Pistons Draft history under Joe Dumars...
How do you grade Dumars draft history?

01 - 1st round: Rodney White, other SF's that wen't after this pick were Joe Johnson, Richard Jefferson, Gerald Wallace. 2nd round: Okur, good pick

02 - 1st round: Prince, great pick.

03 - 1st round: Darko, players available at the time Wade, Melo, Bosh. 2nd round: Andreas Glyniadakis

04 - No first rounder (Part of the deal to get Sheed), 2nd round: Rickey Paulding

05 - Round 1: Jason Maxiell, 4 picks later another PF was selected, David Lee. Round 2: Amir Johnson, the next pick was Gortat.

06 - Round 2: Will Blaylock

07 - Round 1: Rodney Stuckey & Aaron Afflalo, good picks. Round 2: Sammy Mejia

08 - Round 1: DJ White, Big men selected just after included Deandre Jordan & Omir Asik. Round 2: Deron Washington

09 - 1st Round: Austin Daye, the next 3 players selected were Ty Lawson, Jrue Holiday and Jeff Teague. Round 2: DaJuan Summers, Jerebko, Budinger (Blair was the pick directly after Summers).

10 - 1st Round: Monroe, Great pick. 2nd round: Terrico White, 3 picks later Landry Fields was selected.

11 - 1st Round: Brandon Knight, Great pick. 2nd Round: Kyle Singler, Vernon Macklin.

When I look back at how we have drafted, we have not had all that much success have we? Hopfully with another strong selection in the upcoming draft we can reverse the trend.

Hind sight is a wonderful thing, but just for fun if we drafted the bolded players instead of our real selections..

PG - Knight / Lawson
SG - Wade / Stuckey
SF - Prince / Wallace
PF - Lee / Jerebko / Blair
C - Monroe / Gortat / Blair

You forgot about Carlos Delfino.

Good spot! My bad, he was either in the Prince draft or the 03 super draft, late 1st rounder if memory serves me well? I think he was a good pick up, really liked his game..

Not a lot of GMs have a better hit rate in the draft than GM. Lots of hits on NBA level players in the late 1st and early 2nd in Prince,Afflalo,Maxiell(not my favorite player or anything lol),Okur,Jerebko and Delfino. His high firsts were awful early on, but he has rebounded pretty well lately with Stuckey,Monroe and Knight. Part of me wishes we took Faried, but I can't complain about Knight.

For the most part Joe D has been pretty good with the draft. A lot of those picks are later in the first round so I wouldn't expect all-star level talent for those sorts of picks anyway. There's plenty of other GM's who also missed on some of those players. At least this draft is pretty deep so I feel like a lot of teams will be getting some PF's and C's who will help them out.
