NFL.com article puts Philip Rivers and Ladanian Tomlinson in the top 25 best draft picks since 2000.
Rivers, although technically wasn’t a Chargers draft pick, comes in at #24.
He was part of the deal with the Giants that sent Manning packing. (Good riddance!)
Yeah Rivers had a tough season in 2011 but I gotta say, even though Manning has 2 rings already, I would rather have Rivers as my QB any day.
Ladanian Tomlinson was the 5th overall pick in 2001and came in at #2.
Although I wasn’t too happy with how L.T. treated his old team last season during the Jets game, I love what he did for this team.
Yeah, there was friction between he and A.J. Smith but after that speech he gave at Junior Seau’s tribute, how can you help but love the guy.
Let’s hope this years draft picks can end up on a similar list someday.
Hall of Fame would be even better.
