    From memory, Indianpolis has been pretty good. Peyton Manning, Dwight Freeney, Reggie Wayne, Dallas Clark, Joseph Addai, Edgerrin James, Marvin Harrison, Marlin Jackson, Marshall Faulk, Tarik Glenn, Corny Bennett.....and while they didn't keep him, the Colts did draft John Elway in the first round, remember?

          Ravens don't have very many 1st Round busts...but Travis Taylor & Kyle Boller are no doubt the worst first round picks ever, with Taylor being first and Boller coming in at second.

          Baltimore: 7-4

            not trying to rub it in but remember the bills traded their 1998 draft pick for Rob Johnson, ultimately giving the Jaguars Fred Taylor...greatest trade in the history of the draft!

                  Chris Berman's quote is priceless; "as a jets season ticket holder, I'm gonna Boo." Sorry jets fans, this is really hard to watch.
                  things have looked better as of lately, lets just forget about those bad days and hope that the current trend continues. The new management appears to have a clue, something that can't be said about back then

                    Dallas 1st history is not bad when they actually have a 1st rounder.

                    Emmitt Smith
                    Russell Maryland
                    Alvin Harper
                    Greg Ellis
                    Ebenezer Ekuban
                    Roy Williams
                    Terrence Newman
                    DeMarcus Ware
                    Marcus Spears
                    Bobby Carpenter
                    Anthony Spencer.

                    The ones I was unsure of are David LaFluer, Shante Carver, Kevin Smith, and Robert Jones.

                    I have to admit Dallas has done a great job when they have had a 1st Rounder.

                      pats was pretty mixed pre-belichick
                      1999 - damien woody (had some great seasons, but also struggles with injuries)
                      1999 - andy katzenmoyer (never showed much and had career ending injury)
                      1998 - robert edwards (very promising, then career ending injury)
                      1998 - tebucky jones (played on some super bowl teams, highly inconsistent)
                      1997 - chris canty (was never really anything special)
                      1996 - terry glenn (amazing rookie season, started flaking out, has had solid career since leaving NE)
                      1995 - ty law (still one of my all time fav pats, wish he could have played whole career here)
                      1994 - willie mcginest (see ty law description)
                      1993 - drew bledsoe (mixed bag, had success, then didn't, maybe would have been great if he could just get rid of the ball)
                      1992 - eugene chung (fairly sure he was a bust)

                      under parcells, we drafted 2 great players, and 2 very solid players that really never justified their picks. after parcells left, drafting wasn't very good. i'm not saying the pats have drafted the worst by any means, but you can see after all those busts how belichick wound up getting hired.
                      Let's get it done Spaziani.

                      Belichick might be an a-hole... but I'd rather have an a-hole that wins than one that doesn't.

                          Eugene Chung was the torch bearer for Asian-American NFL players until Dat Nguyen came along.

                            Kevin Smith was actually a very good CB for us during the early 90's. Starting during that 92-93 SB run. So I would say he was on the plus side when it came to first rounders. Robert Jones was also a a nice player from what I remember. Really fit that small but athletic LB that JJ liked. Started at MLB when Ken Norton left I believe, it was either him or Dixon Edwards.

                              Dallas is just as bad as most of these other teams:

                              1994 Shante Carver DE Best season was 6 sacks in 97.
                              1995 NO PICK
                              1996 NO PICK
                              1997 Dave LaFleur TE Best year was 1999 with over 300 receiving and 7 TDs. Out of the league 2 seasons later.
                              1998 Greg Ellis DE Isn't Randy Moss.
                              1999 Ebenezer Ekuban DE Worthless.
                              2000 NO PICK
                              2001 NO PICK
                              2002 Roy Williams S Instant impact but career has definitely trailed off. For his draft position, bust label may be appropriate.
                              2003 Terence Newman CB First good 1st rounder for Dallas in OVER A DECADE.
                              2004 NO PICK (Are you sensing a trend?)
                              2005 Demarcus Ware OLB / Marcus Spears DE I'd say 50/50 is still pretty good for a first round.
                              2006 Bobby Carpenter OLB It's early, but not looking good for Carp.
                              2007 Anthony Spencer OLB Early, but has shown flashes.

                              It's a wonder we're competitive at all really.

                                Oaklands drafts havent been anything special but they arent the worst.

                                07 JaMarcus Russell to early to tell.

                                06 Micheal Huff has done an excellent job covering great TEs.

                                05 Fabian Washington hasnt been great.Had a good year in 06 but bad year in 07.

                                04 Robert Gallery coaching has really hurt him.but he never was the LT we hoped for him to be.makes a good G though.

                                03 Nnamdi Asomugha great pick.easily one of the top 3 corners in the league.
                                Tyler Brayton.Never did anything except knee Jeremy Stevens in the groin.which unsuprisingly didnt hurt Stevens at all.

                                02 Phillip Buchannon didnt do much and was traded.
                                Napoleon Harris was solid but nothing special.traded.

                                01 Derrick Gibson absolutely abismal pick.watching him was very,very painful.

                                00 Seabass we really didnt need to use a 1st rounder on this guy.Hes terribly inconsistent.but hes still on the team oddly enough.
