For me it was Chris Simms. I hate UT and really couldn't stand him personally. 2 more that I didn't like at the time where Michael Clayton and Booger McFarland mainly because I wanted Daunte Cullpepper soo bad.

Mike Clayton first, Carnell Williams second

-------------------------------------------------------
   

 I thought Lovie said he wanted quickness & speed, even at the QB position?

Easy. Myron Lewis. However, I never wished to turn in so called 'flag', I just wondered WTF Dominik was doing.

Do you remember who you wanted over Cadillac? I was happy with the Caddy pick, I just didn't want that Rogers guy we were kinda rumored to take. FACEPALM on my part for that one...

None. But there havent been to many picks i was completly against. Not since the gru allen years. I dont think dom has been perfect, but I havent had to many qualms with the guys hes picked. How theyve turned out is another story though. I think the drafting of this franchise hasnt been too good over the last decade. Hence why this team went from one of the oldest to one of the youngest over that time. Both extremes rarely result in good results and theres no way to build that without solid drafting and smart fa.

So far doms classes have shown a little more promise each year but his fa.has left a lot to be desired save for Nicks and Jackson.

Freeman. I knew nothing about him and seriously thought one of our scrubs would develop a la Romo.

I hated the Josh Freeman pick.  I feel much better about the pick now, but I competely hated the pick at the time.  Wasn't crazy about the Clayton pick, or the Gaines Adams pick. The 2 first round picks of 96 were disapointing too.  I really wanted to get Ray Lewis, and someone else - a WR I think, but can't be sure who.
Freeman would have to be the pick I hatted the most- at the time.

*** Edit- the Freeman pick may have been equaled by my hate of the Dilfer pick.  It was not so much that I hated Dilfer, but I new it meant the end of Erickson, who I really believed was going  to be a winning QB.  I wanted to use the pick to strengthen the team in another area.

The worst I felt about a pick after seeing their first practice as a Buc was hands down Eric Curry.  He just screamed lazy bum., and had to be pried away from the water cart.

Talib. Hands down. I went nuclear on this BB. It was a classic meltdown. I hate being right.

Percy Harvin or the 5-6th ranked qb in a college conference... and we took the 5-6 ranked qb... made me physically ill. 

Dodged a bullet there, though, if Harvin was the other option!

I generally don't get upset about picks because I don't do anywhere near the research these guys do and I can pretty quickly be convinced of a player's awesomeness. I was disappointed in the selection of Clayborn, but he won me over with an interview he did right after being drafted.

There\'s a very real chance the Bucs waive [Revis] before next season. At the very least, it will be a discussion worth having.

Gaines Adams. I remember he had like a lightning bolt shaved in the side of his head on draft day.  I didn't want him and that just put it over the top.

I didn't particularly like the first few Gruden drafts. In 2004, I thought Stephen Jackson was the sure pick. In 2005 I didn't like picking a RB so high, and I wanted Derrick Johnson. In 2006 I didn't like picking a guard so high, I thought that Santonio Holmes would be a Buc, or Jimmy Smith I think it was, but I didn't hate the Joseph pick.  In 2007, I didn't hate the Gaines Adams pick because I thought that he was the best player left, but it was a big disappointment from expecting Calvin Johnson. Then in 2008 I actually liked the Talib pick, but I think my first choice was Limas Sweed or Brian Brohm. I didn't like the idea that I hadn't heard of Myron Lewis before the 2010 draft, but reading up on him initially made me feel good that he was a team leader, had good production from all phases from the game, and didn't really have any shortcomings.
