Throughout the NFL's history, the receiver position has seemed to be one of the hardest positions to scout. No matter if they are in the top 10 or the top 50, receivers can easily bust or reach greatness.
The WR is one of the biggest gambles in the draft, but once in a while you might find a gem.
Here are the top 10 receiver busts of the last 20 years, starting at No. 10.
He was supposed to be a first round selection in the 2006 NFL draft. He fell into the second round, going to the New England Patriots. Great find, and you know he had to have some talent to make it onto a Bill Belichick team, right? Wrong.
This guy has never had more than 13 catches in a season. He eventually moved to the Denver Broncos, with two of the best passing attacks in the league. Yet he had no impact.
What happened to this guy?!
The 49ers needed a receiver to replace the legendary Terrell Owens, and they hoped that Woods would be that guy. They even gave him T.O.'s No. 81 jersey. Too bad it didn't help.
It's too bad this guy didn't make it in the league—he didn't even make it in the CFL. He was cut twice.
The former Heisman Trophy winner was always a good return man, but never a good receiver. He had success in the league, just not as a receiver. He never lived up to the pressure as a first round pick and Heisman Trophy winner.
Can a receiver be too big to be a good receiver? The answer is yes, and Williams proves it.
He was never fast enough to break away from defenders and wasn't strong enough to survive the jam. He was massive at 6'4" and was just too big and slow to make it. His 2007 TD total was great at 10, but with only 629 yards.
He is now a free agent but cannot find a suitor.
David Terrell came from the University of Michigan. He had it all: size, speed, and a love for the game. Too bad it just didn't transfer to the pros.
He enjoyed some mild success, but nothing to justify taking him eighth overall in the 2001 draft.
Morgan was a very high second round draft pick. He had some success in the NFL, leading the Browns in receiving yards and earning a playoff berth with the team during the 2002 season. He then faded out of football in the following years.
People may ask why he is on this list. He made it for being such a high draft pick and never panning out. The Browns could have selected other Pro Bowl players like T.J. Houshmandzadeh, Chad Ochocinco, and Steve Smith the same year as Morgan.
The 1998 Biletnikoff award winner, he was supposed to be a superstar. He turned out to be super average.
He played in the league for five teams before finally getting cut. Over the course of his career, he has never come even remotely close to his college stats.
Coming out of college, he was labeled as a can't miss. Well, he couldn't catch either.
He was supposed to be the next great receiver in the league but ended up being the next great flop. He had some success with a couple of 800-yard years, but now he can't even make it in the CFL or Arena 2 league.
Williamson was the replacement for Randy Moss. I guess it's safe to say that he fell short of those expectations.
He never posted more than 450 yards in one season and never had more than two TDs. He had great speed and still does. He could have been great if it weren't for his hands of stone.
Another possible WR selection that year could have been Roddy White.
Probably the biggest bust in the last 10 years.
Rogers had everything you look for in a receiver: great speed, great height, and very soft hands. Too bad this guy just didn't even try. If he had the proper motivation, he would be one of the top wideouts in the league.
He only lasted two years in the league, and both of those were marred by injuries and drug problems.
