How we forget.

CNNSI.com - SI Online - Peter King - Monday Morning QB - Peter King's Monday Morning QB: Scaling the NFL Draft - Monday April 22, 2002 02:24 PM

2. Washington. We all knew Dan Snyder needed to do something starry in this draft. He couldn't get the receiver he coveted, Tennessee sprinter Donte' Stallworth (Steve Spurrier would have turned him into a legend). So Washington traded down twice for the player it might have taken at 18, Tulane quarterback Patrick Ramsey, and picked up three extra picks in the process. Ramsey had become a hot prospect since the scouting combine for his incredibly tireless arm -- one scout told me he threw to receiver after receiver for their workouts in Indianapolis and estimated he threw 2,000 passes while at the combine -- and what-do-you-want-me-to-do-next work ethic. One quibble: Ladell Betts in the second round? They could have used that pick more wisely.

Seems Peter King was right on in his analysis again.

Re: How we forget.

I wonder if he's said anything about the Skins not needing Portis because they have Betts, that'd be tight to put next to eachother in the email.

Re: How we forget.

I went back and looked at the 2002 draft to see how we might have 'better used' our second round pick. Definitely no one you would take over Betts, though Sheldon Brown and Michael Lewis went to Philadelphia in back-to-back picks a little later on in the round, they are the only people you might have heard of. I do notice a ton of scrubs got picked ahead of Portis, who went at #51 (just a few picks ahead of Betts at #56). The real kick in the junk came in the third round when the Skins took Rashaud Bauman and Cliff Russell ahead of Brian Westbrook. Ouch . . . The real thing that I was reminded of was that the draft is a complete crapshoot. Pretty much every top 10 pick that year (save Julius Peppers) was a bust (including Ryan Sims, the DT taken at [gulp] #6 overall). If anything this reinforces the importance of trading down to get more picks because you really have no idea who is going to be good so the more chances the better.

Re: How we forget.

Betts was worth the second round, I think he showed some skills last year. I definitely don't agree with Mr. King.
