time, but hardly disappointing, since I'm a big proponent of drafting defense early and loading up there. Watson sort of wins by default, since we already had Graham. Not one would I say I was disappointed in at the time of the draft.
Ty Warren. Predraft reports had said that he was inconsistant & had a bad motor. I remember thinking, "we traded up for that?" I should put more faith in SP & BB, and less in the free scouting available over the internet.
That's why I won't disappointed with our #1 pick tomorrow. When you look at the list of #1 picks, it's easy to assume they know what they're doing. I still want Manny Lawson, though, although if Soloman is right that Vrabel wants to go back outside, that would put a crimp in my plans
Toss up between Watson and Graham, but I'll go with Graham since the Pats traded up in the draft to get this guy.
Eugene Chung. Oh he's not an option.
"None of the Above" should be an option for Beoli picks - we need to go back to previous administrations to really find picks like "Everybody Gene Chung Tonight" and Chris "Can't" Canty
Seymour, but more for who else was on the board at the time than any doubts as to his ability.
I hate to get shot down here, but I actually didn't like any of them except Wilfork, lol.
gets my vote...guy has all the physical attributes for a TE but where are the results? Heath Miller, Antonio Gates, and Dallas Clark are progressing faster than Ben.
How could Logan Mankins get any votes. Guy played the entire season. And other then his problem with punching other guys in the nuts he did well.
I'll fess up -- I was aghast at the Seymour selection versus David Terrell.
No need to remind me how that turned out.
I dont know how Seymour dissapoints some of you when hes arguably the most talented DL in the game today..only dissapointment i see is probably him missing games because of little injuries but hes dominant..sometimes a little too aggresive and gets stupid penalties but hes very good and his best days are ahead of him and reason none of our DEs get a lot of sacks is because the 3-4 is usually better for OLBs to get the sacks but Seymour is always pressuring..Warren has been steadily improving while Wilfork anchored our line pretty well at end of season when Bruschi came back and we got our pressuring the QB in more. Watson is a freak..1 of the fastest on the team and strongest..needs to concentrate a little more on catching but i think he'll play huge role for us upcoming seasons. Mankins played well in his rookie season and Graham is in the contract year but has shown flashes and I just wish we can hold on to him because hes made some big plays most recently against ATL with that huge catch and runn
There's at least two of you that aren't getting this.
The question is which player's selection disappointed you when his name was announced on draft day?
And the patriots trade up!!! We were all excited that we were getting Napolean Harris. Then Graham's name was announced.
For me, it is Graham hands down.
Since reading comprehension seems to be an issue, I'll point out the poll title again. It's which pick you were most disappointed in *when the pick was made*. Not now, but when you first heard about the pick, presumably on draft day.
Logan Mankins selection dissapointed me..hes not a guy you can get all excited about because hes an OL and worse than that..he was maybe selected ahead of a lot of better ranked OL in the draft.
Thanks for the honesty... but I was STOKED with Seymour (though will admit I thought Terrell would be good)
Awwww so you're saying Hart Lee Dykes can't be mine?
