The NFL draft is a complete crapshoot.
Even if you have the number one overall pick. hi I’m pat for buzz60 Here are the 5 worst top choices in the leagues history. In 1979 the Buffalo Bills drafted linebacker Tom Cousineau first overall.
He never signed with them, choosing to go immediately to the Canadian League.
No one thought to ask, hey Tom, you want to play in the NFL right? Not all number one overall picks are busts because the player wasn’t good at football. 95’s top choice, by the Cincinnati Bengals, was running back Ki-Jana Carter who tore his acl in his first preseason game and only started 14 games in his career.
He did rush for 1,000 yards...over 7 seasons.Number 3 is a combo because the Cleveland Browns made back to back awful picks.
In 99 they took quarterback Tim Couch who over 5 years threw 12 more pics than touchdowns.
The Browns followed that up by drafting defensive lineman Courtney Brown who let’s just say didn’t pan out.
But its ok the browns are in great hands now… Defensive end Steve Emtman was number 1 in 92 to the Indianapolis Colts.
He played in only 50 games and only made 66 tackles.
But he did have a great cameo in Little Giants.(sot - little giants) ‘now remember football is 80 percent mental and 40 percent physical.’ The worst number 1 pick ever has to go to Jamarcus Russell the quarterback who went to the Oakland Raiders in 2007.
He played 3 seasons scoring 18 touchdowns and 48 turnovers all the while making about 40 million dollars.
He started off on the wrong foot when he sat out of training camp during his rookie season because he was unhappy with his contract.
Which is insane it’s like not dancing at your wedding because your first drink wasn’t strong enough.
There will be others
