A lot of articles have been written about the biggest draft busts in NFL history, and you find out something new reading each one. Now, imagine writing an article about the 50 worst draft picks in NFL history. This gave me the ability to learn a lot more about some of the most enigmatic players ever to suit up on Sundays.
This article will focus on some of the worst draft picks ever made in the NFL. I will not focus solely on "busts," rather this article will take a look at teams that completely dropped the ball with their picks. I will take into account the selection made after their pick in each draft and how that impacted their placement on this list.
You will see that some of the worst "busts" in NFL history rank rather low on this list, while others who performed decently are much higher.
A Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver who had a 1,000-yard season and made a Super Bowl appearance will find himself on this list only because Jerry Rice was selected immediately after him.
It should be interesting, so let's take a gander.
