    OK, Mario is the best player from the 1st round of the '06 draft, because I'm a homer. Deal with it.

    Who is the second best? Bush? No. VY? Definitely not. Cutler? Maybe. 2006 draft looks pretty good overall so far.

    Mario Williams
    Reggie Bush
    Vince Young
    D'Brickashaw Ferguson
    A.J. Hawk
    Vernon Davis
    Michael Huff
    Donte Whitner
    Ernie Sims
    Matt Leinart
    Jay Cutler
    Haloti Ngata
    Kamerion Wimbley
    Brodrick Bunkley
    Tye Hill
    Jason Allen
    Chad Greenway
    Bobby Carpenter
    Antonio Cromartie
    Tamba Hali
    Laurence Maroney
    Manny Lawson
    Davin Joseph
    Johnathan Joseph
    Santonio Holmes
    John McCargo
    DeAngelo Williams
    Marcedes Lewis
    Nick Mangold
    Joseph Addai
    Kelly Jennings
    Mathias Kiwanuka

    PS - Also because I'm a homer, Ryans is the best player from the draft overall, but I am only including Round 1 :)

    I don't know, but it should've been DeMeco Ryans. :whip:

    I'd say either Antonio Cromartie or AJ Hawk.

    That would have meant someone else took him on Round One. Yikes.

    Ryans should've have gone in Rd 1, but I think we can all agree that we are thankful that he didn't.

    What if we would have went another direction and Mario somehow ended up with the Titans

    :yikes:

    Cutler or Hawk. I can't really choose. And you CAN'T MAKE ME!

    I think, because of the gravity of the position, I might go with Cutler, but the ones I mention are definitely right there as well. I also think that, before it's all said and done, a few other guys will be thought of as very good draft picks (Greenway, Lawson, Ferguson, Mangold, Whitner, and maybe Huff if he gets out of OAK).

    Mario next to Haynesworth would have sucked for us, especially with KVB on the other side.

    I'm going to say Joseph Addai.

    As a rookie he came in and performed very well in a starting role despite having big shoes to fill.

    Very consistent since day one.

    I thought about Addai too, but he sure seems to get dinged up alot lately. :thinking:

    Plus, I'll always give the nod to a defensive front seven player. :cool:

    Jay Cutler. He looks like the second coming of Elway, since offseason diagnoisis of type 1 diabetes. Great role model for eveyone afflicted, know someone or have type 2 diabetes, that you can still do everything a normal person can & in his case better :cool:
