Where has AJ’s Genius Gone?


2004 – A+

1 4(4) Philip Rivers QB NC State – No explanation Needed.

2 3(35) Igor Olshanksy* DT Oregon – Starts for Dallas now.

3 2(65) Nate Kaeding PK Iowa – 2nd Most Accurate Kicker in the NFL, but not cannot hit game deciding field goals.

3 3(66) Nick Hardwick C Purdue – Awesome, but has missed 13 games since 2005 and will miss at least 5 more.

4 2(98) Shaun Phillips DE Purdue – Serviceable, but is ineffective without Merriman on the other side.

5 1(133) Dave Ball DE UCLA – Who?  Exactly!  He is a Titan now.

5 22(154) Michael Turner RB Northern Illinois – Led the league in rushing TD’s last year.

6 4(169) Ryan Krause WR Nebraska-Omaha – Who?

7 3(204) Ryon Bingham DT Nebraska – Injured and out for the year.

7 8(209) Shane Olivea OT Ohio St. – New York Giants roster, but not starting.

7 53(254) Carlos Joseph OT Miami (FL) – Who?

 

2005 – A

1 12(12) Shawne Merriman DE Maryland – A force to be reckoned with until knee injury… now is a liability.

7 28(242) Scott Mruczkowski C Bowling Grn – Serviceable Back-Up

 

2006 – C+

1 19(19) Antonio Cromartie CB Florida State – One good year and has been a bust since then.  7 kids in 5 States!

2 18(50) Marcus McNeill T Auburn – AWESOME!

3 17(81) Charlie Whitehurst QB Clemson – Will NEVER play a down in SD!

5 18(151) Tim Dobbins ILB Iowa State – Decent if he gets playing time.

6 18(187) Jeromey Clary T Kansas State – Consistently named the weakness of our O-Line.

6 19(188) Kurt Smith K Virginia – Why on earth would we draft this guy with Kaeding?

7 17(225) Chase Page DT North Carolina – Who?

7 19(227) Jimmy Martin OT Virginia Tech – Who?

 

2007 – C

1 30 (30) Craig Davis WR LSU – Can you say BUST?

3* 32 (96) Anthony Waters ILB Clemson – Who?

4 30 (129) Scott Chandler TE Iowa – Who?

5* 35 (172) Legedu Naanee WR Boise State – Better than BUSTer Davis

7 30 (240) Brandon Siler ILB Florida – Serviceable when he plays!

 

2008 – D-

1 27 (27)  Antoine Cason CB Arizona – Continually gives up big plays and consistently looks lost like Cromartie!

3 6 (69)  Jacob Hester FB LSU – Wasted pick because he just doesn’t contribute to this team.  What’s worse is that we gave up a 2nd round pick in 2009  to use a 3rd pick on him in 2008!

5* 31 (166)  Marcus Thomas RB UTEP – Who?

6 26 (192)  DeJuan Tribble CB Boston College – Who?

7 27 (234)  Corey Clark G Texas A&M – Who?

4 13 (113) Vaughn Martin DT Western Ontario – Canadian mammoth, but work in progress who will not contribute much this year.

4 33 (133)* Tyronne Green G Auburn – On the roster but does not contribute.

4 34 (134)* Gartrell Johnson RB Colorado State – Now a NY Giant

5 12 (148) Brandon Hughes CB Oregon State – It seems like this guy should start over Cason and Cromartie!

6 16 (189) Kevin Ellison S USC – Definitely needs to start over Clinton Hart

7 15 (224) Demetrius Byrd WR LSU – Time will tell as he is PUP because of a car accident before the draft.
