Peppers, easily. While I understand the team's desire to draft the "face of the orgainization", Peppers clearly would have been teh best pick.

Julius Peppers.... Period.

I don't care that Dom was going to be running the 3-4 here, Peppers was too good and would have made a major impact right away - whatever D alignment we were running!!

Julius Peppers.


We could have sucked that year and picked up Carson Palmer in the 2003 draft.

Peppers.

Carr should have gone somehwere around 15-20, and Harrington should have been a 3rd or 4th rounder...

Default Re: 2002 Nfl Draft

Are you asking who should have the pick based on what we know now or who should have been the pick at that point in time? Now it's obviously Peppers. Then...I would still say Carr should have been the pick. He was the top rated QB in the class and no one obviously thought that the 2002 draft would be as bad as it has turned out to be.

Now, then, it doesn't matter to me. It's all based upon your own opinion. I thought that we should have traded down for more picks.

Default Re: 2002 Nfl Draft

Well it depends. looking back I would have drafted Peppers. but then again I would have gotten carr more o-line help and we probably wouldn't be talking about this.

I still say we made the right pick. Gotta pick a QB as your first pick ever to be the face of the franchise and I was so happy we chose carr over harrington.

Looking over the names in the first round, the only thought that crosses my mind is "Wow what a stinker!"

The second round rocked though. Unfortunetly we dropped the ball.
