    Re: Top draft busts of the last 20 years

    This list seems a little odd to me. Tim Couch might not have been productive, but more of a bust than Akili Smith? Cade McNown? I don't know, those guys were both top 10 picks as well. Also, Rick Mirer did have a solid rookie year and stuck around as a back up for a long time. Same with Tony Mandarich who still had a long and somewhat productive career. I mean while these guys are well known as "busts" ... what about Charles Rogers, Peter Warrick, Courtney Brown, David Terrell, Blair Thomas, Dan McGwire, Todd Marinovich and Ki-Jana Carter? All of these guys had shorter, less productive careers than Couch, Mirer and Mandarich.
    These lists always disappoint me because they are so "recycled" just people saying the same guys over and over again instead of remembering the Dan McGwire's of the world.

    I'm not sure about that one....I think he might have just been a victim of a bad system.
    Do you mean two bad systems?
    Make that 3 (lions, dolphins, and falcons).
