    Good read but SportsIssurated is retarded for not making Tom Brady number 1, drafted in the 6th round and won 3 Superbowls, he is number 1 on my list

    Good point. Steve Smith (their #1) was a 3rd-round choice. That's not nearly as much of a reach as a 6th-rounder like Brady.

    Heck - I'd pick Shannon Sharpe or Terrell Davis over Steve Smith as well in this category.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    I agree it should have been Brady!

    The should not have included 3rd rounders as they are still high draft picks and expected to succeed, should have only been 4th round or later.

    T-Ho being chosen why? He was a 3rd rounder and he may have talent but his psycho personality has made him not a star, but a cancer on every team he has been with!
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    Smith should be ranked a little lower, yes he is a great WR but he was taken in the 3rd round for goodness sake those should be good players. I would say that Brady should be #1.

    Where is Larry Allen on the list, he was a late round pick as well (I believe) and he is a future Hall of Famer?

    F*** Tom Brady...those 3 SBs were as much a function of their defense as anything! Anyway, he doesn't get to win EVERYTHING!!! :evil:

    Tom Brady is my boy, but even if he wasn't there is no way that I could deny how big of a bargain he was. No way that Steve Smith was a bigger bargain than he was. Sixth Round and lead the team to three Super Bowl victories, that is about as good as you can do.

    What??? No Brad Johnson...he was taken very late...and still won a Super Bowl as well as becoming a starter for four teams in his career.

    Anti-Viking bias....that's what it is!!! The main reason that they overlooked that bias in Birk's case is because he went to Harvard (another example of East Coast bias trumping everything)!
