Browns QB Tim Couch Getting Hammered
5. Quarterback Tim Couch (First Pick Overall, 1999 Cleveland Browns)
Like every other bust mentioned on this list, Couch was a star quarterback in his college days. After deciding not to pick Donovan McNabb, the Browns were debating whether to take Couch or Akili Smith. Although McNabb is on the decline, he is 10 times better than the other two quarterbacks.
If the Browns made the right choice and selected McNabb, they would be in playoff contention consistently, even if McNabb isn't as good as he used to be. The Browns still have problems at the quarterback position and need to draft Robert Griffin III or else they will have made another bad quarterback draft choice.
Couch had a rough beginning for the Browns but got them into playoff contention for a season. However, Couch got wrecked with injuries and was later outplayed by backup QB Kelly Holcomb.
