Linebacker A.J. Hawk was the fifth overall pick for the Green Bay Packers in the 2006 NFL Draft. Defensive end Mario Williams was the number one draft pick and was drafted by the Houston Texans. Running back Reggie Bush was the number two draft pick and was drafted by the New Orleans Saints. Quarterback Vince Young was the third overall pick and was drafted by the Tennessee Titans. Offensive tackle D'Brickashaw Ferguson was the fourth overall pick and was drafted by the New York Jets.

Mario Williams played for the North Carolina State Wolfpack. Reggie Bush played for the USC Trojans, was an All-American, and won the Heisman in 2005. Vince Young played for the Texas Longhorns and was an All-American. D'Brickashaw Ferguson played for the Viriginia Cavaliers and was an All-American.

Mario Williams is a four-time Pro Bowl selection and has had a stellar NFL career. D'Brickashaw Ferguson is a three-time Pro Bowl selection and he had a stellar career; having played in the NFL for ten seasons. Reggie Bush has played on five different NFL Teams (Saints, Dolphins, Lions, 49ers, and Bills), he won a Super Bowl with the Saints. Overall, Reggie Bush has had an average eleven-year career in the NFL. Vince Young played for the Titans and Eagles, but his career was a bust. There you have it, at least two teams (Saints and Titans), that wish they would have picked A.J. Hawk over who they did pick. Just goes to show you that picking the right talent in the NFL Draft is not easy.
