Default Was the 2004 Draft overrated ?

If you're a Texan fan, you gotta say no way because our top pick was
arguably, after Andre Johnston, the single best player acquisition we've
ever made and that includes the X Draft, Free Agency, and 3 college drafts. But what about the 9 players picked ahead of D-Rob ? Manning, Gallery, Fitzgerald, etc. all were pretty medicore when they played. Others didn't play
at all because of injury. I dunno, the cream of the great '04 crop isn't lookin so good right now. Maybe they were way overrated and this years class is
already being way underrated ?

Might be a little early to say that. It usually takes 2 to 3 years for LT to get accustom to the game and more for Qb's. Plus like you said several were injuried during the year (Hall and Fitzgerald).

I think people expected all of the players mentioned to be NFL ready from the get go and turn around the franchises that chose them. Which it seems like Rothlisberger was the only one who did that.

Not many rookies are going to turn around a franchise in his first season. Fitzgerald had like 8TDs right? He also caught for somewhere around 700 yards. That's not bad considering he was going to a team with a QB being a starter for the first time in his career, and already had two young talented WRs. Add to that the QB shuffle by Green when he switched between Navarre and Blake during the season. I really think it's too early to tell how talented last year's draft was, but its important to take into consideration players like Micheal Clayton who had an outstanding rookie season despite not being among the first few WRs taken. Every draft is different, and the hype surrounding it is no different. Even though the 2005 draft isn't chalked full of big names I think there are a few positions where there is alot of quality depth (ie RB, DE).

What comes to mind is the amount of teams that drafted for future, like Buffalo. They drafted Lossiman knowing he wouldn't start right away.
