Re: How we forget.

It's kind of wild to think that Portis was only like 5 picks above Betts in that draft.

Re: How we forget.

There were more people than just Peter King saying Ladell Betts was a reach in the second round. He was projected to go somewhere in the 4th.

Honestly, is Portis only five picks better than Betts?

Peter king has never played a down of football in his entire life. He should stick to reporting the news and leave out the anaylasis.

Re: How we forget.

I think Peter King gets paid to call on some bold predictions. Heck, you're going to get one or two right eventually.

Re: How we forget.

Even more from the same article:

I Can't Figure Out What They Did

23. Carolina. I don't want to kill the Panthers, but this is not the time to be picking boom-or-bust guys. I bet 75 percent of NFL personnel people think DeShaun Foster, at his best, is a top-five pick in any draft, and, at his worst, is a coach-killer. Terminal fumbler. Attitude guy. They'd better hope Julius Peppers is special -- and that Chris Weinke is good enough to make people not dwell on the success Joey Harrington will have as an NFL player. Because he will have some.

24. Denver. Mike Shanahan, you know you're the man. But you had a weird weekend. You'll probably make something good out of top pick Ashley Lelie, even though he's had a hamstring injury longer than I've been shaving. But Clinton Portis in the second round? New rule in the NFL this year: You can't have more than 16 running backs on the roster, Mike.

29. Green Bay. I do like Javon Walker. I do not like him enough to pay a first- and second-round pick for him. That deal, moving up in the first round to get Walker, meant the Packers, who have their share of age on the roster, had one pick in the top 90.

14. Philadelphia. I trust that Jim Johnson, the defensive coordinator, will be able to turn three defensive backs -- Sheldon Brown, the corner from South Carolina, especially -- into valued players on a good defense. I mention Brown because he is a supremely high-character guy, and a player who might get beat, but in the long run will never let a team down. Also, I always love the local-boy-makes-good story, and the drafting of pip-squeakish running back Brian Westbrook from Villanova will give the Vet Stadium louts something to cheer for as a situational player.

Re: How we forget.

And another gem from PK

20. Cleveland. I love William Green. So he had some college trouble. So he smoked pot. So he ticked a few of his coaches with some attitude. Watch the man play. Watch him make reliable, Emmitt Smith-type moves. Watch him maximize his holes. One question, though: Why did an AFC GM tell me on Friday that the Browns were trying to move Jamir Miller? You need Miller, Butch. He's a cornerstone player.
