My picks

Weeden

Blackmon

AJ Jenkins

Coples

Poe

What? Is this just because you think he's going to bust or because of his injury?

i dont think you can say blackmon is a bust. I mean look what happen when he finally got the ball. gabbert is a terrible qb period.

both he's injury prone and he doesn't have elite talent to be drafted high at 17.

Not sure about Blackmon anymore. He had a monster game with good QB play for once.

AJ Jenkins

Coples

Kirkpatrick

Floyd

Poe

Blackman got over 200 yards receiving in one game a week or two ago. If he has a good QB and a decent offense around him he's fine. Not sure if he's a #1, but he's a good receiver.

Did someone really say Fugger? Without an emoticon? Please tell me that's someone's idea of a joke that I just don't get.

WR's are often unspectacular in their first year. It's in part why I don't want to use a 1st round pick on one in 2013.

Kirkpatrick has been hurt most of the year.

You guys are a funny bunch sometimes...... Just sayin....

Brandon Weeden (Not because of lack of talent because I think he has the talent)because he has nobody to throw to consistently, Gordon has showed up in flashes but has not flashed in 3 games,

Shaking my head to this entire thread. Floyd? Who has ryan lindley at qb and even Fitzgerald can't make look good? Blackmon? Who has had Blaine gabbert? What happened when he got a semi legit qb? He's performed well the last 2weeks. Weeden has played like a rookie...because he is a rookie.

I don't agree with Blackmon...maybe before Gabbert got hurt, but since Henne's been starting he's been showing the guy some love...

Coples was considered a risky pick...a stupid pick because he's a head case

Shea McClellan...but hes on a D full of studs so that's not completely fair

Dontari Poe definitely....and to think i was a fan...def just a workout warrior

AJ Jenkins was a strange pick for the first round

David Wilson was too

why was david wilson a strange first round pick? tons of talent, but in the giant dog house as of now.

How are any of these busts, people judge way to fast. Not everybody becomes superstars overnight.

Maybe because Andre Brown is the better #2

Poe should be the poster boy for bust. All of the numbers and none of the heart. When will people learn?

Weeden is better than Colt McCoy (major bust).

Blackmon needs to go to a real team. He will be good.

I think Poe is probably the most likely bust of the high 1st round picks.

McCoy was a 3rd round pick not a really high pick

I actually think Poe will be a good player down the road. He just needs a better coaching staff.

My bust

AJ Jenkins

Lamichael James - 49ers first 2 picks were pretty shocking and bad.

Brandon Weeden - too old to really develop and has little time to learn.

Morris Claiborne

I don't really know about Lamichael James. I mean the guy hasn't even played yet..lol. Brandon Weeden is actually pretty good considering the talent at WR in Cleveland. He has exceeded my expectations. And we have to give Mo Claiborne a chance to really develop in that position. I think he will get better with time.

Lamichael James made no sense for a team that was already stacked at RB. He may be a decent gimmick player in the NFL. But I don't like him in round 2.

it been a pretty great class for qb up there with the elway, marino and kelly draft class , tannehill is exceeding expecttation by a long shot plays well against elite defenses, luck clutchness is manningesque, rg3 is every redskins fan wanted great young exhilrating talent, wilson is proving the doubters wrong about his play related with his height leads rookies in tds passes. matt kahlil is a top 10 lt in first year , probowl form. trent richardson is imo be great , and the mucle hamster is the next ray rice who make the hall as well.

You can't call Dre Kirkpatrick a bust. Period. He's played in what, three games?

That is simply false about Poe. Poe has the 11th best run stop percentage as a defensive lineman according to Football Outsiders so he is far from a bust https://www.profootballfocus.com/blog/2012/11/29/sig-stats-snapshot-run-stop-percentage-dts/

I think Poe has the potential to be one of the best interior D Linemen in the draft

It's good to know that HOF players were decided midway through their rookie year:/

    • Yes, epic injuries.  Yet, 11 guys played and someone still coached them....and we are able to evaluate those coaching decisions separately.  This is especially true in game decided by a field goal.     It's a game that the players played well enough to win...at least for my money.
    • Ugh Costas...what an uptight, buttkissing *. It's hard to believe football would get hit with the same type of nonsense that he spews that would be big enough to simply overshadow him. That's basically what has happened at the moment but he'll never be topped in general. 
    • As a Homer with objectivity I will happily point out the Colts have looked much better than the 0-3 Jags . The Colts were picked early by the media & other dingbats to be a powerhouse instead they'v stunk up all they got to show for this season is a tape of a guy playing with his junk in the pee pool there only highlight  .   The losses could have been wins especially the Lions game the Colts .   Your defense is you'v been right so far  So IMO your due to be wrong & I look forward to pointing that out to you as you enjoy a double helping of crow pie Sunday afternoon , Don't disappear make sure & come back & visit & remind us homers that you'v been right so far there Nostradamus ,    As far as being right so far does that mean you also predicted the Jags would go 0-3 ..  I doubt it .
    • Revenge is best served...in an equal manner I suppose 
    • I do think that politics has something to do with it. To me, it started when Bob Costas decided to make an anti-gun statement on live TV during a game a couple of years ago. It seems that everything is being politicized and we're constantly being told what we have to accept and tolerate, OR ELSE! Now, it seems the NFL is no different. It's just another platform that a political party and their supporters can use to push their agenda, and it seems to have put many fans off.
  • Welcome New Members

    • Welcome here Nils!   I can tell you, most of football fans in Hungary are Patriots fans...unfortunately. 
    • Hi, Nils here....   I know a lot of Europeans support the Patriots, but all I can say is no way man, no way!   I'm not entirely sure when I started to follow and cheer for the Colts, but I has no shame in admitting that it was when Manning begun to really shine. It was probably back in 1999 because I seem to remember that play-off game against the Titans.   I also remember the I loved how the Colts would play a beautiful offensive game whereas other teams were boring with their defensive strengths. Aaaahh, those were the days!   I was introduced to American Football during my American Politics/presidential election study in Washington D.C. in the fall of 1996 (Clinton vs Dole). Didn't really get attached to any team back then, so you can say that Redskins just left me totally uninspired.   It is a great and welcoming forum here - and that is just how I remembered America too.
