    That's the first name I thought of when I saw the title of the article.

    Wow, no Troy?

    Still say that missing on Troy and EJ in one year should almost be considered a sin. :'(
    EJ was at least did his job when healthy, it's a shame his knees couldn't hold up
    I hear ya, however, doesn't the fact that he couldn't stay healthy also equate to a bad pick?
    I mean, sure, you can't figure out if a guy is gonna be injured his whole career, but damn we do have a medical staff that should help in that analysis right?


    There are also concerns about his durability. He battled injuries at Wisconsin, missing the entire 2003 season with a hip injury

    Projection:

    If post-season workouts and physicals don't reveal any problems or long-term concerns associated with his hip injury, Erasmus James should be selected in the first half of the first-round of the 2005 NFL Draft.

    It's missing Curtis Enis and Troy Williamson.

    Re: 10-Pack: Ten biggest first-round draft busts of the last 20 years.

    Yep, i dont consider EJ in this bust category.
    I mean at 18 or wherever we picked him, we were merely going for value.
    Before the injuries, he was easily a top 10 pick, so by him dropping we did nothing wrong in taking a shot on some big time potential.
    Loved the pick then, don't love it now but its understandable.

    The list is pretty accurate. No way Troy should even be spoke upon those men
    We're bringing purple back.

    Aah, what an honor. Nr. 1.

    They're right though, Leaf and Mandarich are innerchangable(sp?) on the number 1 and 2 spots.

    There's one guy I'm missing though... a Viking. I guess it has something to do with the fact that he was a late roun draft pick and this list doesn't go higher than Pick nr. 6. Dimitrius Underwood would've fitted in nicely on this list though.
    I can't belive you don't know how to spell the greatest Draft pick in Packer history!. all you had to do was look in your closet and pull out his old jersey.
    ;D

    A couple of names that surprised me that were and were not on the list. Pacman Jones. Nott sure I would consider him a bust as there were issues before he was even drafted. He was hyped but not to that extent like others on the list. Mike william salthough a bust seems too high on the list.


    One name not on thist that should be
    on the list but is not because he was in the supplemetal draft is Brian Bosworth.

    I would put Tim Couch,
    and Curtis Enis(The Bears took him over Moss)
    Tim Couch should EASILY be in that list.

    I had to go back and see when Bosworth was drafted, because I was thinking the same thing.
    For sure Couch should be there!
    I would also add the other Mike Williams (WR) drafted 10th overall by the Lions and since he was picked 3 slots [glow=red,2,300]later[/glow] than T Will I agree that Troy should be there too.
