With the upcoming NFL draft, there is always a question as to whether or not a player is actually going to develop from a college stud into a quality professional player. Sometimes it is difficult to know who is good and who isn’t. After all Tom Brady went in the sixth round, and now he’s poised to be the greatest QB in NFL history. With that being said though, here are some of the biggest NFL draft busts as determined by Sports Illustrated and Bleacher Report based on the draft position and the players drafted around him.
This guy was a monster in college playing for Michigan State at tackle and was taken as the number 2 guy in 1989. He went before Barry Sanders, Derrick Thomas and Deion Sanders. He ended up having three alright seasons before calling it quits, dissapointing his fans on the team at Beneful.
Another MSU player and another number 2 selection, he turned out to be a giant bust for the Lions and only had 36 catches in three seasons.
As the top selection in the 2007 draft for Oakland, many thought he would be the savior of the franchise, but in 25 games as a starter he tossed 18 touchdowns and 38 turnovers.
Probably the biggest bust of all time, he went number 2 to San Diego from Washington State, he completed 48 percent of his passes with 43 turnovers.
