    We would be in the top ten if we didn't draft Troy.

    Anyone see a trend in the top teams?

    Front office: Like Indianapolis' Bill Polian, Smith was tutored under the late John Butler of Buffalo Bills fame.

    Biggest mistake: Chargers general manager Alex Smith hasn't made many. All 16 of San Diego's picks chosen between rounds one and four the past four years remain on the roster.
    Front office: Polian earned the contract extension he recently received from team owner Jim Irsay. Polian has done an exceptionally good job surrounding quarterback Peyton Manning with talent and identifying players who can shine in Tony Dungy's cover-two defensive system.
    Front office: Bill Belichick and Scott Pioli concentrate heavily on linemen (offensive and defensive) with early picks and love moving down, especially if such maneuvering secures choices for the following year.
    Front office: General manager Tim Ruskell has headed the past three drafts after coach Mike Holmgren was stripped of personnel power.
    Front office: Jerry Reese did a splendid job in his first season as New York Giants general manager replacing Ernie Accorsi, who held the spot for the previous nine drafts. Seven of last year's picks contributed during New York's Super Bowl run
    Front office: Call him "Trader Ted." Since hired in 2005, Thompson has parlayed 11 picks into a total of 17 selections by trading down on every transaction. Five of those players could be starting this season, including budding wide receiver Greg Jennings.

    Draft rankings include more than just first round picks my friend.
    If you are gonna focus just on the first round picks from that year then lets not forget Erasmus James as well.

    I broke it down a few months back on who we drafted and who is still in the league so you can go look that up if you want, but here is a good refresher/starting point if you want to see why we are rated so low (and it isn't just because of Troy).

    pretty good and accurate list i think. the bucs draft last year got them from worst to first. i know that is only one year, but its better than notihng.
    We're bringing purple back.

    Re: Draft report: Top teams of last 5 years

    That seems to be a fair assessment of us. We have had a couple of solid hits and a couple of bad misses, so we porbably belong somewhere in the middle of the pack.

    Most surprising to me? There are actually 3 teams ranked lower than the Lions.
