    I think this was a transformational draft like the one that flipped the script in '77

    Since that was before my time I immediately thought of the cartoon show king of the hill. Now I feel dumb.

    well, those two were great players for us but Fitz and Gesicki are freaks so they have a chance to be even better tho of course at different positions

    Duhe had that monster AFC Championship game against NYJ. Beyond that, he was solid, but not much more - about on the level of Odrick.

    He was better than Odrick. I know he only went to one pro bowl but should have gone to at least 2 or 3. Baumhower was better tho and went to several pro bowls

    I remember when Shula told Baumhower that he was going to switch him to NG Baumhower was not sold- but eventually it turned out to be the right move.
    Baumhower was a seriously good player.
    Moving Bokamper to defensive end happened around the same time. But Bokamper wasn't as big as a DE in a 3-4 should be, and we were too small going into that Super Bowl vs Washington.

    Ed Reed would be in that conversation, Rod Woodson when he position changed, Steve Atwater, Ronnie Lott, Troy Palomalu to name a few

    That is not true. Duhe created mayhem. He was a tremendous player for about 3 year stretch.
