    Who are the biggest 1st round busts?

    Someone mentioned David Boston getting released. I have him on a list of first round busts that I can think of others?

    Tim Couch
    Akili Smith
    Tony Mandarich
    Brian Bosworth
    Todd Marinivich
    Ryan Leaf
    Vikings I can think of
    DJ Dozier
    Demetrius Underwood
    Derrick Alexander-I think he was a 1st round pick

    It depends what you consider "busts".
    Some players are a complete bust for one team, but work out as they move on (Madarich had a few ok seasons with the colts).
    Others have 1 good season (Boston) or have several average/below average seasons (Couch).
    The real busts are the ones that you get zero return on ala Akili Smith, Charles Rogers, Ryan Leaf etc.


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.

    I guess I would say never panned out either at all or did very little with their career, maybe on Ok sesson but never anywhere near where they were expected to perform at.

    Yatil Green, David Terrell, Curtis Enis all were pretty bad. The worst ever was probably Underwood and Leaf

    I think Ryan Leaf is the biggst bust in NFL history. And always will be.
