    Biggest Non-QB Draft Busts

    Wondering about some of the other positions where there were can't miss prospects that became draft busts. Some of the ones I can remember.

    O-Line: Tony Mandarich, Robert Gallery
    WR-Charles Rodgers, Peter Warrick
    RB-Ki-Jana Carter, Curtis Ennis
    DE-Andre Wadsworth

    Re: Biggest Non-QB Draft Busts

    while he has had a productive career, I think Reggie Bush could fall into this category just based on the hype surrounding him coming in, he wasnt really ever to do those things in the nfl that made him so successful in college. Looks like the texans made the right choice in him and VYoung.

    Ricky Williams could maybe be on the list, had a long career, but not quite what was expected.

    He is one of 26 players to top 10,000 career rushing yards. Maybe didn't have the career he could have but definitely not a bust.

    And he took a beating doing it.
    If you take away his sabattical years, he's at 13,000 yards.

    Reggie could have been a way bigger bust.

    Re: Biggest Non-QB Draft Busts

    Mike Williams (USC WR). Outstanding college WR, averaged 15 TD's a year, he has a body very close to Calvin Johnson. Averaging 1 TD a year since being in the NFL since 2005. Pathetic.

    Maurice Clarett debacle comes to mind.

    Re: Biggest Non-QB Draft Busts

    Funny how many names I come with that are QBs. I bet there are more QB "busts" than all others combined. Leaf, Marinovich, Long, Leinart off the top of my head.
