    Just to clarify - about Rookies (from the 2007 draft).

    Post it here - 4 or 5 games in.

    Me?

    Matt Ryan. I thought no way this guy from BC would be an NFL calibre QB after watching all the QB's from large schools with tough schedules falling down in the NFL lately.

    I was wrong about Chris Williams. I thought he'd be the perfect fit for the ZBS. I guess I could still end up right, considering he hasn't been able to play yet.

    I was wrong about Duane Brown. I LOVED the pick but never imagined he'd be this good this quickly. Starting game 1? Awesome.

    I thought Matt Ryan was going to be very good, but he's exceeded my expectations. He doesn't look like a rookie. But JOE FLACCO!!!??? Boy I never thought he'd do this well. I really like how this kid plays.

    And I was wrong about Sage. I thought they'd find a good enough deal on draft day to trade him.

    I was wrong about Steve Slayton, thought he was just a 3rd down back not a feature back :texflag:

    also, as of the first few games, it appears I was wrong about DeSean Jackson. I still wouldn't have drafted him even now, but he is off to a surprising start.

    I guess I wasn't wrong about Flacco's ability because I never judged it. I was wrong because I assumed he wouldn't start 1 game in 2008. Oops.

    I was wrong about Felix Jones I guess. I thought out of all the backs taken in the first he was most likely to be a bust. Also I thought Mendenhall was the best back in the draft. :embarrass

    I was right (so far) about M Ryans. I said he should be the #1 overall pick.:shades: Dont mean to toot my own horn but I got alot of slack for it.

    I was wrong about Jonathan Stewart. Then again, it's probably my bias towards DeAngelo Williams.

    I was wrong about steve slaton. Thought he'd just be a good 3rd down back, but now we've found our future!

    Oh man, I killed the Falcons. I hated the pick alot. I was wrong about Henne being the 2nd QB taken.

    You know I was wrong also to think that Joe couldnt lead the Ravens but that has to do more with the fact that I like Troy Smith

    I was wrong about DeSean Jackson. I thought he'd be a guy who would take awhile to figure the NFL out. Boy was I wrong. The guy is dangerous everytime he touches the football.

    Wrong about:

    Matt Ryan
    Steve Slaton
    Joe Flacco
    Jake Long
    Aquib Talib

    Right about:

    This section to be filled in at a later date

    If anybody listens to me about draft advice they should probably not do that anymore.

    rank Duane Brown Duane Brown post-draft to 4 games in the regular season, where would you rank him among his tackle class?

    We'll get a good look @ Jake this weekend when the Dolphins visit. Who wins the battle between Long & Mario?
