    Hey Everyone,


    It's almost that time for the 2012 NFL Draft. During this time we will finally found out which player will go to each team. But once, that's decided we are hoping that the rookies can help bring teams to the playoffs and then the Superbowl.

    In the meantime, ever sat back and wonder what a previous NFL Draft stats were like once they entered the NFL? Some of their stats are impressive, while the other ones are just disappointing.

    For example, Rashaun Woods (wide receiver) was the 31st overall pick in the 2004 draft. And in his rookie season he only makes seven catches. And, David Carr is a (quarterback) and was the #1 overall pick in 2002, and he didn't win a series in five years, and then sacked in the NFL three of those five years.

    Bleacher Report and their analyst gives their input on who they think is the biggest NFL Draft busts in the past decade.

    Here are my top 5:

    1. JaMarcus Russel
    2. Charles Rogers
    3. Vernon Gholston: workout warrior whose skills in bench pressing never led to the football field.
    4. Mike Williams. He sued the NFL along with Clarett and lost. He sat out a year, was drafted at 10, and then bombed in Detroit. Had 1 nice year with his third team, but was a complete draft bust for the Lions.
    5. Matt Jones. Jags thought they had a steal when they drafted the 6'6 QB and converted him to a WR. Arrests, substance abuse, and just an overall lack of skills led to his downfall.

    Jamarcus Russell is the obvious #1 but I think Aaron Curry should be in the conversation for top 3. I remember him being called the safest pick ever, can't miss, sure thing, probowler for the next ten years. 2 years later he gets traded for a 7th. You never can tell.

    Why don't you participate in the conversation instead of posting a link to a BR video every single post you make? Oh, that's right, it's because you're only here trying to get clicks.
