Ahhh..can you smell it? You smell that foul smell? It must be NFL draft week and that stench is those first round busts that are bound to happen. It'll take time to tell who earns their money and who steals owner's money. They can steal millions and not even go to jail for it. What a great deal!
These guys are the draft busts. Hyped up players who dominated in college. They were suppose to save a sagging franchise. Some were called the best ever in their position. Then for some reason or the other they lose all their football instincts once they get to the NFL. Being a bust takes hard work. It's hard to really suck so bad and pretend like you're trying to get better everyday.
Sports Illustrated has a photo montage of the biggest draft busts of the modern era. They're in no particular order because you don't see Tony Mandrich or Ryan Leaf for awhile. None of the can argue that anyone doesn't belong on this list. Joey Harrington is the most recent draft pick (2002) to make the bust list. Excellent call. For Sports Illustrated that is. Certainly not the Detroit Lions.
