I think that is accurate. I'd only call 4 of the past 16 busts.
EJ Manuel - too soon to judge and taken much lower than usual
Sam Bradford - disappointing to date
JaMarcus Russell - bust
Vince Young - bust
Alex Smith - underwhelming
Carson Palmer - never the same after injury but not a bad pick
David Carr - bust
Chad Pennington - 1st taken but bottom half of 1st round.
Tim Couch - bust
