other than ben he is the only top 16 pick we have had in the past 10 years.
if that dont add perspective, i dont know what is.
my only top 10 LB pick regret is taking plax over urlacher.
I've always liked Timmons, but I wanted the Steelers to trade up for Patrick Willis. I would have been happy with Revis, too... but, I really wanted Willis.
As far as Plax goes, my mind wanted Urlacher and my heart wanted Pennington (Go Herd!!!)... but, alas, PITT got neither. Of course, PITT got both Troy & BB in back-to-back years; so, I really have no room to complain.
