I was just re-reading Saturday's post which talked about pick #9 in the 2007 draft, Ted Ginn Jr, getting bounced over to San Francisco.
Obviously the huge news of the day today is the #9 pick in the 2006 draft, Erine Sims, moving over to Philly.
Of course we can forget all about the 2005 #9 pick; because clearly #10 was the best that year (Mike Williams, WR).
Yech. Don't ever go to the Wikipedia pages listing the drafts... you'll just want to gouge your eyes out.
Drew Stanton in the 2nd, huh? When did the next QB go? End of round three. Then one in round four.. Isaiah Stanback of Washington. After him? Mid-round 5.
Our second pick in the second round? Ikaika Alama-Francis, DE. Lamarr Woodley was there when we took Drew Stanton. Our third in the second? Gerald Alexander. Don't forget AJ Davis, CB picked at 105. (Funny thing... Chris Houston and Jonathan Wade were both picked ahead of him) Then there's the Man-Ram at 117. Johnny Baldwin LB @ 158 and nothing until Mr. Irrelevant Ramzee Robinson.
Other than Calvin, nothing good whatsoever. No matter what Mayhew does after picking @ 2 this year, it cannot possibly end up worth than 2007. Or 2006. Or 2005. ....
