In 2003, the Saints wanted Georgia DT Johnathan Sullivan bad enough to trade the 17th and 18th-overall draft picks for Arizona's sixth slot. Sullivan lasted three seasons in the NFL.

Yeah, that wasn't a good day to be a Saint fan. I was so ****** off that i questioned why am I a Saints fan? No wonder we have been losers for 30 + years of our existance.

And Reggie "Hollywood" Bush could even be a bigger mistake yet.

bearsfanforever, you could not be more wrong. Regardless of how Reggie turns out drafting Reggie can not be viewed as a bad choice. At the time the selection of Reggie was made it was by all accounts the correct choice. At the time passing on Reggie would have been viewed a monumental mistake. On the other hand many (pro and amatuer draft gurus alike) thought the Sullivan trade up and selection was a bad deal and a reach.

You cannot measure a player's heart and desire to play hard once he receives a paycheck. The draft is littered with Sullivans -talented, but lacks a strong work ethic.

Keep that in mind as you watch this draft unfold... there will be many teams who draft yet another Jonathan Sullivan.

What you do with these mistakes and how soon you can correct them is the difference between winning organizations and losing ones.

It's just my opinion but I never thought Reggie was an every down back but a GOOD player. I just thought he should be a second/third round pickup. Anway, back on topic.

All teams make mistakes like Sullivan. Sometimes a player has great Physical ability and no desire or work ethic. We have a first round draft pick exactly like that.

you cant be serious... every other person in the WORLD had Bush as the #1 pick ... and you think he was a 2ond or 3rd ROUND pick.... you just lost a ton of credibility on these boards....

Did Sullivan work out at the combine? how did he do?. Now with NFLN you can pretty much see all the prospects on tv doing there thing-that would have been nice then.
