We’re big fans of the NFL Draft here at Goliath and for all the right reasons; we love the showmanship, the drama, and the look on the players’ faces when they’ve been drafted into the league they’ve aspired towards most of their lives. Now, we know that not all of those players will go on to have long and fruitful careers; there’s been many a player drafted into the NFL who failed to live up to expectations. We call those players “busts,” and with NFL season in full swing we’ve decided to take a look back at some of the most disappointing players in NFL history. We’ll look at why they were drafted so highly, who drafted them and why, and what went wrong in their careers to land them a spot on this list.
