    and chances are it might not be a "fan favorite"
    nor will it be who we think it will be

    when was the last time Floyd took someone we all "knew" he would take ?

    Aaron Rodgers? Wtf, hell no, show me anyone who thought we would draft him.

    And true some people speculated about Mike Williams because of Chow, but how many seriously thought we would draft him? I sure didn't.

    Derrick Johnson was a posibility I agree, but that means there were 3 real candidates in my book, not exactly as overwhelming as it is this year.

    Be careful what you ask for. I read some mock last year that said the Titans were going to take him and I was pretty much convinced. That was before I ever started posting my brain droppings on the internet though so that might be no count. I don't really claim to to much of anything so there's another strike. But I am someone...so technically that makes me pretty much anyone...
    In any case, I thought they would take Rodgers. I was actually surprised to see him go so late.

    there were several mocks having us take Alex Smith one week and then Aaron Rodgers the next
    there were some MW's
    Rolle's
    Ferguson's
    etc.....

    it wasn't as clear cut as you think

    Upon further review, I won a bet that we'd take a TE first in 2004. But I don't think we "all" thought that way. At least not the guy I was betting against. I guessed it was Troupe in the end for the freakishness, but I thought Watson was running pretty close. I nailed it, but not the Texans trade scenario.

    In last year's mocks, Jones became the pick the majority of the time. Rolle was second. Seemed like the need for a corner was too glaring.

    BTW, I thought we would go after Mike Williams. Upon further review, I strongly hoped we would. In that little pre-draft contest we had, pick the player and position by round (that was fun, hope we do it again, Jeff) I ended up guessing corner, but I went with Rolle.
