Here are the last ten 1st rounders: Perry (nothing so far); Sherrod (nothing so far); Bryan Bulaga (bust); Matthews (one dimensional); Justin Harrell (bust); Hawk (one dimensional/over rated out of college/liability in the pass game/slow); Rodgers (good, but sat on the bench too long for an overall productive career, getting old quick); Ahmad Carroll (bust); Nick Barnett (good/should have played strong safety); Javon Walker (bust).

Ok ill bite..
Ahmad Carroll was a Mike Sherman Draft pick.
Nick Barnett was a very good LB until injuries,then he was released.Javon Walker played very well in GB.
Mathews ( 1 dimensional?) thats a joke right?
Bulaga a bust? far from it.
Hawk,underachieved for a 4-6 overal pick for sure,if he was a late 1st rounder,it would have been considered a pretty good pick
Bottom line Ted Thompson and Co. basically drafted a SB championship team and i see Minnesota grabbing a few of GB castoffs or former players so apparently the Viking organization feels GB does a pretty good job at it.

Not to mention the joke comment about Rodgers.He has been top notch the past few years and still has a good 4 years ahead of him in his prime before a drop off starts.
Justin Harrell yes,he couldnt stay healthy,the games he played he did well but staying healthy is the game and he just couldnt do it.Sherrod,you hit it,nothing yet,,if he gets healthy we will see.if he retires.
can you call him a bust? yes and no..
Bust is seen as a person who sucked..Sherrod doesnt suck,he got leg whipped and broke 2 bones.A waste of a 1st round pick? yea, but....
Brian Bosworth was a bust..Tony Manderich was a bust..many 1st rounders have been a bust,,im not sure a guy who lost because of injury should be labeled as a bust but thats just my personal opinion

eric, there is no point discussing anything with someone that can say Clay Mathews is one dimensional or that Rodgers can't be productive. Obviously such comments are jealousy induced stupidity.
