I know it's premature, but if you had to guess who will be a bust in the 2012 class.

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.

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:/

    • Where were you last season?
    • Im not really sure what I personally categorize a slow start. I think it depends on the game. A 5 minute, 10+ play drive that ends in a missed FG vs Denver isnt as concerning as a 3 and out vs New Orleans. Putting up yards and keeping up Time of Possession early are typically signs of success later in the game.     That being said, our lack of opening drive points over the last few seasons was more concerning than I originally thought. But looking at all the results after that story I posted, we put up points in our opening drive in half of our games for the rest of the year. Hopefully that is the beginning of the end for all the slow start talk.  
    • Remember Irsay and Grigsons initial conversation while interviewing Pagano?  That players would run through a wall for him.  We believe That is the main basis on which they hired him and Irsay still obviously values this skill set.  It was never said he was or was going to be Nicolaj Tesla (sp).   Skip to what Ballard said after meeting with Pagano.  He actually said Pagano was smart.  Did anybody else catch that?  He didn't have to use that word but he did.  His reputation is as a straight shooter, so maybe there is more to our coach than meets the eye.  Or his country manners are so that he is overly polite. Main thing is that he will be our coach and the 2 of them are on the same page and we have a great defensive and RB draft class ahead.  I'm excited.
    • Pagano will never win a Super Bowl in this league. He's just not built for that stuff.
    • Mmmm. This would not be my definition. The score at the end of the first quarter would be more realistic. But all pretty academic really, it's the score at the end of the forth quarter that matters!
