You can't get JaMarcus Russell every time; you gotta find a few good players when you spend nearly a whole decade picking first.
Exactly. For all the wasted picks on guys like Darius Hayward-Bey, Robert Gallery and Jamarcus Russell, who is probably the biggest bust in NFL history, they are bound to fail themselves into something eventually just playing the numbers. Even the Lions under Millen drafted Megatron.
