Bo is hard to peg since he played two sports. I moved him a couple of times before just dropping him in bust. I would agree, though, that he could be considered a success.

Check Ricky's stats - I think you have to consider him a success, despite his weirdness. Sitting out a year doesn't help, and that assessment could change a few years down the road.

Vinny has 45,000 passing yards and 270 TDs over an 18 year career - that's a success any way you slice it.

Herschel had three good years at the beginning of his career, but didn't really do squat afterward. He wasn't a complete bust, but I'm not sure I would categorize him as a success.

There should probably be three categories - those who did very well, those who did fine, and those who were complete busts.

Not sure, but that's the back he was referring to.
