JaMarcus Russell, QB, LSU (http://www.finheaven.com/images/imported/2007/04/video_icon-2.gifFILM ROOM (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/football/nfl/specials/draft/2007/video/?c=Player&p=86527)): If Russell goes No. 1 overall to the Raiders, No. 2 to the Lions or No. 3 to the Browns, he'll be placed in a position to lose that might be hard to climb out of. And there are still lingering questions about his passion for the game.

Jamaal Anderson, DE, Arkansas (http://www.finheaven.com/images/imported/2007/04/video_icon-2.gifFILM ROOM (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/football/nfl/specials/draft/2007/video/?c=Player&p=86431)): Anderson appears to be on his way up on draft boards around the NFL, but he may be benefiting from the lack of can't-miss defensive prospects in the first round. Anderson had one good year at Arkansas and is still raw.

Chris Houston, CB, Arkansas (http://www.finheaven.com/images/imported/2007/04/video_icon-2.gifFILM ROOM (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/football/nfl/specials/draft/2007/video/?c=Player&p=86430)): Houston has shot up draft boards since running a 4.32 40 at the combine, but there are several scouts who doubt his college production warrants a first-round selection.

Greg Olsen, TE, Miami (http://www.finheaven.com/images/imported/2007/04/video_icon-2.gifFILM ROOM (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/football/nfl/specials/draft/2007/video/?c=Player&p=86551)): Another possible workout wonder whose impressive physical skills didn't translate into consistent production at Miami. Olsen could go in the first half of the first round.

Joe Thomas, OT, Wisconsin (http://www.finheaven.com/images/imported/2007/04/video_icon-2.gifFILM ROOM (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/football/nfl/specials/draft/2007/video/?c=Player&p=86712)): This isn't a judgment on Thomas per se, but teams have had trouble evaluating elite left tackles the last few years. Robert Gallery was the No. 2 overall pick in 2004 and no one could have imagined he wouldn't pan out. Meanwhile, Marcus McNeill, who looks like a perennial All-Pro, fell to No. 50 overall last year. I think there's a lot of intangibles at this position and even though I'm probably alone on this one, I don't buy Thomas' "can't-miss" label.

All draftees are potential busts. Are you saying these five have the most potential to be busts?

i highly doubt greg olsen is a bust, he did not have a lot of production at miami b/c he was used mainly as a blocker because of our porous o line.

brady quinn has the biggest chance to be a bust
where ever he goes it will be hard to win
he has too much hype
might not live up to the expectations of everone sort of like eil manning and joey harrington

**** happens, nothing is for sure. But certain players fit certain systems better than others.

For example: A true pocket passer needs a strong pass protecting OL or he is ineffective. On the other hand someone like Roethlesberger may still be able to produce yards with a lousy line as he has the highest throwing on the run percentage of any active QB and he is big and elusive.

So if the Dolphins draft QB, that dude better be able to scramble, and I mean run for his life.

Green probably won't finish the year healthy unless Houck performs some kind of miracle, and Lemon is unproven.
Maybe we need to go with 4 QB's and one on the practice squad.

Not buying it!!! Too much hype? Everyone in the top 8 or so slots has a lot of hype.
