If you are a hawk and drafted in first round you have a long NFL career

Given that he was the #2 overall pick, Gallery often gets the bust label. He's the one who stands out as underperforming. But he did still stick around on a roster for 8 seasons.

When Robert got drafted by the Raiders, they were a team in decline. A good player can sometimes get stuck on an underwhelming team and it affects his career. That said, he lasted eight years and made his money. Nothing to be ashamed of.

Gallery may have been overselected at 2 looking back. But he still had a pretty decent career for anyone not taken in the top 10.
Imagine if he'd gone to a good team that used him correctly. Instead of a team in the Raiders who kept changing his OL coach just about every year. He also had 4 head coaches in his 7 seasons in Oakland.
