Joel Buchsbaum did this for Pro Football Weekly through 2002. Joel passed in January of 2003. Buschbaum story

Nolan Nawrocki has been PFW's draft anayst since.

Some feel Buschbaum was as good as it gets and without him content is marginal at best.

Hope formats hold true

Talk about a fall from grace...

Terry Pierce was the #5-rated LB and he's completely out of football (I think). Even more surprising, an injury was not the culprit for his slide.

I've been waiting on EJ Henderson for three years now. Unfortunately, with Cowart completely out of the picture, I'll probably continue to wait another year (...or two). :bag:

Other notables include Lofa Tatupu and Kawika Mitchell. Both players were 2nd-round picks by their respective teams and have since become somewhat productive (Tatupu, especially). I was a little surprised to see them in the bottom-half of the list. If memory serves me, however, both players were considered "reaches" when they were drafted.

I'd like to see what Gerald Hayes can do. The Cardinals seem to be thinking the same considering they have not pursued any MLB help in the offseason.

If anything, these retrospective rankings show only what a crapshoot the draft is. Only 1 of the top 5 players has done anything with his career, and that's Vilma.

Little early to give up on E.J. Henderson. Dan Morgan has been fairly productive when he's on the field.

1st Rounders

Morris 1/28 in 2000, Morgan 1/11 in 2001, R. Thomas 1/31 2002, Vilma 1/12 2004

In 2003

Henderson was 2nd round 40th overall

Pierce 2/51

Hayes 3/70

This was the first year without Joel Buschbaum.

K. Mitchell at 2/47 was 2nd ILB drafted in 03 and Victor Hobson at 2/51 went before Hayes.
