2007 draft do-over

Apr 10, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: NFL

To do over anything is a luxury few of us get in life. Matt Dodge would probably like a re-kick , Dewey a recount , and the rest of us a recharge ... something, anything to re-energize us after what we felt was a missed opportunity.

This is a tough call and I think I would've taken Joe Thomas because when I did my bleacher report article on Raider first round do overs, I took Larry Fitzgerald instead of Robert Gallery.

Still we had the chance to have both Larry Fitz and Megatron...plus the chance to have Marcus McNeill, Robert Gallery, and Joe Thomas on our OL and we passed on it for bust players like Michael Huff, Jamarcus Russell, and Gallery was decent but not what was expected of him.

There are so many things we could've done different in the first rounds of the 00s drafts.

We passed on guys like Drew Brees, Shaun Alexander, Larry Fitzgerald, Marcus McNeill...Some drafts we took a bust of a player over several who went on to be all stars. Heck we even traded a high pick for a guy that never lived up to expectations in favor of a few that could've easily improved our defense. Great players don't last forever, but they're worth having when they're good.
