    Can you look that up for everyone please?
    It's time to be successful Coach Philbin. Have you decided what you should master yet? It's time to step up Mr. Tannehill, you're starting year three too.

    2000 Courtney brown (Bust?)
    2001 Mike Vick (we know how he is)
    2002 David Carr (bust?)
    2003 Carson palmer (He is getting there)
    2004 Eli manning (Give him Time)
    2005 Alex Smith (No clue how he'll be)

    Just looking at the #1's and #2's. There are several busts in the last 20 years. So you better know your stuff.

    there aren't that many "can't miss" guys, but here are some that i know of:

    2000- courtney brown, peter warrick
    2001- gerard warren
    2002- mike williams
    2003- charles rogers
    2004- sean taylor

    i think sean taylor has a great future, but he's looked pretty poor this year

    I'm talking about can't-miss-sure-fire-gonna be a stud in the NFL player.

    Like Ryan Leaf.

    Or that guy out of Iowa State who led the NCAA in rushing.
