    The '99 draft QB class as a whole should really be considered a bust based on the hype surrounding Couch-McNabb-Smith-McNown. I can't remember for sure, but I feel like Culpepper at 11 was sort of out of left field and he looked to be by far and away the cream of the crop until he blew out his knee five years ago and ended his career.

    Well, I suppose that's the Law of Averages for ya. For all the glamor of the QB class of '83, there had to be an equally unglamorous outing somewhere.

    I was gonna actually go with Enis, but when you think of RBs, Neal Anderson and obviously Payton, fans can remember...most fans don't know who Sid Luckman is, and that's all we've had haha.

    Biggest bust of ALL time? Well, maybe, still to early to tell. Poster boy for the rookie salary problem? Definitely! Put JaMarshmallow next to Chris Johnson and you get a pretty good picture of what the league and the NFLPA need to get fixed in the next CBA. Maybe Johnson should head down to Alabama and collect about $15 Million from Russell just to even things up.

    Ahh Cade was A HUGE bust.

    I agree with mattpett completely. Leaf was the biggest meltdown easily of all time.

    Until now Leaf was the biggest bust. The thing is, Leaf at least tried to be an NFL QB. JaMarcus never even tried. He collected his big payday and then sat on the couch eating cheetos. He was the last to arrive at practice and the first to leave.

    Leaf was the number 2 pick, JaMarcus was #1. I have to go with JaMarcus as the biggest bust and that really disappoints me. I thought he looked like a star coming out of college.
