    Pick #23

    Oakland Raiders
    REYNALDO HILL, CB, Florida

    Original pick: Fabian Washington, CB, Nebraska
    Here's why the science of drafting is a bunch of malarkey (not Mike): Hill goes in the seventh round to Tennessee and easily out-plays the likes of Washington, Antrel Rolle, Pacman Jones and Carlos Rogers, who all were first-round cornerbacks. For all the work that NFL teams put into draft weekend, players like Hill and Samkon Gado eventually put the lie to the accuracy of scouting grades.

    To be fair, the chances of getting a special player in the later rounds is pretty slim, and it's considerablly higher in rounds 1-3.


    It is nice to see Hill getting props.

    My thoughts too. It'd be interesting to see what % of 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc rounders eventually endup on a roster and/or end up starting.

    If the titans had to do it over again, would they take pacman #6? I think he's shown flashes of why he was selected with the 6th pick. Hopefully he'll play on that level more consistently next season.

    I have no doubt that they would make the same pick if given the chance. Pac has came a long way since the begining of the season and he's gonna get even better next season.

    The only other CB worth selecting at the #6 selection was Antrell Rolle. He had the legal problems too, he had the problems of moving him to safety, and he's been injured all season (maybe the titans saw something on the medical). So pacman again at #6 (if they still went with a corner) - yeh, Pacman.

    Nope...

    They should have kept Dyson and packaged the third we blew on Henry with our #6 and moved up and taken Ronnie Brown.

    Release Hopkins and all problems solved!

    Most 1st, 2nd, and 3rd rounders make the team I don't know the percentages but I'd guess about 99%.

    I was going to answer, Gunny, then realized you were being facetious.
