Where is Tim Couch on that list???

Yikes! three Penn State running backs on that list.

Another name they should add is Tim "worthless" Worley.

Tim Couch.........good call, he could easily be on that list along with a few other former Browns. Three Bengals make the list. I would rip there Front Office but three of my favorite PSU running backs made it. I cant believe they all stunk in the NFL.......

Yes the Boz was No. 1, but I do feel mandarich was the biggest bust, he was promoted as a Can`t Miss. Also one i just thought of was Todd Marinacich, the USC weirdo.

Todd marinovich or however you spell his name.. he was a touted as a beast too, that totally flopped.

but man, how much bigger of a flop can u find, then Ryan Leaf!!

What SI doesn't say about Bosworth was that he was all steroids. He has a size 9 shoe, and now weighs 165 lbs.

My food for thought, is where is SI or ESPN in saying, yes we hyped "insert bust name here" so much before the draft, and man where we wrong! No it is just they never did their part or they fell flat. Take some credit. You were part of the problem too.

Great point Chef!

And Hardwork you are correct, Boz even missed his final college,bowl game over a steroid suspension.

Heres one we forgot, I just read this in the Pittsburgh Gazette:

Unlucky in pro football, lucky in life. That's a second line that should be added to the nondescript one-line summation of Huey Richardson's NFL career: Two years, three teams, 16 games played, no statistics.


Ist round pick, NO tackles??

As much as we will remember names like Bradshaw, Lambert, Swann, etc. We will also remember Richardson. Never did we bust like that before!

What about Jon Reinstra? An animal in practice but couldn`t play a lick, then he left us and went to the Stains and admitted to having a mental problem where he was afraid to leave the house. Not to make fun of mental problems , but this guy was 300+ lbs of muscle, don`t be afraid. But nevertheless, another wasted 1st rounder.
