I don't consider Emmanuel Sanders and Jason Worilds "misses".

The jury is still out on Worilds.

I would have LOVED to have Graham or Bowman... honestly we have had a lot of misses, but so have a lot of other teams. We do well in the 1st round, as long as Hood and Heyward pan out and continue to improve, overall, I am happy with our team.

I admit and I made a thread a while bac about this that got some great opinions, sometimes Colbert really pisses me off. Like the time he picked Lawrence Timmons and not Paul Pozluszny....what was he thinking...or rather....what was I thinking?

I do, at times question his judgement but there is a reason the Steelers didnt hire me to do his job. Actually there are two reasons. The lesser of the two is because I didnt apply for it lol.

He knows they have to do a better job deeper in the draft. I have a really good feeling about this yer. Idk why I just do, ever since the regular season ended Ive thought this year, not making the playoffs, not having to play with a depleted roster any longer, being at pick 17, was a blessing in disguise.

What they need to do is stop wasting 2-4 round picks on OLB ... Every year seems like they're wasting 2 picks a draft on OLB ...

And actually give players a chance ... There is no reason Urbick still isn't on the roster...

Also somebody like Limas Sweed you can't blame him for that, he wasn't supposed to be there and I believe everyone thought he was going to be good

You can play this game with any team. People were rightfully happy with the Mendenhall pick in round 1, as they should have been. He was a great college back, just didn't produce in the pros like we hoped.

Anyway, they weren't going to take Ray after Rashard in the first, so you may want to call out Mendenhall as the miss in this situation.

Running backs are a crap shoot in the first round. For every Adrian Peterson, there are your Kijana Carters and Rashaan Salaams.

Here are the last ten years of first round running backs.

Willis McGahee, Larry Johnson, Steven Jackson, Chris Perry, Kevin Jones, Ronnie Brown, Ced Benson, Cadillac Williams, Reggie Bush, Laurence Maroney, Deangelo Williams, Joseph Addai, Adrian Peterson, Marshawn Lynch, Darren McFadden, Jonathan Stewart, Felix Jones, Rashard Mendenhall, Chris Johnson, Knowshon Moreno, Donald Brown, Beanie Wells, CJ Spiller, Ryan Mathews, Jahvid Best, Mark Ingram, Trent Richardson, Doug Martin, David Wilson

I'm guessing there's a lot of draft regret going around.

It's easy to play captain hindsight years after these drafts are already over, but many of those picks were, at the time, considered good picks.

I wouldnt be as concerned with those misses as every team has them. What we dont have is round 5-7 gems. Lots of teams have those. we dont.

Hindsight is 20/20. 31 other teams missed on those guys, too. Also, Emmanuel Sanders is a pretty nice consolation prize.
