Raji is to Crabtree as Vonnie Holliday is to _________?

Anyone else reminded of the 1998 draft?

That was the year that Ron Wolf drafted Vonnie Holliday and watched Randy Moss get drafted two spots later.

Holliday was a productive player for the Packers (and arguably Wolf's best first round draft pick during his tenure with the Packers).  Nevertheless, Holliday was by no means a franchise player.

Years later, Wolf lamented selecting Holliday over Moss, identifying the decision as a "big regret."

"Can't miss picks" miss all the time, so only time will tell whether Thompson made the right call or cracked under pressure.  

Crabtree sure looks like the real deal, though.
