    So I noticed some complaints recently and got me thinking. Which of these guys that you pounded the table for ended up being giant BUSTS? Seeing all these guys options not picked had me curious so come on with it and tell us some of your biggest flops.

    Same. Injuries and fat and clumsiness in general. Remember his TD against the Chiefs? He looked like he broke his damn back lmao.

    Respect for admitting your faults. I think a lot of people were fooled by Arthur Brown, me being one of them. One I really remember is Jon Baldwin for some reason. Don't know why I thought he was going to be good, but I sure as shit was wrong.

    I recall a lot of people being high on Diggs. Another Maryland wr, when I think we were losing Torrey and needed to address the position anyway. Late round pick and I can't even remember who we took instead. Don't worry, we were able to land Nick Boyle after Diggs was selected.

    Funny story. Friend is a Giants fan. During the Odell draft he was PISSED they didn't take Donald.

    Well, they found Dexter 5 years later by way of trading Odell

    So instead of having the NFL version of Rusell Westbrook, they now have a guy who will be suspended for PEDs?

    Big misses

    Shilique Calhoun - my first (or second idk) year watching tapes. I thought he'd be a valuable first rounder with a good arsenal of moves and very good use of the hands

    Shaq Lawson - I got tricked by his one on one reps vs ND (Stanley) and other games where he looked possessing at very least a high floor. He belonged to the higher half of day 1, in my eyes

    Clive Walford - thought he'd be a much more prolific catcher due to quite refined route running giving him separation.
    Had him ahead of Maxx (that I wasn't much in love with) and had him as a tweener

    Bosa - I thought his traits wouldn't translate much, as a pass rusher. Didn't have him as a top 10 pick

    Oddighizuwa - injuries played a big part in his career. I would've wasted our late 1st rounder


    I honestly don't recall others on the top of my head. For sure there's another few.

    Lol 2 big swings and misses I had were Scooby Wright and Steve Ishmael (so far). David Sills could be my new one this year.

    I was REALLY high on Calhoun early in the process myself.

    Also Malik McDowell is one I left out. I thought he was gonna wreak havoc and his names been unheard of so far.

    I luckily had McDowell out of my list. Mere penetrator, no gap integrity. A little bit like Nkemdiche (who I also didn't like)

    I like penetrators and I think gap integrity is being overrated in this day and age where the run game is nearly nonexistsent. If you’re playing the cowboys, Seahawks, ravens, rams, or Steelers, just swap the guy for a NT, otherwise, let him fly

    Hard to call mcdowell a miss tbf anyway given that he’s only not played a snap because of a tragic RV accident before his first season and never recovered
