Who are best draft picks since 2000?

Who’s the best draft pick of this millennium? NFL.com analyst Elliot Harrison ponders just that as he lists the top 25 picks since 2000.

Some hightlights from Harrison’s list:

Calvin Johnson: “The league’s most explosive wide receiver should have been the top overall pick in 2007, but the Raiders made the JaMarcus Russell mistake.”

Julius Peppers: “Considering David Carr went before Peppers and Joey Harrington immediately after … perhaps this is Case 1.0 that drafting a “franchise” quarterback is not always best.”

Adrian Peterson: “The competition in this stratosphere — the top first-round picks of the 2000s — is ridiculous.”

LaDainian Tomlinson: “Just think: Young football fans who are just starting high school probably think of Tomlinson as an average third-down back.”
