    I'd add Matt Cassel to that list.

    I don't think Cassel can be mentioned with those other 5. Not yet.

    He turned in a winning season and will likely transform magically into a couple of draft picks and maybe a Tony Gonzalez. You've got to rank that dude high.

    Steve Grogan was a 5th round pick, so I would add him to the list.

    I'd replace 4 or 5 with Grogan. Probably 4.

    IF Cassel nets us a bockbuster trade deal and those picks turn out to be productive members, then Matt's in the arguement.

    High, yes. I just think that 5 (plus Grogan and probably some others) is too esteemed to add Matt to quite yet. Maybe soon. IMO, of course.

    Ah, I must have a dust speck on my eye where the 5 is. I was just thinking of noteworthy low picks. My bad.

    I don't think Givens belongs on that list. He was strictly a system reciever who virtually disappreared into thin air when he left the team.

    Still, I believe he was strictly a Tom Brady by-product.

    No way. Givens was huge in 2 SB wins. He was a 1b WR, very clutch, tough and a real winner. Of course he played better with Brady than he would have with another QB, but who wouldn't? You can't call him "a Tom Brady by-product" without wondering why so many other WRs played at such a lower level with Brady than DG did.
