    According to Bleacher Report

    A lot of articles have been written about the biggest draft busts in NFL history, and you find out something new reading each one. Now, imagine writing an article about the 50 worst draft picks in NFL history. This gave me the ability to learn a lot more about some of the most enigmatic players ever to suit up on Sundays.

    Yeah, Leaf was worse than Mandarich, but being a Packer fan it was fun to watch Leaf implode while it was not quite as fun Mandarich make an ass out of himself.....lol.:peace::peace::peace:

    No Ted Ginn Jr. either. You all have watched the draft, they show the fans reactions at that teams facilities after the pick is announced, when Ginn was picked I have never seen the fans get that irate. A KR in the first round was stupid.

    Another one is Ricky Williams. The Saints recovered alot faster than they should have after Ditka convinced upper management to roll the dice and trade away a few years worth of picks to take him, and he never did amount to much. Then came the retirement fiasco with him and then they just got rid of him all together, horrible pick.

    Leaf has always been the pat answer but I think he's been replaced by JaMarcus Russell. Russell was the #1 overall pick, Leaf was #2 behind Peyton. Russell played 3 years in the league. I think Leaf managed to stick around for 4. And finally Russell got a $68M contract with $31.5 guaranteed.

    Yeah, j Russell was a complete bust. What surprised me was that Maurice Claret was on this list. Third round pick, minimal contract. Plenty of teams have had third rounders never pan out. It appears to me that this list was conceived more by emotion than logic, IMHO.
