NFL.com senior analyst Pat Kirwan looks back at the 2004 NFL Draft in a piece called, “Draft Do-Overs”.
Actual pick: Eli Manning
Do-over pick: Ben Roethlisberger
Rivers has had an outstanding career and is the main reason for the Chargers’ run of success. But unlike Roethlisberger, he hasn’t won the big one. Bottom line: Roethlisberger has been to three Super Bowls and come up with two rings. The guy is a winner.
