Biggest NFL Busts

The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Charles Rogers - No. 2 to Lions in 2003

He was picked 1st overall and only played 5 games in his first 3 years

22Troy Williamson - No. 7 to Vikings In 2005
23Kenneth Gameday Sims - No 1 overall to New England in 1982
24Ki-Jana Carter - No 1 to Bengals in 95

Blown out knee in 1st preseason game and never was the same

25Rich Campbell - No 6 to Packers in 1980

I was afraid that history would repeat itself when the Packers drafter Aaron Rodgers.

26Aundray Bruce - No 1 to Falcons in 88

Had productive career..WITH RAIDERS.

27Todd Blackledge - No 7 to Chiefs in 83
28Ricky Williams - No 5 to Saints in 1999
29Vernon Gholston - No 6 to Jets in 2008

Aw man, he never recorded a sack in his career. Pretty pathetic because he was a top-10 pick. - thomwim

30Daunte Culpepper - No 11 to Vikings in 1999Daunte Rachard Culpepper is a former American football quarterback. He last played for the Sacramento Mountain Lions of the United Football League.

The worst QB of his class, he should have spent his whole career in ARENA Football.

31Kevin Allen - No 9 to Eagles in 1985

Played one TERRIBLE season, tested positive for cocaine, spent 33 months in jail for sexual assault, got banned from the NFL, and spent the rest of his days in the WLAF and Arena Football. And to think the Eagles passed on Jerry Rice!

32Lawrence Phillips - No 6 to Rams in 1996

This running back couldn't stay out of trouble. He was cut in the middle of his second season, spent a year in Spain, missed a block that ended Steve Young's career, wound up in Canada, and now he's rotting away in jail. And to think the Rams gave up on Jerome Bettis! They passed on Eddie George and Ray Lewis for a criminal. - thomwim

33Jamaal Anderson - No 8 to Falcons In 2007
34Brady Quinn - No 22 to Browns in 2007
35Trent Richardson - No 3 to Browns in 2012
36Blaine Gabbert - No 1 to Jaguars in 2011
37Marcell Dareus - No 3 to Bills in 2011V1 Comment
38Robert Griffin III - No 2 to Redskins in 2012Robert Lee Griffin III, nicknamed RG3, is an American football quarterback for the Cleveland Browns of the National Football League.
39Vince Young - No 3 to Titans in 06Vincent Paul Young, Jr. is a former American football quarterback who played in the National Football League for six seasons.

One of the worst quaterbacks of all time. Now he's a backup and thats exactly were he belongs.
