Brief history of multiple 1st rd picks

Just like the rest of the draft, it's HIT or MISS. Only 4 examples I can see where a team got both picks right:

2005 San Diego Chargers Luis Castillo
2005 San Diego Chargers Shawne Merriman

2006 New York Jets D'Brickashaw Ferguson
2006 New York Jets Nick Mangold

2008 Carolina Panthers Jonathan Stewart
2008 Carolina Panthers Jeff Otah

2008 Dallas Cowboys Felix Jones
2008 Dallas Cowboys Mike Jenkins

Our picks of VD and Manny almost make the list, but not quite because neither one has reached their full potential IMO.

Let's hope the Niners strike gold twice this year.

Um, Willis and Staley?

My bad! How could I be so blind. Got to give Staley his props as a starter from day 1 along with P-Willy.

I assumed it was an oversight!!!! Hey, let's do it again this year, two starters in the first including one Pro Bowler. And another starter with the 2nd rounder. Love the draft!!!

This post makes me more excited about having multiple picks. I think that there is alot of good talent available between pick 13 to 17 that we are going to get two key contributors.

Bryan Bualuga and Earl Thomas are my choice
Wow forgot all about the Jets and their 4 first rounders damn!

Wow I forgot that the Jets had 4 1st rounders that year.

I know and none of them really worked out for them either.

. . .yet.

i was going to type in OWNED but i think you covered it.
looks like everyone picked up a great player and an average player.
