What was the deal with the pick exchange between Miami and Green Bay that year? I don't remember how that went down. Certainly there were players or considerations elsewhere, right???

I don't think so. I think Green Bay wanted to trade up in the 3rd and gave up extra picks in later rounds to Miami do so. I could be wrong, but that's what I think happened.

This pick was dumb from the start if we stayed where we were Wilfork or Carey would have still been ours. Wilform would have been the better pick though.

sounds panic by LOSERS! Nobody wanted Vernon Carey and you loosers drafted another bum in Wade smith the year before! Giving up extra picks to move up to take an average tackle. We got Fanica and we didn't give up nuttin. You losers can't pick a winner to save your a/ss.
You losers do 3 things well, give away good players,give up draft picks and get nothin in return or you make stupid picks,like jason allen, Teddy bear Ginn and that peizo electric Beck. WOW! AAAAAAAAAAAAgGHT!iT'S ENOUGH TO give that Loser "WOODCROCK" TROLL-a-fin Gas!!! Him and his seester Janisdonut LMAO Where's all the Awfulin Trolls at?

The jets have way over mortgaged their future with their old free agent acquisitions. They overpaid for faneca pace and screwed up by restructuring coles contract. The coaching staff of the jets is running scared and trying to save their jobs. I know that is too much for Neanderthal jet fans to comprehend. How did I'd feel to see your big brothers the giants hoist another trophy? Oh- and perhaps if the jets didnt waste money on aging veterans they could afford their own stadium. Where do they play? GIANTS stadium. It shows they are a minor league outfit without a home. The giants own by and the jets will always be second class losing citizens. I know it hurts, but you know it is true. The giants would NEVER play home games in jest stadium. What a bunch of losers with the dumbest fan base.

And the J-E-T-S jets are slowing building a salary cap catastrophe, following in the footsteps of the generals at MSG inc. Enjoy the plunge.

Speilman was more clueless as Saban or Mueller when it came to the draft.

not only did he get snookered out of a 4th round pick. but he gives up the 3rd round pick to move down to get a 4th and 5th. LOL.

Please add to the list of draft days disasters this one from your article: they traded a 2004 2nd round pick for Wade Smith (not exactly the second coming of Anthony Munoz)

If the Vikings made such an as# out of Spielman, then why did they hire him after the Dolphins fired him? Maybe they really were going to pick him.

It's funny how some of Wanny's picks developed into good nfl players. Quite a few of his players did turn out good. It's just takes 3-5 seasons for his guys to develope! They can't even touch the field, and then they start playing good?
