    1999 Draft

    # Cleveland -- Tim Couch, QB, Kentucky
    # Philadelphia -- Donovan McNabb, QB, Syracuse
    # Cincinnati -- Akili Smith, QB, Oregon
    # Indianapolis -- Edgerrin James, RB, Miami
    # New Orleans -- Ricky Williams, RB, Texas
    # St. Louis -- Torry Holt, WR, NC State
    # Washington -- Champ Baily, CB, Georgia
    # Arizona -- David Boston, WR, Ohio State
    # Detroit -- Chris Claiborne, LB, USC
    # Baltimore -- Chris McAlister, CB, Arizona
    # Minnesota -- Daunte Culpepper, QB, Central Florida

    As it turns out, there was only 1(possibly 2 or 3) bust in the first 10 picks. Very unusual.

    1999 Draft

    well i see 5 busts there. Akili and couch obviously but i will call boston a bust and ricky williams too as well, had he played longer he wouldnt of been but he only put up about 2-3 good years and i call claiborne a bust too, for where he was taken he hasnt produced like his draft slot would indicate

    1999 Draft

    Couch=Bust
    Smith= Bust

    These have turned out to be the 2 biggest busts of this 1999 draft, ofcourse. Williams and Boston have drug issues....Claiborne hasn't been the same over the past 3 seasons and I can see why the Lions didnt try and keep him. James, Holt, McNabb, Culpepper, McAlister and Baily have been outstanding pros.

    Even though I had followed Pep's career in college, I remember that I was so pissed off when Baltimore took McAlister one spot before us...I really wanted us to get that dude...but NOW I wouldn't trade Pep for anyone!!!

    1999 Draft

    good luck to your boys this week btw, Im a yellow jacket fan, you guys own us in bball but its almost the opposite recently in football, i guess it balances out, even though im a gt fan i go to VT and was at the game where we beat state by one in bball and was also at the game where pace missed the field goal, both good games

    I see 4. Yes, Claiborne has not lived up to the expectations, but not a bust considering Couch and Smith in there.

    yeah thats true, i would say 4 busts with 6 hits, then you have claiborne, the 6 hits are all probowlers, thats impressive
