Re: Mock 1st round Grade Yourself
2002 - I'm with the rest of you guys on this one. I didn't really care. I did prefer Carr or Peppers though.
2003 - Wanted Andre. Also liked Terence Newman but didn't really think there was any chance we would take him.
2004 - Really wanted Steven Jackson or D.J. Williams but I was fine with the Dunta pick.
2005 - Hated the TJ pick. I was very upset when we didn't get Brown at #13 and let NO trade up for him. Then I got doubly pissed off when we missed Derrick Johnson. My third option was Alex Barron but we passed on him as well.
2006 - Initially wanted Vince Young but when it became clear we were keeping Carr I was hoping for Mario. Glad we did that.
2007 - I absolutely hated the Okoye pick and I have been very vocal about that. We got suckered there. I would have been happy with Michael Griffin, Patrick Willis, Leon Hall, or Darrelle Revis, in that order. I liked Revis a lot but thought that Hall would be the superior player.
2008 - Wanted Antione Cason or Chris Johnson badly. I was excited when we traded back because I figured we were targeting one of those guys. I really thought CJ would fall to us but he didn't. I thought the Brown pick was a really really solid pick, I just had a mancrush on Cason.
2009 - Loved the Cushing pick. I felt like we had to come out of the draft with either him or Malcolm Jenkins. Jenkins went right before us so we took Cushing. Thought it was perfect.
