    The draft is never 100%; there are always busts. Who from the first three rounds so far is a bust just waiting to happen?

    Tim Tebow.

    He may be a bonafide nice guy and a heck of a competitor, but he seems like a reach as a 1st Round QB. Even if he eventually becomes a legitimate NFL starting QB, it will be so far down the road and at such an expense due to his 1st Round contract that I think it will be considered a bad pick, and that isn't even weighing in the picks they gave up to move up to take him.

    Gotta go with the obvious - Rams #1 overall pick Sam Bradford has the biggest bust potential .... Really good college QB but the Rams dont have a whole lot of talent around him and can he take the beating that is the NFL?
    Im sure that shoulder will be tested early and often if they start him from game one.

    I have to agree with you, as well. If I was the Rams GM I would have picked Suh over Bradford. He is as close to a sure thing as I have ever seen. He may not dominate in the NFL like he did in College, but I would be shocked if he wasn't a solid contributor for years to come, and the Rams need that badly.

    Hindsight is 20/20, but i think the Rams would have been better off taking Suh and then Clausen in the second round.

    Colt McCoy! The Browns messed up at QB again. Think they'll ever get it right?

    I see our DT busting. I hope not, and I really do wish him all the best, but I just have a bad, bad feeling about the guy.

    JPP most likely as well.

    I'm going to say Demaryius Thomas turns out to be a bust.

    You know, I would have probably agreed with you before the draft. But now that its almost over, I have to say I finally have hope for my team this season. I've been embarrassed about myself being a fan of the Oakland Raiders for the past 7 years, but I truly feel they are turning it around this season. We are making picks that make sense! Many people thought we were going to f#$k up again this year and get someone like Bruce Campbell in the 1st, instead we got a beast that is McClain and still got Campbell...but in the 4th.

    Are we going to win the SuperBowl? No
    Are we on our way to become a respectable organization again? I believe so

    He will produce well beyond the 3rd round pick they used to take him.

    I really think in the right system that Jason Campbell will do just fine. He got beat up last year. I think that's a great trade for the Raiders.

    I love your draft. I think the Raiders made a killing.

    I think the Raiders did a good job as well. What happened? Someone slip some Xanax in dead man's drink? :lightbulb:

    I think someone told him the draft was next Saturday and Sunday and made the picks for him.
