I don't have anything against being thrown, I even enjoy it.
I completely understand that randori is not for winning, but for learning. The throw I did was with a technique we learned that same training, that I wanted to try and get to work for me (it was a variant of seoi nage, with both hands on the same side, pulling from the outside, and dropping on knees under the arm), and it worked really well, that's all.
What I don't enjoy, and had a problem with, is seeing no progress at all, and being beaten 100% of the time. But I accept that as part of the learning curve now.
Also, I'm an orange belt. Bow before me.

fixing the errors
If you are a big guy as you said, probably eriseoinage is not very good for you. Is better for you to train other stuff like taiotoshi, haraigoshi, uchimata or sasaetsurikomiashi, that are more easy to performe to a big guy with long legs.
But the problem INMHO is another: why you never succed to throw in randori?
Randori is not a competition, but a free lerning practice. So if you never throw there are only two possibility:
1) your throw has some flaws
2) your opponets make a very hard defence
In the first case, you may ask to your sensei to see your moves and fix the errors.
In the second case, I'm sorry to say, is your sensei who failed to explain to his students the correct attitude to do randori.
I hope you will solve your problems and enjoy Judo, that is fantastic.
