Granted Fowler kind of fell into your lap, but other guys like Getzlaf, Perry, Ryan (also an easy pick); but still a lot of really good prospects with not so high draft picks (Schultz, Etem, Roy, Gibson, Vatanen, Palmieri)

Pretty incredible
As pointed out before, Ryan wasn't such a sought after prospect at the time at all. He was projected Top 10, but certainly not Top 3. Burke tried heavily to trade down because he was so sure he could pick him up a little later. Didn't work out and so we drafted him #2.

It was a close call between Jack Johnson and Benoit Pouliot (not kidding).
