    I was definitely off on Leinart and Michael Floyd.

    I’m really not a huge fan of this because there are often extenuating circumstances that preclude our ability to project a player’s career. For example, too many people listed Wadsworth when his career was destroyed by knee injuries. Same could be said about Cooper

    You also missed out on a lot of gut wrenching pain and disappointment. :)

    Looks like he had to live through the 2018 season! Isn’t that enough?

    - Saw Ryan Williams make a move in the Red & White game and was convinced we had a franchise RB

    - Thought Andre Ellington was the next Jamal Charles

    - Thought Beanie Wells was the next Deuce McAllister

    - Thought the David Johnson extension was a good move

    - Don’t think we should re-sign Kenyon Drake

    So based on my history of RB takes we should absolutely re-sigh Drake!

    If you were a fan long enough and also thought Leeland McElroy was a All Pro... then I am backing up the Brinks truck for Drake :raccoon:

    Actually Swann had deteriorated badly by 1998 when Wadsworth, theoretically to replace Swann. Swann started only 5 games in ‘98 & none in ‘99. By 2000 he was in Carolina. Rashod Swinger & Jerry Drake were the starters for most of ‘99. Seems like Smith was hurt quite a bit of ‘99

    So the use of 'generally' means you do have some draft picks which you are exited about and think to yourself we just drafted a winner, and you had a strong compulsion to list some of those guys you were wrong on but pride held you back... come on, just between your ASFN family, give us one guy that really left you disgruntle just a bit lol

    I honestly can't think of anyone I was hot on pre draft that we have ever drafted!

    There are some I didn't like that we took. Wasn't a Hump fan due to injuries. Or a Diche fan. Or a Reddick fan. Or an Isabella fan.

    Runs to check... Badger. I liked Badger pre draft. And I thought Troy Niklas would be good.

    Of course I don't have an opinion on every player :)
