Worst #20 Overall NFL Draft Picks
The Top Ten
''What the Colts failed to address was Jim's injury history and the fact that he tore his ACL in 1965, just two years prior to this draft. His knee never recovered fully and he spent his final season at Michigan fighting through the pain on a daily basis.
By the time he got to the NFL, it was too late. His knee was shot and he continued to struggle until he was forced to have more surgeries to repair it until he finally retired without ever playing a single down in the NFL.'' By the time he did make it he never recovered with his injury in college thus the biggest bust at the 20 selection even back in the almost late 60's NFL that's a major disappointment. - htoutlaws2012
Pritchett was to play for the Dallas Cowboys, but like the Colts getting screwed outta almost having John Elway Kelvin Pritchett basically got traded and sold him off to the Lions where he played both times, and this was a notable draft bust in Cowboys history knowing the rejection from Jerry Jones one of the few players to have done duked. - htoutlaws2012
Gallagher was selected by the Bears in the 74' draft and played just a a single season with the team as their interior tackle. The only stat recorded for Gallagher was picking up a fumble recovery, other than that a forgotten Bears bust of the 70's that went like a lightning blot striking a young bear and let him grow big as a Giant the irony of this. - htoutlaws2012
Sims got drafted by the steelers, and like many others was very short lived time with the teams, and faded quickly and wrapping up with a whopping 1 fumble recovery. - htoutlaws2012
There are two different Mike Taylor's in the NFL, one was to protect Terry Bradshaw, and the other was a failed to get at the opposing quarterback. In his short time with the Jets he was almost 53% in those 2 seasons in as a starter, and racked up 1 interception for his awful troubles. - htoutlaws2012
''Novak, drafted by the Colts in ’76.
He played college ball at Purdue and in two seasons he played in two games. The only stats to his name are two fumble recoveries, one in ’76 and another in ’77. Novak had a laughably short NFL career and left little to no impact on the league and his team.'' Colts didn't have that many early busts, but Novak ended up being their earliest prized possession gone opposite. - htoutlaws2012
Faumunia had on starting season out of five with Atlanta in that time only racked up a pathetic 3 fumble recoveries, and managed to somehow get one interception as a defensive interior player who was hardly used as their first rounder. - htoutlaws2012
A very notorious Lions bust for being one pick above Randy Moss who the Vikings stole away a half of fame Wide receiver meanwhile the Lions drafted a corner who did knowing until the end if his Lions tenure with only 7 interceptions, and one sack a waste of a pick. - htoutlaws2012
Back in the early 2000's The Lions were one of the few teams of that decade to have an atrocious O-Line for a long decade. With drafted Aaron Gibson the previous year They wanted to have another behemoth on the other end of the tackle line. The two together you argue were massive busts for sloppy blocking alone. His career came to and end after a battery charge in 2007. - htoutlaws2012
While his blocking is a exception overtime he could could not consistently catch the ball well enough, and like other Tight Ends Stafford has had over the years strangely he can't have one really good one over the years since Pettigrew from the very beginning. - htoutlaws2012
