We went through a similar trend from 1975-1981. Of course we went 4 years in a row in that era without any first rounders...what happened to them I don't know, but still. This era is worse because we were in the top 10 more than ever. Jamarcus Russell and Darrius Heyward-Bey are without question the worst ever because we passed on so many other great players that easily could've make us a better team. Robert Gallery and Rolando McClain were probably the most highly touted when we drafted them so they were hard to complain about. Really the only complaint I had about Gallery was that Larry Fitzgerald should've gone #1 overall in that draft and we didn't get him when we could've used him.

Pretty sure the Browns, Bengals, Bucs and Lions could contend for this honor as well.

I think those teams have already had that honor
