Default 2005 Draft: Bust????

http://www.nfl.com/draft/history/years/2005

From David Pollack and Pacman Jones to Troy Williamson and Mike Williams.

This is their make or break season. It really seems like a pile of mediocrity. The top 5 picks (Alex Smtith, Ronnie Brown, Braylon Edwards, Cedric Benson, and Carnell Williams) have been pretty mediocre and none of them look like they are going to be much more then "pretty good"

Picks 11-13 seem to be the only very good picks in the first round.... (Demarcus Ware, Shawn Merriman, and jamal Brown)


This could be one of the rare drafts when under 3 players are truly memorable.

It was a very weak draft. No surprise that it was followed by an absolutely super one.

Luis Castillo has been very good. He has become one of the best 3-4 ends in the game. I think Mark Clayton is going to become a big time player as well.

I don't think we can tell at all yet. There are plenty of guys from the 1st round that can have big years this year. After the season we can make some better judgements.

The Chargers had a terrific first round that year...

But I woudn't say none of those guys will only be "pretty good"...Benson is just entering his first year as a starter, give Caddy time, Alex Smith will only be a third year QB, etc. etc....I know you said next year will be the determining year so that would include giving these guys a shot but...I'd wait it out before saying it was a horrible draft class.

As some have mentioned, I wouldn't place Alex Smith in a box yet. He had a really terrible rookie season, but he showed a lot of improvement last season. As long as he continues to build on that, I think he has potential.

can't really blame him for that either, he had nothing to throw at his rookie year. I do blame him foor looking like he's taking a dump when he he gets his picture taken.

Thomas Davis is a ******* stud, he kicked ass last year and will be a pro bowler soon.

Scouts compared him to Ray Lewis coming out, he's starting to play up to his potential.

Odell Thurman can be thrown in there too- But its a good draft, with gems like Lofa, Merriman is doing Def. Player of the year things, Ware is a man beast. Edwards, Clayton and Brown are all improving and look to be starters for a while. Frank Gore maybe? You get the picture.

The draft wasn't very good at the time, but it has produced decently. In the first round I think only two players can be called busts at this point, Mike Williams and Travis Johnson. There are more guys that could be but it's only been two years. There were some very good players not in the first round as well.

Mike Patterson and Reggie Brown have already earned new contracts from the Eagles for their play on the field. Patterson, Brown, Considine, and Todd Heremens are starters for the Eagles, and Matt McCoy could still make a significant impact.

The 2005 draft may be a little short on starpower, but there are a lot of solid players out there. In all fairness, no one expected much of anything from the draft at all, so anything at all is more than what was generally anticipated.

Alex Smith looked pretty good behind a pretty bad line last year. He can still be a good one.

It wasnt a highly rated draft either and a few guys have certainly done better than expected.

Pollack broke his neck, that doesn't make him a bust.

Also, anyone who says Braylon is a bust is crazy, he had Staph + torn ACL in year one and a quarterback that got sacked a ton and had no time to get him the ball and he still managed to lead the team in yards.
