    Consider this: Witten is a 3rd rd pick that already is a multiple Pro Bowler and one of the top 5 TE's in the game.
    Canty is a 4th rd pick that is a starter and despite the lack of respect 3-4 DE's get looks to be a fixture for years.
    Watkins is a 5th rd pick and looks like a steal.
    Petitti is a 6th rd pick and how many of them start at a critical spot like RT?
    And while the jury is still out McQuistan is a 7th rd pick that looks like a keeper.
    Yes we busted on Rogers and looks like we may be disapointed in Peterman.
    But just how many teams get starters later than the 4th rd? How many get gems like Watkins in the 5th? Every First RD pick we have gotten under BP is starting right now.
    Actually the only place that we seem to have problems is the 2nd rd. Except for JJ and what looks like a good pick in Fasano the 2nd seems to be a bit of a problem.

    Maybe. But for a 5th RD pick I think we already can say that we got more then we paid for. How often can it be said that a 5th could very well be starting by the end of his rookie year?

    They were talking on the Ticket earlier today. Question of the day. How many players are on the roster that are pre-BP?

    there are only 4, can you name them?

    82 currently on roster, 78 are BP post BP

    RW, Ellis, Flozell, and Keith Davis would be my guess.

    Greg Ellis, Flozell Adams, Roy Wiliams, Al Singleton

    Gurode and Roy were drafted the same year, I think- the one before BP came in.

    actually, wasn't gurode on theteam prior to BP. I thought BP drafted Al johnson in hisfirst year. That would make 5 unless KD was after BP.

    And don't forget about Crayton and Reeves, our starting 3rd WR and 4th (maybe 3rd soon) CB.

    If my boy McQuistan works out, we could have more 7th round contributors from the last few years than we had first day contributors over about a five-year period in the early 2000s. :eek:

    Ellis was first round pick in 98 & Adams was the 2nd round pick that year; Roy Williams drafted first round in 2002 & Andre Gurode drafted in 2nd round same year. Remainder of the players all came after Parcells got here.

    That's wrong, Keith Davis was on the 2002 roster, he played a few games that year. He was release after he got shot the first time. So, it would be Roy, Davis, Adams, Ellis and Guorde

    Funny, you could change this:


    to this:



    And well, you know where I'm going with this.

    Funny how BP is perfect EXCEPT when it comes to Julius Jones. BP has almost completely ruined Julius Jones.

    How about giving the true credit? Ireland. The two drafts Ireland has supervised has been superb in my opinion. The one Rogers/Peterman draft that Bill supervised wasn't so hot in my opinion.

    I will never forget BJ Tucker and Justin Bates in the later rounds....BP's first draft with us. That was pretty embarrassing IMO.

    The last two drafts have been great.

    Here's a thought....
    I think that Watkins has a good chance of being a better S than Whitner
    Bullocks, and Ko Simpson. I thought that on draft day. No idea why Watkins slipped so far, or why Whitner went top 10....befuddling.

    Burnett is showing signs of life so far and he was a second rounder.
