While I think that Andre Hopkins would be a solid player and probably day one starter I think that he has less of this potential and would probably be a long term solid starter but not a star. Which guys do you think flash the most Pro Bowl Potential who have a realistic chance of being available when we pick in the first?
It's a tough question to answer.

If you may, let me recount the biggest draft bust I've ever chosen:
Ryan Leaf.

OK, so I hardly knew about stuffs back then; and there were no Internet, nor game tapes to evaluate.

Funny sheets is that we were on vacation to Seattle at the time; and I was pretty hot on Leaf's trail, some locals gave me the "semi-royal" treatment.

We drove around the Pudget Sound to get to Port Angeles to take the ferry over to the island; I guess the eagerness to converse to make friends carried me away.

I was so high on Leaf as the locals were; it's fun to recount the experience.

Man, you wouldn't believe the pedestal they built for him.
In retrospect, I don't blame them.

Hey, I thought he was more than pretty good, just the same.

It was a great vacation for sure; and the fact that I was completely wrong on a QB prospect made it even more memorable.
I had such a good time being wrong, hahahaha!
