    A lot of people wanted Paul Poz too, hes a fine player but its pretty clear timmons is significantly better

    In hindsight drafting the next best player to come out of the draft is probably Marshall Yanda all the way down at 86 lol

    Joe Staley went 28th. Eric Weddle went 37th. Ryan Kalil went 59th.


    The Rams' offense featuring weapons such as Marshall Faulk, Torrey Holt, and Isaac Bruce were known as "The Greatest Show on Turf"

    The Steelers' offense featuring weapons such as Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant should be known as "The Greatest Show on Grass"

    This has nothing at all to do with respective playing surfaces at the Edward Jones Dome vs. Heinz Field.

    Timmons was rated a first round pick by all nearly all of the "draft pundits" held in such high esteem on this board (except when certain posters don't agree with them)...

    He was rated a mid-first round pick...

    Directly in the middle of the first round is pick 16....

    If, in your world, 15 is "way before" 16, I can see what you're saying...

    Thankfully, Timmons has been worth it...

    how about this?
    you provide links to all the draft sites that had timmons listed before pick 20 and i'll try to find some that have him going later. whoever comes up with less, loses.
    we can make a wager on it. you in?

    At the time it was well known to be a bit of a reach...

    It'll be tough to find the draft profiles from back them but NFL Draft Scout is legit and they have him rated as Rounds: 1-2 which typically means the bottom half of the first round or the top half of the second.

    How about this link, where they redo the 2007 draft based upon how the players actually performed:

    Here, Timmons is a top 10 pick...

    I'm not sure how thats relevant to the discussion... That site was has Woodley as #6 compared to Timmons at #10. I completely forgot that Beason was in that draft.

    Based on their careers to date... would you choose Beason or Timmons?
