Who's your "I told you so." Draft Crush from years past?

Dez Bryant. You could see it on dislay in college he was a boss. Several teams passes I had hoped we took him but we got Davis and Iupati instead. Cant complain too much.
I also felt Mike Rumph would be a bust. An oops for me was Lawrence Phillips. Loved him was hype when we signed him.
I was pretty upset when we traded away our fourth rounder away in the 2012 also. It wasn't so much because of our move to give up the early 4th to the Colts, but more because of who they selected when they grabbed TY Hilton.

I really loved him and his game. A lot of us liked him and others had question marks on him. His game tape told of a very productive player from a smaller program (FIU). I really thought he was going to be good--more of a good returner than receiver. But I also wanted him in a Niner uniform, because I thought there was a need for receiver/returner too.

The Colts punch me in the gut every time he makes the plays I thought he was capable of in the pros.

Verbally committed to signing with us, then changed his mind.
Stupid move in hindsight on his part
Guys in my mock drafts
Mt Cody- nothing special but he is in the rotation in Balt, is he a starter?
Mr pick 6 Alterraun Verner CB- loved him! Markets top CB today
Marshall Newhouse OG/OT- GB saw tackle, I saw guard. Flopped as a tackle, FA to be and a bust for now at least
Kelton Tindal WR Newberry- 7th rd/udfa type of guy, did sign with the Vikes, didn't do anything a and was cut

Dont know what i was thinking draft crush from 2011: Christian Ponder.

Damn. You admitted that? f**k dude!!!

I see your Christian Ponder and admit that I compared Blaine Gabbert to Aaron Rodgers! Ok, it wasn't a straight talent comparison, it was more of a "he reminds me most of" kinda comment.

Point being, don't ever listen to a word I say when it comes to prospects!


Lists of hits and misses too long and too painful to scribe, but at least it wasn't the best board from a member a couple of years ago who had their best two players as:
1. Christian Ponder
2. Ricky Stanzi

Yikes!!!!
I remember when this whole web zone was crazy for Quentin Groves and Everette Brown. Thankfully at times our front office knows what not to do ;)

He started in the Titans camp and made the 53-man roster, but was released before the season opener. The Bucs then claimed him off waivers.
