Where are the gamechangers? - Who's panned out since 2009.
yes - Nicks 1
no - Sintim 2 (poor LB pick)
yes/no/who knows anymore - Beatty 2
no - Barden 3
no - Beckum 3
yes - Andre Brown 4 (even though we cut him a couple of times)
no - Rhett Bomar 5
no - DeAndre Wright 6
no - Stoney Woodson
Solid first 2 picks.Petrus stepped up when needed last season, however he has not factored into anything. Adrian Tracy was always the man with all expectations.
yes - Pierre-Paul 1
yes - Linval Joseph 2
no - Chad Jones 3 (circumstances)
no - Dillard 4 (failed LB)
no - Petrus 5 (in my opinion never given proper opportunity - however did not work out)
no - Adrian Tracy 6 (same as above)
no - Matt Dodge 7 (nothing to say)
Worst draft year by far. Somewhat set the team back a year with all of the misses.
yes - Prince Amakumara 1(above average CB, lacks physicaility and size)
no - Marvin Austin 2 (Reese's worst high pick - off team)
no - Jerrel Jernigan 3 (almost equally as bad as above)
no - Brewer 4
no - Greg Jones 6
no - Tyler Sash 6
no - Jacquian Williams 6 (servicable)
In retrospect Round 1 could have been the Doug Martin pick. However once he went off the board we should have went right to serious needs at OL/LB. Reese's miss on OL this draft totally set this team up for it's currect OL failures.
no (as of now) - David Wilson 1 (lacks rb blocking skills, size - underutilized in his strengths - screens/split out wide - career also in jeopardy)
yes- Rueben Randle 2 (however will not turn out to be the Hakeem Nicks we saw from 09-11)
yes - Jayron Hosley 3 (somewhat panned out - no more than a Nickel CB)
no - Adrien Robinson 4 (bust - let's all admit it)
no - Brandon Mosley 4
no - McCants 6
no - Markus Kuhn 7
Based on expectations of rounds 1-3... Very early to tell. Just my opinions. I think Picks 1-3 will be solid for us these next few seasons.
Could be his best draft since 2009.
yes - Pugh 1
yes - Jonathan Hankins 2 (make up pick for Marvin Austin)
yes - Damontre Moore 3
no - Nassib 4 (this pick should have went OL or LB)
no - Cooper Taylor 5
no - Eric Herman 7
yes - Michael Cox 7 (no more than a return man)
