Wow there are a few busts on that list. I still cant believe Grossman was a 1st round pick.


Charles Rogers and Kyle Boller would be my top 2 busts from 2002.

charles rogers doesn't care about football, and that's pretty evident. kyle boller shouldn't have been drafted on the first day of the draft, let alone the first round

I think it is a bit early to write of Grossman. He plays well when healthy. Two freak injuries have cost him pretty much two seasons. One more season of injury I say makes him a bust.

I dunno about Jerome McDougle also. I mean he was shot and couldnt play this year.

william joseph is by no means an all-star, but he has held down a starting position for the g-men. that's enough not to label him a bust.

Rex isn't a bust...Chicago would probably only have 1 or 2 losses if Rex weren't injured

That's 2003 not 2002 and anyone who thinks Robertson is a borderline bust has not watched him play.

In 3 years he's played 6 games. A low completion percentage, 3 TDs & 3 Ints. He's been a bust. If he's not playing he's not living up to the 1st round billing. That's why Ki-Jana Carter & Yatil Green are busts.

Yeah right homer.

Stop being a Homie

The guy struggled as a rookie, was near dominant last year and has taken a slight step back this year but is still good- he's nowhere near a bust.

I think Boller might do well with a change of scenery. Sometimes when you get off on a bad foot on one team, the only thing that can turn it around for you is a fresh start. I don't think there is any argument that he has all the physical tools to be a good QB, but I agree he hasn't done anything but lick balls since he came in the league.

I disagree with some of these

2 Detroit CHARLES ROGERS-I'll give you that.

6 New Orleans JOHNATHAN SULLIVAN-Yeah. Saints traded two picks for him, when they should have taken Trufant. One of many Saints to not live up to their potential

12 St. Louis JIMMY KENNEDY-He hasn't been bad this year, but he's not as good as he was made out to be coming out of Penn State.

14 Chicago MICHAEL HAYNES-I don't think he's a bust. Chicago has Wale, and Brown ahead of him, but Lovie rotates his DL a lot and Haynes has made plays in Lovie's defense the last two years.

15 Philadelphia JEROME MCDOUGLE-Him getting shot buys him another year, but he was well on his way to being a bust (didn't do anything the first two years)

18 Arizona CALVIN PACE-Stupid pick to begin with.

19 Baltimore KYLE BOLLER-He's not great, but I have seen improvement in him the last couple weeks

22 Chicago REX GROSSMAN-When he plays, he's been good for the Bears, he just won't play much now because the team is winning and Orton is playing well.

25 New York WILLIAM JOSEPH-Not dominating, but is a decent DT.

26 San Francisco KWAME HARRIS-We almost traded up for this guy. I'm glad San Fran turned us down. He gets a lot of holding penalties

32 Oakland TYLER BRAYTON-yes. He was drafted as a DT, we moved to DE, played OLB in the 3-4, and is now an OLB in the 4-3. He hasn't been a force in any way.

Borderline Busts
4 New York DEWAYNE ROBERTSON-No, he rose up draft boards because of his 40's, but he's been an above average NT for the Jets.

17 Arizona BRYANT JOHNSON- No, he's been hurt this year, but he's a good 3rd option.

20 Denver GEORGE FOSTER- Matter of opinion, to me he's played well, but I don't see him play that much.

21 Cleveland JEFF FAINE- I don't thing so. He's started since his rookie season

28 Tennessee ANDRE WOOLFOLK-Yeah, he and Pac Man have done nothing while two later round picks (Hill this year, and Gardner last year) have outplayed them

30 San Diego SAMMY DAVIS-The fact Jammar Fletchar is ahead of him on the depth chart should tell you something.

The guy is one of the best DTs in football.

i wouldnt say Foster was a bust...1000 yard runningbacks every year and Plummer doesnt get sacked alot
