Predicting 1 Rookie Disappointment for Every NFL Team

All you have to do is look at recent history to find a rather depressing story in regards to college prospects being drafted in the initial couple of rounds of the NFL draft.

It really is a hit or miss when it comes to these players. While each team invests manpower and money to the scouting department, nobody has a great feel for how prospects will turn out four or five years down the road.

Let's go back to the 2009 NFL draft as a case study. By my estimations, only 18 of the top 50 picks from that season have panned out with Jason Smith, Andre Smith, Aaron Maybin and Larry English acting as the biggest first-round busts.

This is repeated every year, and 2012 promises to be no different. 

Will Brandon Weeden be an upgrade over Colt McCoy in Cleveland? Is Bobby Massie the real answer for the Arizona Cardinals' pass-protection woes?

I will answer these questions and more when drawing a conclusion about one pick from each NFL team who is sure to disappoint in 2012.
