Worst #13 Overall NFL Draft Picks
The Top Ten
''Eugene Chung was the first Korean-American NFL player to be drafted in the first round. That was basically the biggest accomplishment of his short career in the league.
He was taken by the Patriots in 1992 with the No. 13 overall pick. For the first two seasons of his career Chung was a regular starter for the Patriots at right guard.
Chung did not quite turn out to be the player the Pats thought they were getting. He played in only three games in 1994 and lost his starting job.'' Somewhere Kim Jong Un would want more Korean players in the NFL, NBA etc. Chung was just a laughably bad pick the Patriots rolled the dice on. I mean yeah his got the look of a guard and all, but when Korean, and jersey number 69 are in the mix I can tell this had to be a really bad joke pick that the fans. - htoutlaws2012
'' Percy Snow was drafted No. 13 overall in the 1990 NFL Draft, one year and eight spots before Harvey Williams was drafted out of LSU.
Snow also had a great rookie season for the Kansas City Chiefs in 1990. Fourteen starts, two sacks and an interception were the notable statistical achievements of Snow's rookie season.
Unfortunately, Snow's career was cut short during the 1991 off season.
While at River Falls, WI, for the Kansas City Chiefs training camp, Percy Snow injured his knee in a moped accident. He sat out the 1991 NFL season on injured reserve and frankly was never the same player. He would only make 15 total starts in his NFL career.'' This is like talking about guys like RG3 for example a guy who showed great promise, but due to an injury the decline begins, and that's what happened here with Snow only much much worse with no progression shown not much as the writer is saying. - htoutlaws2012
Even if the accident had never occurred Miami really did not get much outta this pick like remotely. Picked in the 81' draft didn't play went to CFL for a couple of years then came back only for his time to be cut short, but in that based off the stats would not have been much of a change in my view. - htoutlaws2012
No I don't mean the Packers Receiver whose currently working for NFL Network oh no. This James Jones was a fullback taken in the 83' draft as the Lions like other teams passed on a heavy loaded quarterback class, and instead take who I believe in terms of position the worst option to go with. While he was not a bad player per say to take a full back in the first round was unheard of at that time. - htoutlaws2012
''Scott was drafted in the first round with the 13th overall pick so he didn't have the weight of the world on his shoulders to be a "game changing" player. But as a first-rounder he still needed to play great. Instead, he played for four seasons, totaled 69 receptions, had 864 yards receiving and caught only one touch down.
The former Georgia Bulldog receiver would leave the NFL in 1985 when even the Chargers wouldn't pick him up to play.'' Another Saint who didn't live up to exceptionally well promise from Georgia. We've come far for guys like Sony Michael, and Nick Chubb to have some success for now, but in this time for a running back you had to be consistently great if you wanted to stay in the strike they had that was infamous. Scott was in an organization early on was still young, but were not sure what they were doing at the time. - htoutlaws2012
''The drafting of Leon Burns was pretty controversial when it happened... and the move pretty much blew up in the Chargers' faces.'' It really did it isn't noted its search deep into the internet, but Burns had a history of doing reckless stuff off the field, and in 84' some guy took his life after his one season with the teams another underrated bust overlooked before obvious choices. - htoutlaws2012
'' The Saints have the 13th overall pick in the draft and use it on Rick Middleton of the Ohio State University, hoping to get a linebacker with starter potential and help improve their defense. What they got instead was...Rick Middleton.
Middleton played a grand total of five seasons in the NFL and only two of those were with the Saints. Middleton didn't have much in the way of stats, although this was before tackles were counted as a stat. It's obvious that Middleton could not adjust to the pro level and ultimately washed out of the NFL.'' - htoutlaws2012
This is where devil's advocate would not have consider a life taken too soon, but in your three season with the Giants however with just five fumbles regardless that does give me the idea where it would led if not the sad tragedy of a car crash at training camp no less. - htoutlaws2012
''Carriker slotted right in, starting all 16 games as a rookie with mostly blah results. Carriker was strong enough to play the run at the dreaded "good enough" level, but he looked lost as a pass rusher. So what's the big deal? Well, first round three-technique tackles are supposed to be pass rushers. Besides, it's not like Carriker's run defense was good enough to prevent the Rams from being one of the league's worst teams against the run, though he had help with the decaying lineup around him.
Through his two seasons, the Nebraska product has a whopping two sacks. Two sacks. He lost his starting job during training camp in 2009, replaced by Gary Gibson, before an injury shut him down for the entire 2009 season.'' That draft was loaded with great talent, but unfortunately Rams once again could not yet retool that defensive line well enough to go back into contention in the later end of the 2000's decade was a dark period for the fans knowing how terrible they were. - htoutlaws2012
''The Steelers were hopeful that Edwards would blossom into the true No. 1 receiver the team had felt it was lacking. Unfortunately, Edwards never became that player.
He was used as the team's primary receiver and also as a returner, but he never had that big breakout season. His best year in Pittsburgh was actually his first, when he caught five touchdowns and amassed 714 receiving yards. He never scored another touchdown in that uniform and was gone after the 2001 season.
He moved on to St. Louis, Jacksonville and Detroit and was never effective. By the end of the 2005 season, he was out of the league.'' Seeing he was way too short of a wide receiver this is an immediate red flag if I was a scouting expert not to take so high, but then again not many short wide receivers have been that successful in the NFL that I could recall. - htoutlaws2012
