Worst #19 Overall NFL Draft Picks
The Top Ten
''Ravens drafted Kyle Boller with such a high pick, they surely had visions of him making their offense as potent as their defense.
Those visions only lasted for three seasons before Boller was replaced by Steve McNair in 2006. Boller never became the type of quarterback that could effectively move the ball down the field. Heck, Boller had difficulties keeping the ball in his team's hands.'' One of the few picks Baltimore was highly wrong at actually taking a quarterback rarely in the 1st round, and he rarely was a starter in his brief time with the Ravens. - htoutlaws2012
''Drafted 19th overall by the G-Men, he played from the get-go, lining up in all 16 regular season games throughout New York's run to Super Bowl XXI.
It all went south from there though, as Dorsey recorded a paltry seven sacks over the next six seasons. Despite retiring as a two-time NFL champ, Dorsey certainly didn't validate his first-round status.'' - htoutlaws2012
''Many of you probably don't remember much about the Kansas City Chiefs' 1987 first round draft pick RB Paul Palmer. That's mostly a combination of his short career, the general terribleness of the Chiefs in the 1980s and the fact that he was quickly overshadowed by other draft picks made during that time.
The Chiefs selected Palmer with the No. 19 overall pick in 1987. He had led the NCAA in rushing the year before at Temple, despite only being 5'9" and 185 pounds. Palmer was also a strong kick returner that the Chiefs essentially tried to make into more of a full-time running back. It was an experiment that failed.'' The Nigerian nightmare took over his carrying duties, and was a powerhouse in the running game meanwhile Palmer was a costly mistake. - htoutlaws2012
Another rare bust pick fro an organization that rarely misses in the 1st round more less much needed protection from the right tackle Jeff Otah could not be accounted for, and it seems like since drafting him that O-line has never been much better. - htoutlaws2012
Originally drafted to be a Guard Erving didn't live up to his top 20 pick by the Browns. He was to supposedly protect Manizel and or McCown, and even block for great running room for Isaiah Crowell. Eventually they moved him to Center still didn't do a good job, but to be fair he did play slightly better it was more less the quarterback who could not figure out the system in johnny football. If I were the Chiefs it would not hurt to get a long terms replacement seeing Erving may crack again before you know it. - htoutlaws2012
''Clark was a classic tweener as a defensive back. He didn't have the ability to play man-to-man coverage in the NFL and he lacked the size and tackling skills to be a top safety.
Clark lasted just two seasons in Green Bay, alternating between the two positions. He played in all 32 games during those two campaigns but started just 15 of them.
Clark intercepted two passes each year he was in Green Bay and returned one punt.
By 1993, Clark was no longer a Packer. He lasted four more seasons in the NFL, playing for three other teams and was out of the NFL entirely by 1997.'' Once again like many other Packer first rounder of the 90's Clark just faded away. - htoutlaws2012
''We are going to say this again at some point in this article but NFL scouts sometimes miss the biggest red flags because of a team need at a certain position. They somehow completely ignored his career record of 19-19, his 46.4% career completion percentage, or even the fact that he threw 23 touchdowns but had 22 interceptions.
There was nothing about his production at Missouri that screamed future heir apparent to Jim Hart.'' - htoutlaws2012
Barron was a guy who was a offensive tackle who moved from left and right (most notably right). Barron would end up committing costly penalties on one of the worst O-lines n football and that is the Rams who selected him. - htoutlaws2012
McClellin never ascended into an elite linebacker next to Lance Briggs that linebacking core got busted up, and then Bears went into the dark ages in the early 2010s. - htoutlaws2012
While he may have been a tackling beast he could of been a lot more in his four years with Atlanta in just a short amount of time. - htoutlaws2012
