NFL: 50 Rookies Sure to Flame Out Within the Next 5 Years

Let's face reality. A large number of NFL draft picks end up being busts. This is a major reason why roster turnover is as great as it is in the league.

The 2012 draft is going to be no different.

There are going to be a great deal of players that don't live up to their early-draft status. You are going to see top-10 picks fizzle out within a matter of a couple of years. You are also going to see general managers fired because of it. 

The selection of players such as Bruce Irvin and Brandon Weeden in the first round last month was cause for alarm around Radio City Music Hall.

This article is going to focus on those two players, as well as 48 others that I believe will flame out in the National Football League over the course of the next few seasons.
