Re: It was 10 years ago…
This got me thinking about the draft.
I get a lot of flack for having a mind-meld with Ozzie Newsome. But, let's look at the last thirteen drafts. Here is who I figured that the Steelers would draft.
2001: Drew Brees (although, I expected Dan Morgan).
2002: Ed Reed
2003: Nnamdi Asomugha (as a safety)
2005: Heath Miller!!!
2006: Nick Mangold
2007: Patrick Willis
2008: Ray Rice (because, Brandon Albert launched up draft boards)
2009: Fili Moala
2010: Maurkice Pouncey!!!
2011: Michael Pouncey
2013: Matt Elam
Here's my scorecard:
4 nailed it!!!
3 correct position (Asomugha, Willis, Moala)
1 correct school (Ohio State: Holmes & Mangold)
2 not even close
