List for me, from these 32 picks in the first 3 rounds since 2006, the ones you think were GREAT picks at their spot in the draft?
Here they are.
babe I put my response next to each name....
Thomas, David thomas? I didn't think we needed him at that spot, although he was the captain of the national championship team.
Jackson, was a great pick at that spot and we drafted for necessity. Most analyst's agreed.
Maroney, same as Jackson, if we didn't take him the colts were a few picks later great pick at a position of need. Dungy spoke of this.
Meriweather i liked getting the UM player where we did, needed some attitude, unfortunately he had no brains.
Mayo, great pick, top 5 ILB in the league.
, Wheatley was a bust, still in the league.
Crable couldnt stay healthy, a reach too
O'Connel I didn't like that pick I think 3rd rounder no? Bad pick imo
Chung solid pick drafting a position of need from a good school.
Brace, developmental player....who never got developed or couldn't stay healthy.
Butler, great pick had 3 interceptions in 1 game last week but 1 called back on a penalty.Didnt get coached up or had some kind of attitude/ defiency. Solid corner for colts.
Vollmer, great pick, starting RT on a great yearly top 5 offensive line.
Tate solid player still a contributor but we know how wr's develop in our system...not at all.
McKenzie injury case.
McCourty, great pick, 7 picks his 1st year, but a better safety.
Gronk great pick, caught more tds in his 1st 3 years then any player in NFL history.
Spikes, good pick, good run stuffer.
Price i thought he was a reach at the time.
Solder great pick, way better then anthony costanzo we passed up, who I thought we should have picked.
Dowling, injury gamble that didnt pay off.
Vereen, great pick.
Ridley, greay pick
Mallet great pick and a steal
Jones, great pick
Hightower, great pick
Wilson, tavon? Bust and reach
Bequette,i liked this pick even though it was considered a reach but apparently he wasnt nfl ready.
Collins, great pick brings much needed athleticism
Dobson, great pick, position of need
Ryan good pick
and Harmon solid pick, like the big frame, need a hitter back there!
Good thread babe!
