We are seeing what happens when you miss in the first round so many times. Nick Saban hit gold with Ronnie Brown but other than that, we haven't had a real good first round pick (other than Brown) since OJ McDuffie and or Tim Bowens. I knew our draft history was bad, but wow, I took a look at this and this is literally unbelievable. Take a look at this comparison of first round picks the past 10+ years and the 2 teams that have been the best during this decade. *WARNING! NOT FOR THOSE WITH A WEAK STOMACH* Miami Dolphins 2007- Ted Ginn 2006- Jason Allen 2005- Ronnie Brown 2004- Vernon Carey 2003- NO PICK 2002- NO PICK 2001- Jamar Fletcher 2000- NO PICK 1999- NO PICK 1998- John Avery 1997- Yatil Green How pathetic is that? 4 times we didn't pick and other than 2 picks we have absolutely nothing with the remaining picks. I know the jury is still out on Ginn but in 4 games he has done nothing. He looks tentative, scared and isn't showing his speed. Ronnie Brown is a super star, Jason Allen is a bust, Vernon Carey is a good right tackle but not a franchise left tackle. 2 straight no picks, Jamar Fletcher was absolutely awful and cost us the playoffs in 2002 vs. the Pats. We are in no position to ever make fun of anyone's drafting, not even the Jets. This is downright awful Indianapolis Colts 2007- Anthony Gonzalez 2006- Joseph Addai 2005- Marlin Jackson 2004- NO PICK 2003- Dallas Clark 2002- Dwight Freeny 2001- Reggie Wayne 2000- Rob Morris 1999- Edgerin James 1998- Peyton Manning 1997- Tarki Glenn 1996- Marvin Harrison (Had to throw this one on here) Damn Bill Polian can build a team. Look at the picks from 2006-1996. Every year they landed a guy who is invaluable to their success. (Marlin Jackson is decent and obviously there was a no pick in 2004, but the other guys on that list is ridiculous. Manning and Harrison make up the NFL's best passing combo ever, Edge and Addai are 2 guys that were or will be considered top 10 backs for at least a 5 year period. Dallas Clark and Anthony Gonzalez are guys that fit their scheme perfectly, Tarik Glenn was one of the league's best LTs for years and Reggie Wayne is also a great receiver. Polian can draft. New England Patriots 2007- Brandon Meriweather 2006- Laurence Maroney 2005- Logan Mankins 2004- Vince Wilfork & Ben Watson 2003- Ty Warren 2002- Daniel Graham 2001- Richard Seymour 2000- NO PICK 1999- Damien Woodey & Andy Katzenmeyer 1998- Robert Edwards & Tebucky Jones 1997- Chris Canty The Pats went a different route from the Colts, but were just about as effective in their drafting as the Colts. A franchise LT, built the best defensive line in the game, and good running backs too boot. They werenâ€™t great drafts prior to the 21st century, but multiple picks in '99 and '98 helps big time. The Pats always seem to plug any one in but these drafts certainly have a big impact. Drafting is so important in the NFL and we've seen mediocre teams carried by a few defensive stars over the past 3 years. But finally, we are seeing our lack of draft success in 2007. I'm literally embarrassed of that list we field from the past 12 years or so.
