I, like almost every football fan felt that Peterson would be the better of the two backs. Now, it's pretty obvious that he is considering he's the best in all of football. I thought Patrick Willis had all the tools to be a great player. And he is.

2006 NFL Draft
What I wanted - Haloti Ngata, Brodrick Bunkley
What I got - Donte Whitner
Many Bills fans were split on who they wanted - Bunkley, Ngata, and Winston Justice.
I was a huge Ngata fan. Our run defense sucked and I wanted to fix it. But instead we have Donte 'Pile Jumper' Whitner.
2nd Round -
When I saw we traded up, I though it was going to be for...
Winston Justice, or Nick Mangold
What I got - John McCargo :(
I feel the exact same way on all of these. Maybe a little less hate on Whitner, though.
Poz was the best pick ever. Considering Peterson and Willis were gone by 12, Lynch-Poz was as good as it got.
That pick HAD to be Winston Justice. It just had to be. Not that it matters now.
I'll try the other years I remember.
Wanted - Roethlisberger. Lee Evans or Michael Jenkins since I knew he wouldn't be there.
Got - Leevans. <3.
Wanted - Not this pick. I was hoping for Schaub or Losman later on; mostly Schaub :(
Got - JP. Oh, JP.
The fact that Schaub was still there at 74 still kills me.
Wanted - Joey Thomas or Chris Cooley. Really hitting on both ends of the scale, there.
Wanted - a first round pick
Got - Worst draft ever
Wanted - Michael Oher, Brian Orakpo
Got - Aaron Maybin
Wanted - James Laurinaitis, Eben Britton, Eric Wood
Got - Eric Wood
Wanted - William Beatty
Got - Jairus Byrd. Awesome.
Wanted - Didn't know we traded for this pick until hours later. Would've wanted Beatty.
Got - Andy Levitre
Wanted - Shawn Nelson
Got - Shawn Nelson
