Insider so I can't post the whole thing, but he has the top 5 going:

1. San Francisco 49ers: Aaron Rodgers, QB
2. Miami Dolphins: DeMarcus Ware, LB
3. Cleveland Browns: Roddy White, WR
4. Chicago Bears: Trent Cole, DE
5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Justin Tuck, DE


Other interesting notes were Caddy dropping out altogether, but Ruud moving up to #26 overall

Gruden began the morning by telling Rodgers the meeting was a get- acquainted session to see if there was a level of compatibility, and that "we wouldn't be here if we weren't players in this."

FRG is the most logical poster on this board.  You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.

All around that draft was pretty weak

IIRC wasn't Rodgers looked upon as the guy most likely to be #1 prior to that draft?

Happy and Peppy and Bursting with love.

It was a bit light on top end superstar players, but there were good-to-very good players available in the middle rounds at a much higher rate than most other draft classes.

I have no idea why this matters at all.
What might have been wasn't.
It just shows how many "experts" guessed wrong and I think we all
know by now how "experts" guessing wrong is far more commonplace than
their guessing right.

We are all here because we are NOT all there.....
As always, GO BUCS!!!

definately a top 5 pick at one point.  Nobody thought he'd fall as far as he did.  The curse of Jeff Tedford QBs I guess.  I wanted him.

We'd take Justin Tuck over Frank Gore?  I don't know about that.

Bad year to be picking 5th in the draft.

it's probably never a good idea to take the 3rd RB in the draft class when you are picking at #5

Considering that 3rd RB in the draft class was rookie of the year and the key to the Bucs making the playoffs in 2005, I don't think I agree with that.    I see nothing wrong with the choice of Caddy that year.

when you pick top 5 LT, DT, DE, and QB are pretty much the only positions to consider IMO.  while none of those 3 RBs can be considered true busts, they haven't lived up to their draft status by a long shot either.  And now 6 years down the road and they are all pretty much done.

So you wouldn't have taken Adrian Peterson at #5 the year he came out?

Adrian Peterson wasn't the third running back in his class.

1996 the Bucs took Regan Upshaw with their first pick.   They could have taken the 3rd rated Running back in that draft rather than Upshaw.   That back was Eddie George.   I don't think you would find many people who think Regan Upshaw was a better pro than Eddie George.
