    I believe he meant Derrick Alexander the DE, not the WR. We did draft him. Also, Duane Clemons. He wasn't a total bust, but he was for us.

    The other Derrick Alexander, the DE from Florida State.
    Underwood had to be the biggest bust for the Vikings.
    What a piece of crap.

    Does anybody remember Jarvis Redwine, the RB from Nebraska?
    Wasn't he a 1st rounder?
    He was a HUGE BUST!

    Re: Who are the biggest 1st round busts?

    Gotta agree with those who say that Ryan Leaf was the biggest bust in NFL history. Just think what would've happened if the Colts took him instead of Manning.. They'd be screwed. Taking Ryan Leaf set the Chargers back about 5 years, and up until 2 years ago they were the worst team in the AFC, now they're just about back where they should've been when they took Leaf.

    Be interesting to see if lightning strikes twice and Rivers is a bust too.

    (Yes, the pun was intended).

    HAHA. This is from Wikipedia:
    "However, despite his athleticism, his time as a pro was short and marked by failure, which according to critics was largely due to his immaturity, arrogance, and poor work ethic. Leaf is widely considered one of the biggest busts in NFL history."
    Anyone remember Gino Torreta? BUST!

    Torretta was a 7th round pick.
    You can't be a bust getting drafted that late.
