17. (168) Chris Henry
18. (173) Richard Marshall
19. (188) Marty Booker
20. (193) Chad Pennington

Lots of strange picks here. Reggie Bush went slightly earlier than I expected (Addai/Westbrook were still available), even with the PPR scoring system. Made two excellent second and third round choices to get Bulger and Rudi Johnson. Receiver core of Moss/Boldin/Jackson/Curtis will be productive, but not difference-makers. The wheels on this draft start to fall apart beginning in round 10, instead of building more offensive depth the pick here went to the Texans linebacker DeMeco Ryans. Four rounds later, kicker Robbie Gould gets taken. Ryans ended up being the first of four individual defensive players taken, a questionable move that I don’t see working out in this team’s favor. San Diego’s defense is a nice pickup, Ahman Green will surprise his doubters (I was hoping he’d drop to me at the end of round 8), and Chad Pennington will be benched for Kellen Clemens by the end of the year.
