I wanted all the real good players. I am a genius!

Some of these picks were gimme's that they'd be good.  Hell, pull up our past posts and let's see who everyone wanted...this should be fun...

For me it was AP instead of gaines adams.

The next year i wanted Chris Johnson instead of talib.

And this last year, josh freeman was the right move.

Could you imagine if i was the GM of the bucs?  we would have by far the best rushing attack in the league.  the 2 most explosive backs in the league on one team would be awesome.

who did you support drafting the last few years?  and how did they turn out?

2004 - I wanted and had a feeling about Michael Clayton, and back on TBBBB I did a mock draft with the Bucs picking him 4 months before the draft even started.
2005 - Cedric Benson. Yea, I know.
2006 - Santonio Holmes. I even started a thread about how pissed I was we didn't take him.
2007 - Calvin Johnson. Duh.
2008 - Devin Thomas, Philip Merling, Mike Jenkins all come to mind of who I wanted over Talib.. glad I'm wrong about that.
2009 - Josh Freeman was who I wanted and was thrilled to see him get drafted.

There is no point in mentioning names of players taken before our pick.   In 2005 I really wanted Ronnie Brown but he was gone.  I might have gone with Mike Williams.  I bought into the hype about him and he was a local kid.  I also really like Derrick Johnson and Aaron Rodgers.  In the 2nd Khalif Barnes would have been my pick but I didn't hate Ruud as a prospect.

Looking at the the 2006 draft I don't really know who I would have taken.  I didn't hate the Joseph pick like many did but I don't know if he would have been my pick.  No one really stands out.  I remember wanting Bunkley or Sims and thinking one would still be avail. but that wasn't the case.  Probably would have taken Winston Justice.  I really hated the Trueblood pick however.  Probably would have gone with Claude Wroten or Aston Youboty, or Eric Winston with that pick.

In 2007 I really wanted Joe Thomas and Calvin Johnson but they were gone.  Wasn't big on Adams.  Thought AP was a risky pick because of his injury history.  Really liked Patrick Willis who I thought was the best def. player in the draft.  I probably would have gone with him.  In hindsight he's probably is the 4th best player in this draft and definately the best on D.  Didn't mind the Sears pick but he really wasn't on my mind.  I was hoping Branch would still be there.  I probably would have gone with David Harris,  Tim Crowder,  Ryan Kalil, or Eric Wright.

In 2008, I didn't really like the Talib pick.  Would have gone with Cason over him or Jenkins.  But Philip Merling would have been my pick.  Also liked Felix Jones and Desaun Jackson.

In 2009 I was hoping for Freeman.

There were a number of players I liked in each drat that were taken higher than our pick.  I will list who I was hoping for and who I would have picked if I were the GM when we were on the clock.

2004 - wanted Jonathan Vilma, would have selected Vince Wilfork

2005 - wanted Cadillac all the way

2006 - wanted Tamba Hali, would have selected Mathias Kiwanuka

2007 - wanted CJ, would have tried to move down a couple spots and taken Amobi Okoye (I really liked that kid and didn't see the need for drafting AP)

2008 - wanted Jonathan Stewart, would have taken Mike Jenkins

2009 - wanted BJ Raji in the worst way, would have traded up for him but not a likely possibility, I would have taken Vontae Davis

Jenkins would have been a bad pick but we would have a better pass rush if my picks were made and I wouldn't mind having that right now!

2004 Wilfork or Steve Jackson over Clayton
2005 Wanted Caddy
2006 Wanted Marcus McNeil over Davin
2007 Wanted Adams
2008 Didn't like anyone at the spot because didn't like DB in R1 for our old defense

All posts are opinions in case you are too stupid to figure that out on your own without me saying it over and over.

2004 - wanted Vilma, would have taken Wilfork. Maybe my worst call of all-time though was arguing that dropping down and taking Rashaun Woods would have been better than grabbing Clayton.

2005 - Wanted Caddy, also loved Ware (I'm a defensive-type)

2006 - DeMeco Ryans. Also preferred McNeil to Joseph.

2007 - Really wanted Joe Thomas, but Adams since Thomas wasn't available.  At the time I also advocated trying to trade up for CJ or JT and drafting a DE like Spencer or Lamarr Woodley (now both 3-4 OLBs)

2008 - Was pretty ambivalent (Mendenhall maybe?) but was ok with corner. Didn't know much about Talib because I thought he'd be gone. Didn't have a lot of belief in Chris Johnson or the WR from Houston, and was strongly against Devin Thomas.

2009 - big-time Raji fan, but as we got to our pick I wanted either Oher or Freeman, or a drop down for Harvin. I did not want to see Ayers on this team.

I really like DeMarco Ryans as well and thought he was a great fit for Monte's D but didn't think he was value in the first.  He's ended up being a pretty solid player.

The scary thing is even though we are all just a bunch of amatuers our drafts would have been better than Allen/Gruden.
