    Yeah those seem about right. Didn't we reach for both underwood and Alexander? If I remember correctly we did so that just magnifies how bad they turned out. What a couple of debacles!

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    The speed was there, but Williamson was never able to hold on to the ball when he was open
    Always hard when you can't even get them on the ball in the first place. I remember his lone TD in '07 against the Bears, my wife and I couldn't work out what shocked the Bears most - the fact that Williamson caught the ball or the fact that it was Tarvaris Jackson that threw the pass
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    Personally I think Williamson at #7 was a bigger bust than Underwood at #29.

    Underwood is considered a bust because he never played, Williams played 3 years for us and was just as productive.

    Assuming they all got paid first round money, im sure they are doing just fine out the game.

    We should have taken Mike Williams like most people here wanted.

    Oh wait!

    Have to disagree C Mac. Underwood was a first rounder that never even made it out of his first training camp.Has that ever even happened before or since? Williamson even found another team who thought he could play. He actually even tried to make an effort to get better.

    Good list... Most of those picks were from the Denny Green years... He couldn't draft defense to save his life... Ridiculous offensive drafter though...

    Underwood went on to play for the Dolphins and Cowboys... so he also found teams who thought he could play, more than Williamson actually.

    But if Williamson 'improving' results in 8 catches for 64 yards and 1 TD... in two years... well, I rest my case.
