    um, he just about did that. And his hang time nearly touched God's fingertips. I don't know if he was along the lines of grand theft auto, but he made a difference in TONS of games. The list is a funny one though.

    I have to say. Some made absolutely no sense.

    Bo Jackson could be considered a steal. Didn't the Raiders give up a 7th for him.
    Bo was first a #1 pick from Tampa Bay.

    So really he was drafted twice, again I don't think that is a steal.

    Bo made the list... I forget where.



    Ray guy was ridiculous. Top ten surprising draft moves? Maybe. Good player? Absolutely.


    Eighth overall pick for a punter? NOT a steal.

    How can anybody top a 12th round draft pick who went on to six Pro Bowls (Mecklenburg)?

    Wow. That has to take #1 as the oversight of the century.

    Yeah seriously, how can a first rounder be a steal. I'd definitely go for Mack and Nalen

    If UDFA's were included on that list, even though it wouldn't make any sense, we'd have a third player on there for sure

    Marino was still a 1st round pick so he doesnt deserve to be on the list.


    Meck for sure was a steal in the 12th....He should take Marinos place.
