    2005 Draft, hands down. Just look at the 1st 10 picks:

    1. Alex Smith, Quarterback, 49ers

    2. Ronnie Brown, Running Back, Dolphins.

    3. Braylon Edwards, Wide Receiver, Browns

    4. Cedric Benson, Running Back, Bears

    5. Carnell Williams, Running Back, Buccaneers

    6. Adam "Pacman" Jones, Cornerback, Titans

    7. Troy Williamson, Wide Receiver, Vikings

    8. Antrel Rolle, Cornerback, Cardinals

    9. Carlos Rogers, Cornerback, Redskins

    10. Mike Williams, Wide Receiver, Lions

    What Rorschach failed to mention regarding the 1st round of 2005:

    11. DeMarcus Ware - 3-time All-Pro

    12. Shawne Merriman - 3-time All-Pro

    13. Jammal Brown - Pro Bowl OT

    24. Aaron Rodgers - Pro Bowler, best QB in NFL not named Manning, Brees, or Brady

    27. Roddy White - Pro Bowl WR rapidly ascending to stardom

    30. Heath Miller - Pro Bowl TE

    32. Logan Mankins - All-Pro

    Throw in Rolle, Edwards and Ronnie Brown from Top 10, and that's not a bad first round, let alone the worst in history.

    Definitely the 2005 led by Alex Smith and Pacman

    2004 was pretty bad. http://www.nfl.com/draft/history/fulldraft?season=...

    2005 wasn't very good either. http://www.nfl.com/draft/history/fulldraft?season=...

    2000 was below average. http://www.nfl.com/draft/history/fulldraft?season=...

    Those were probably the worst years of the decade.
