Raiders’ Upcoming Draft Pick Named the Greatest Draft Bust in NFL History
The player the Oakland Raiders will draft No. 1 overall in Saturday’s NFL Draft – be it JaMarcus Russell, Calvin Johnson, Brady Quinn or someone else – has been unanimously named the biggest draft bust in NFL history by draft experts.
In an article published yesterday on FoxSports.com, draft expert Tom Haren placed “Oakland’s 2007 No. 1 pick” in the first slot of his annual article ranking all-time draft busts. The change at the top ended Ryan Leaf’s stranglehold at the top, and bumped Tony Mandarich, Brian Bosworth, Akili Smith, Lawrence Phillips, Heath Shuler and other down a spot.
