Tony Mandarich was on the cover of Sports Illustrated in 1989 and was considered "the best offensive line prospect ever."
Even though that was the case, he turned out to be one of the biggest busts in NFL history and was ranked as the second-biggest bust all time on NFL.com.
Mandarich had a lengthy holdout to begin his career and was only ready about a week before the season began. He only lasted three seasons with the Packers before he was released.
The worst thing about this pick was the amount of talent and excitement that was behind Mandarich in the draft. Standouts such as Barry Sanders and Deion Sanders were available and would have been huge assets to the team, as well as fan favorites.
Barry Sanders would have been a better selection for Green Bay, as the team desperately needed a running game. Their leading rusher in 1988 was Brent Fullwood, with 483 yards. Selecting an electric running back such as Barry Sanders would have a great piece to build around to get the then-struggling Packers back on their feet.
Interesting fact about Mandarich; he was the only player drafted in the top five in the 1989 draft to not be elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
