What NFL draft pick never panned out like you thought they would??
 
I know we can all shed a tear in our beer over guys like Scott Sheilds, Walter Abercrombie, Tim Worley, Jeremy Staat, etc....but any real favorites that you pimped before a draft that never panned out??

I was really high on Rashaun Woods from Oklahoma St a few years ago and thought he would be a talented NFL WR.

I remember the name Adarius Bowman. First round WR prospect who I was hoping to pick up in the 2nd or 3rd. Now he is struggling to cut it in the CFL.

My disclaimer is that it was my first year on this board and a mock draft rookie.

Omar Jacobs and Scott Sheilds along with Kris Farris.

Some of the old-timers may remember my man-crush on Quinton Moses.

Everytime someone brings up one of the draft sleepers I liked that has panned out...I remember Moses and it keeps me humble.:doh:

Yeah, the fact that Bowman smoked more pot than Ricky Williams was pretty much his downfall.

Keep an eye out for Brandon Browner....former CB from Oregon St. He is having some success in the CFL and may get a look from NFL teams in a year.
