    I also checked other top ten busts lists and
    noticed a common theme.

    At number one bust of all time, Chargers QB Ryan Leaf
    was present.

    This is not really smack because we all know Chargers
    QB Ryan Leaf is a major bust but interesting enough
    QB's dominate the list.

    On a side note: I am rooting for T. Tebow.

      I noticed the whole qb dominating the draft bust lists as well. The one I really don't agree with on the NFL list is Bosworth. While he wasn't as good as everyone thought he would be, he wasn't that bad. Heck if he hadn't of had an injury he might have stayed in the league for a while. Now don't get me wrong, I absolutely hated Bos as a person and a player, but he does not deserve to be on that list.

                You probably didn't notice that all the players on that list are retired. You'll have to wait for a new list.

                  I feel bad for Leaf, I really do. It is sad to have one be so interested and Football, but never get anywhere.

                        I think even us Denver fans felt bad about that one. I know I did.

                          No Question--Leaf by a mile, but hey the Padres might also have the biggest baseball draft bust in Matt Bush, so I guess San Diego Sports is #1 in something right?:hammer:

                            The reason I think Leaf was considered the biggest bust was because of his tirades - the locker room blow up and having to be restrained by Junior Seau - and the play of Peyton Manning. Remember the rumors that the Colts were thinking of taking Leaf over Manning?

                            When you consider all the facts about Tony Mandarich - the fact that all the experts said he was the only can't miss prospect in the 89 draft, and the Hall Of Fame talent that was selected immediately after Mandarich - Barry Sanders, Deion Sanders, Derrick Thomas - he would be my biggest bust of all time.

                              I was lucky I guess, the Leaf era was during a time in my life where I had to work out of town almost every fall weekend so I lost touch with the Chargers (no DVR back then). Darn, I missed rooting for him

                              QB is without a doubt the toughest and most crucial position on the field. That's why it's so easy to fail and fail so obviously!

                              Yeah, JaMarcus will be there soon enough
