Being that Mueller will be the main man in the personell department.....I thought that it would be interesting to take a quick peak at his draft history....with the Seahawks from 95-99 and the Saints from 00-02.

Below are some of his best picks from those drafts:

RND PICK PLAYER POS SCHOOL
1 8 Joey Galloway WR Ohio State
1 21 Pete Kendall G Boston College
4 99 Phillip Daniels DE Georgia
1 3 Shawn Springs CB Ohio State
1 6 Walter Jones T Florida State
6 174 Itula Mili TE Brigham Young
1 15 Anthony Simmons OLB Clemson
3 76 Ahman Green RB Nebraska
2 33 Darren Howard DE Kansas State
5 166 Chad Morton RB Southern California
6 168 Marc Bulger QB West Virginia
1 23 Deuce McAllister RB Mississippi
3 70 Sedrick Hodge OLB North Carolina
1 25 Charles Grant DE Georgia
2 44 LeCharles Bentley C Ohio State
5 150 Mel Mitchell SS Western Kentucky
6 186 J.T. O'Sullivan QB Cal-Davis

-Obviously, Ahman Green in the third round jumps out at you....I think that he may have been a backup for most of his career at Nebraska to L.Phillips, and prob only started in '97.

-Bulger in the 6th was a great pick.....I do think that he's a tad overrated becasue of his inflated stats in the STL offense....but still for a 6th rnd pick, an amazing value.

-Darren Howard and Charles Grant are stud DE's for the Saints now.....both nice picks.

-LeCharles Bentley has played at a Pro-Bowl level since his rookie year.

-Deuce is a top-10 back AND the pick was the pre-cursor to trading Ricky Williams and getting 2 1st round picks.

Overall, not bad.

Check out the article in the "Outside Sources" thread.

Shows all of his moves in Seattle and NO, and shows he was a tremendous drafter and a great engineer of trades.

Pretty good record, yea.

Well we need to see his whole drafts, are these just the ones who stood out..how many of his players are still in the NFL.relative, (thanks saban), to not staying with the his team who drafted him...how many bursts does he have and are the ones listed above the only late round talent that made it in the NFL? I'm still suspicious, he was available for a reason.

He took Anthony Simmons and could of had Rand Moss.

Same draft he took Todd Wiener in the 2nd and he could of had Hines Ward

He took Bulger in the 6th He could have taken Tom Brady

He got 2 1sts and a 4th for Ricky yeah look who he did the deal with. based off of that he could have got more.

Those are just some off of my head. I'm sure there is more if i did research.

This Guy Knows Talent And It's Nice To See We Have A Real Gm Now.

So you mean Chambers, McMike, Welker, Bua, Pope etc... are not real talents...Spielman's mistakes were that he gave too much to acquire too little...Like the Aj Feely and Gordon trade, but in my opinion, he is as good as it gets to evaluate talents..

If you read the other thread, it explains that he wanted Moss but ownership was hesitant because of his attitude.

Based off of the article I just read, he wanted Moss, but the woner veto'd it - Simmons is not a bad consolation prize......he could have taken John Avery too,

Every team in the league passed on Hines Ward......he only went that high because it was the Steelers, who love the hybrid college QB....(Kodell "Slash" Stewart, Hines, Randel El)

He could have taken Brady, but he also could have taken Spergon Wynn (who alos went in the 6th ahead of Brady).......we're talking the 6th round......the 168th pick! Every player at that point has questions....or they would have went already. Give the guy some credit for finding a gem.....same way the Patriots are given credit for finding Brady.

He got a great deal for Ricky.........I'm not even going to justify your remark with an expanation.

that's 11 probowl caliber players over 9 years. drafting an average of 1 probowler a year is pretty good.
