    But the 90's was a you pick em of bad selections.

    Jarrod Bunch
    Dayne(2000)
    Lewis
    Derek and Dave Brown
    Weatley
    Petigout

    Hampton was really it for 1st rounders for the 90's and maybe HIliard
    I forget about Thomas Lewis all the time..lol That tells ya what kinda bust he was..lol Ya, the 90's were rough on draft picks for us, and that is why we went from 1991 to 1999 without any real threat to the SB... A couple playoff berths, but nothing to right home about...

    Pettigout certainly did not live up to his draft status, but ended up being a starting OT, so it's hard to label him a "bust" . . . . I would say that he was more of a disappointment.

    true, my point is just that we were pretty bad 1st round drafting team for the better part of a decade. In fact, I think you could argue we were the worst 1st round drafting team during the 90's. Petigout was not our worst selection, but he contributed to the stink a little.
