- Man, I'd be more likely to take the five that were projected to be busts w/ CJ, Ryan and Flacco vs. J.Long and Jenkins. YOU NEVER KNOW. On that note...lol, I'd go with Tebow below, followed by D.Thomas and Spiller.

Well the voters really don't have a good understanding of draft history.

DTs and QBs are about 50/50 when it comes to bust potential. RBs are very rarely busts, and in recent drafts very few 1st round WRs have been busts as well. So from a historical perspective, Suh is probably just as likely to be a bust as Tebow.

It's hard to predict who is going to be a bust. I'd probably pick Rolando McClain simply because I think he's liable to suffer from the same things that plagued Dorsey in KC which was coaching staff utilizing him poorly. Oakland looks like they want to run a 3-4, but seemed to forget the key ingredient: a nose tackle.

:lol: Indeed. I'm sure Haynesworth could be had for the right price.
