Re: Most Likely First Round Bust

This was a good first round. Honestly as bad they claim this draft class is I only see a handful of bust.

1. Derrius Heyward-Bey - Didn't put up good numbers in college due to weak QB play and now goes to a team with even weaker QB play. Basically in my mind there are two types of recievers, guys that need a QB and guys that can succed with a RB under center (VERY RARE). Heyward-Bey is sure as hell not the latter.

2. Josh Freeman - Another guy with a big arm. Whoop dee doo. He'll just be average, nothing special.

3. Percy Harvin - Good chance he'll fail and to be honest I kind of want him to.

4. Hakeem Nicks/Kenny Britt - Really? Boldin and Edwards available for that pick and you come away with guys that might develop into #2's? In all fairness though to the Titans the Cardinals didn't return their phone calls.

Plus he catches the ball with his hands. He'll do just fine in Philly. Bey is a different story. I can not believe he got drafted so high. I'm actually shocked. I follow MD. football and he's got a long long way to go.
I didn't say that Maclin stinks!!! Its just 60% of the time Westbrook has the ball. DeSean Jackson is slowly getting his touches, then you have Curtis, Baskett, Avant, Brown and then the newly drafted TE, where does Maclin fit in? He'll be a "bust" due to limited play, not from lack of skill.

Re: Most Likely First Round Bust

Percy Harvin is another player from this area. Loads of talent. Between injuries and his propensity to get high, I could see him being a bust. I hate to see him follow the path of other Tidewater area players such as Vick and Burress, but apparently he also lives in a different world and thinks he is above the rules.

Re: Most Likely First Round Bust

I feel Sanchez is overrated, his arm isnt gonna scare anyone. BUT neither did Montana's, but I really doubt Sanchez is anywhere near as smart and accurate as Montana was.

But Ill go with Maclin and Wells, neither will hold up against NFL'ers.

I don't know, the games I saw he seemed to be running everything. I mean you don't catch 100 balls in Div 1 football and not have some seriosu talent. Now I know the Big 12 isn't the SEC but that's still serious production.

Re: Most Likely First Round Bust

I'm going with BJ Raji. Top college DT's seem to bust quite a bit or be ho-hum type of players once they get to the NFL.

Re: Most Likely First Round Bust

I'm going with Mark Sanchez. I don't think he had enough college experience to become a good NFL QB.

Re: Most Likely First Round Bust

Here are my likely busts:
1) Sanchez - way overhyped, won't come anywhere close to expectations. LA & NY are two different animals. It'll be interesting to see how he responds when the weather gets bad, he's playing a tough D, he makes a mistake or two and the fans start to boo. He'll be wishing he stayed in the warm sunshine of USC and my guess is he won't respond very well at all.

2) Andre Smith - He'll be pushing 4-bills and be involved in off-field incidents.

3) Heyward-Bey - How can anyone be successful with the Raiders?

4) Larry English - Numbers are inflated from weak competition, will be a back-up, nothing more. Injuries will likely be an issue.

5) Percy Harvin - coached against him at HS level, never seen anyone so fast in person. However, questionable hands, route running suspect, off-field issues probable, injuries probable. Didn't return kicks or punts at UF. Will struggle when he can't outrun everyone at the NFL level.

Re: Most Likely First Round Bust

I think Matthew Stafford is gonna get killed in Detroit. He's my bust pick.

I heard that too. What did JLC say, he thought Orakpo would end up as an average player at best. Part of me gets slightly worried when I hear that sort of thing but then I remember the source.

Re: Most Likely First Round Bust

^Seriously, Jason La Confora is so annoying. Larry Michael used to make my skin crawl but now I find him refreshing after hearing the negative BS pumped out by JLC. No matter what pick we would have made, he would have taken the opposite stance.

If we would ahve drafted lineman late, he would have said "How are you going to get anything out of a 6th rounder? What a waste."

I hope he gets a chance to interview Orakpo and he shits his pants witnessing such a physical specimen.

Re: Most Likely First Round Bust

And if we passed on Orakpo I can only imagine JLC ranting on how we yet again ignored the DL and missed the chance to have a quality pass rush threat.
