I was one of those. I wasn't upset with the Willis pick, I just would've rather had Carriker.

Oh well, hindsight is 20/20. I also thought Darko Milicic would have a better career than Lebron James lol


you're a better man than me...i would have taken that to my grave.

agreed

Yep. Misused is probably an understatement.
Nice trade for Washington, i think he can be solid as a 3-4 DE

LMAO!
I'm suprised Maddog hasn't said I told you so. If memory serves and at my age it quite often doesn't, I believe he said that Carriker wasn't best suited for DT. I know I wanted Carriker until I saw some of Willis's high lites ,then I was on the fence.
I was never high on him. My first choice that draft was Landry but I knew he'd be gone. Well more like 1a and Willis was 1b.
I think Carriker is definitely a DE whether in a 4-3 or 3-4.
at the Rams. They could have drafted one of the other top 5 ranked players and selected Clausen in the 2nd round.

I bet they feel stupid for having drafted a QB at #1 and now will pass up the 2nd best QB in the draft.

That's like if we drafted Alex Smith and then Rogers was available in the 2nd.

The funny thing about this is that Darko played overseas and NOBODY here in the US watched him play. So the fact that you thought some international player you've never seen was better than Lebron is just nuts.
He's just not good like i said when he got drafted he plays with no leverage for his height and doesn't use his hands well at all. things that you must have as a d lineman.
