Biggest NFL Busts

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Trent Richardson - No 3 to Browns in 2012 Trent Richardson - No 3 to Browns in 2012
22 Aundray Bruce - No 1 to Falcons in 88

Had productive career..WITH RAIDERS.

23 Tim Tebow - No. 25 to Denver in 2010

Seriously? They already have 2 below average quarterbacks! Why do they need 3? - AP1090

You know what's funny about Tebow is yes his not an NFL caliber QB, but hey he got a playoff win. Many QB's today have a losing streak in the playoffs, and can't get over the hump still. - htoutlaws2012

24 Kenneth Gameday Sims - No 1 overall to New England in 1982
25 Troy Williamson - No. 7 to Vikings In 2005
26 Rich Campbell - No 6 to Packers in 1980

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

27 Jahvid Best - No. 30 to Lions In 2010

Trade to 30 for this guy? Jahvid Best was suppose to be the next Barry Sanders, instead he had like 2 100 yard games, and could not be consistent enough to what Barry had done in the 90's. This pretty much marked the curse of finding a great quality running back for the Lions for quite sometime. - htoutlaws2012

28 Sam Bradford - No 1 to Rams in 2010

Injuries destroyed this man's career - htoutlaws2012

29 Jared Goff - No 1 to Rams in 2016 V 1 Comment
30 Todd Blackledge - No 7 to Chiefs in 83
31 Ricky Williams - No 5 to Saints in 1999
32 Vernon 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

33 Kevin 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!

34 Lawrence 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

35 Jamaal Anderson - No 8 to Falcons In 2007
36 Brady Quinn - No 22 to Browns in 2007
37 Blaine Gabbert - No 1 to Jaguars in 2011

Yes his a bust, but he was not the #1 pick, he was the 10th pick. - htoutlaws2012

38 Marcell Dareus - No 3 to Bills in 2011 V 1 Comment
39 Robert Griffin III - No 2 to Redskins in 2012 Robert Griffin III - No 2 to Redskins in 2012 Robert Lee Griffin III, nicknamed RG3, is an American football quarterback for the Cleveland Browns of the National Football League.

The picture pretty much solidifies the end of RGIII before your very eyes. - htoutlaws2012

40 Daunte Culpepper - No 11 to Vikings in 1999 Daunte Culpepper - No 11 to Vikings in 1999 Daunte 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.
