    [size=12pt]The “Unlucky” 13—Picks that never lived up to their potential due to extenuating circumstances. [/size]

    3.
    Michael Vick









    QB








    Atlanta Falcons



    1 overall (1st round) 2001
    In the five years Vick played in Atlanta, he revitalized a struggling franchise and became one of the most popular players in the NFL.
    But there was still so much more left to accomplish.
    There’s been enough dog-fighting jokes made, so I’ll take the high road here.
    Since when does being dumb enough to get involved in dog-fighting get classed as extenuating circumstances?

    oh people are going to eat this up...

    Moss is certain to go down as one of the top five wideouts of all-time, if not the best.

    28. Matt Birk











    C



    Minnesota Vikings







    173 overall (6th round) 1998
    Birk may not be the smartest guy out there, but he makes up for his embarrassing lack of general knowledge with raw strength and technique.
    He slid on the draft board for two reasons:
    1. Teams are reluctant to use a first-day pick on a center and 2.
    Teams are reluctant to draft a player with such immense off-the-field problems.
    Luckily for the Vikings, Birk was able to put his shoddy past behind him and become a six-time Pro Bowler.
    ???
    This has to be sarcasm.

    1.
    Tom Brady










    QB


    New England Patriots










    199 overall (6th round) 2000
    What is there to say?
    Brady is not only the top pick of the last ten years, but arguably the best draft choice in the history of any sport.
    I’ll just leave you with the list of quarterbacks selected ahead of Brady in this draft:
    Chad Pennington, Giovanni Carmazzi, Chris Redman, Tee Martin, Marc Bulger, and Spergon Wynn.
    Awsome...that just made my day. :'(
    Rock out with your cock out!!!

    Surprised Ki-Jana Carter wasn't mentioned, I personally thought he was gonna be good when the Bengals drafted him #1 overall in 95' and turned out to be just a GIGANTIC bust...but yeah like the Birk sarcasm tho!

    That is a really good read. I am guessing saying Birk is not the smartest was some sarcasm for those who know he went to Harvard.
