    Before we crucify the Iggy draft pick...

    ....look at who was still out there at the same point in the draft.

    Not overwhelming me with players any better than him. As a matter of fact, a lot of the dudes taken after are already out of football.

    Shady McCoy, Phil Loadholt, not much more than that. So, in hindsight, he wasn't such a bad pick considering who else was still available.

    I would gladly take LeSean McCoy over Ziggy...

    Personally, I was a huge Alex Mack guy that year. It killed me when Cleveland traded down 14 times in the first round and took him. I also thought Jarron Gilbert was a guy with some intriguing potential (so that shows what I know).

    How in the heck did I not know that was Animal's son? I used to love the Road Warriors as a kid.

    Agreed. Even Laurinaitis, in a post draft interview, thought he was going to be a Steeler when he fell to the end of the first round.

    I remember thinking eric wood was going to be a kind of sneaky pick.

    buffalo may have surprised us there as he was generally rated late 1st-mid 2nd.

    that was a weak draft in that area, no doubt.
