Who’s Gonna Be a Bust?
If history proves itself and the top 2 draft pics end up being quarterbacks then either Andrew Luck or Robert Griffin III will have a lack luster NFL career.
- In 1993, Drew Bledsoe was taken number one by the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks used the number two pick on Rick Mirer. Bledsoe succeeded. Mirer tanked.
- In 1998, it was the famous Peyton Manning - Ryan Leaf draft. Manning became one of the greatest quarterbacks in history. Leaf became known as one of the biggest busts in league history.
- In 1999, Tim Couch was made the top overall pick by Cleveland. His career sputtered. But the number two pick that year was Donovan McNabb, who had a great career.
The 2012 NFL Draft kicks off this Thursday April 26th at 5pm.
