Mine would be Greg Olsen. That's who I was really hoping for, and I just knew that's who we were going to get. I was surprised he was still on the board at that time...then Justin Harrell's name came up and I'm like WHO IS HE?!?!?

I think Greg Olsen would have been good for us, and he was one of our needs at the time.


I wanted Greg Olsen then and now that it's in hindsight, I can unfortunately say "I told you so." Not you, of course because you also said Greg Olson.

I wish I was wrong and Bustin turned out to be a stud, but I was unfortunately right. :(

Remember who Greg Olsen's QB is...


I hear ya on that, but I just don't see great potential, granted I don't watch a lot of Bears games. Maybe I am biased because I absolutely love the potential of JerMichael Finley and what he brings to the table, and if we had drafted Greg Olsen that would cause us not to have him.

I also love the potential that Jermichael Finley has. I want to see him with some more playing time.

But remember, Finley wasn't in that draft, Olsen was the best TE available there. We're talking about then, not now haha.

But I agree, we probably wouldn't have Finley if we had Olsen, but who would be better I wonder as a true starter...I don't know because neither get all of the time at TE.

Which is why I said originally I did want Olsen, but knowing what I do now I would rather not have him. :icon_smile:

Going into the draft I thought it was a lock that the Packers were going to get Marshawn Lynch one way or another and was really disappointed that we didn't. After he got selected my focus changed to Griffin, Weddle, or Olsen because quite frankly they were the only ones I knew about from watching them in College, since I was so sure that we had Lynch locked up I didn't care to look at any other first rounders. When we picked Harrell I felt like throwing my TV out the window.

After looking at this season and the injuries to Bigby and Rouse, and the players that were still available.

Michael Griffen would have been nice in the safety depth this year.

Yeah, I wanted Lynch badly. I actually went to one game and saw him get 3 TDs - one rushing and two receiving. Granted it was against Oregon State, but still, the guy had so much flash. I was really bummed when the Bills got him.

Basically this thread confirms that it was a crap draft year. If they were coming out this year I'm not sure a name mentioned other than Beason even smells the first round.

I was waiting for that response.. no real true impact players beyond the top 15 other than Beason to date.

Solid contributing players for sure were around.. but none that have taken the NFL by storm.

Then look at James Jones numbers compared to TE and WR taken ahead of him.. not bad value eh.

I would've gone for Aaron Ross, probably. I can't stand Olsen. The dude can't make a single play on the football field without blatantly pushing off. I need to actually like the guys I cheer for, and like how they play. That rules out Olsen.
