    Ted Ginn actually made an impact and started or awhile. At least he's still in the league. Yatil Green was a monster in college but all those injuries are just bad luck...not so much a "bad pick."

    We did have Lawrence Phillips for a little bit before he got traded to Levinworth.

    On these stoopid Bleachers, is there a way to just see a damn linkable list of 'em instead of having to wade through individual slideshow pages?

    He wasn't drafted by the phins. Vermeil drafted him when he coached the Rams

    Tedd Ginn is understandable but the list immediately has no credibility once Pat White was no where to be found.

    Thats was the single worst article ever appearing in Bleacher rag.

    Andre Wadsworth had an emerging career and he blew out his knee and torn his kneecap. Peter Warrick to a lesser extent that finished his career off after the Seahawks.

    Eddie Brown should not be on that list. He had a solid career. Not being Jerry Rice is no reason to label him one of the worst 50 draft picks of all time.
    Steve Emtman wasn't a bad pick, he was just cursed with bad knee injuries. Coming out of college he reminded me of a bigger, stronger version of Howie Long.
    Just as an aside, and a lesson regarding the gamble that is the NFL draft. The Colts had 2 of the top 5 picks in that draft and picked Emtman and then Quentin Coryatt. Neither amounted to much of anything.

    Rich Brooks was still head coach when Phillips was drafted by the Rams.

    maurice Clarett should not be on that list. Horrible pick but in third round. Personally pat White should be on it over him

    Billy Milner and Eric Kumerow should be on that list. Yatil Green and Bosa got injured so that would be unfair to list them. Worse still i wanted the fins to draft Kumerow :oops:

    Thank you for putting Bleacher Report in the subject so that I can avoid clicking the article. I have been pushing for this for a while.

    The ONLY reason why I give the Pat White pick just a smigit of a tenth of an once of credit is becasue there was a lot of talks that NE was interested in him and Pat White was RG3 that never materialized. You have to give the Tune credit..... He had a visiion.................. Just the wrong player.

    wasn't Pat White up until that point the only QB in college history to win a BSC bowl game as a 4 year starter (Freshman - Senior)? Can't deny he lit the college game on fire from time to time. With that said, Pat really had no business going before very late in the 3rd round or 4th at the earliest, he just didn't have the messurable.

    I blame the trifecta in thinking that the Wildcat was going to be just as big as the creation of the forward pass. I can see where they think Pat White would be the guy to handle it, boy oh boy were they wrong on all accounts.

    Problem is everyone knew White was a runningback playing qb unlike rg3 who is a qb that can run. The 2009 season is when our coaching staff, gm and czar became too enamoured with the success of the previous year . I dont know how many arguements I had about the wildcat and that it wouldnt sustain us . Probably some of the same people who wouldnt talk about thier old opinion now lol

    uhh, well Iguess if you think everything the Dolphins do is a fail, you have to hit on a few...

    Although after totally embarassing NE in their own house with the wild cat, I was drinking the Kool-aid...

    Your statement is such a fallacy. Heading into the draft I advocated taking Tannehill and gave credit for having the fortutude to take him, Yes 4 straight losing years there is more negative than positive but people need to quit acting like I have said everything done is a fail because its inaccurate.

    People keep bringing him up as a bad pick. Clueless. Now Ted Ginn...absolutely.

    This article sucks. Eddie Brown with 6000+ yards and 40+ TD's? Gtfo. I don't care who was drafted after him. The guy made a pro bowl.

    You stole my theme but thank you for highlighting the Eddie Brown absurdity. I sampled the thread, not the article. Bleacher Report is generally too cluttered for my tastes, even when the content is good. When Eddie Brown's name popped up it was difficult to believe it wasn't a spoof. He was a big play dynamo who averaged nearly 17 yards per reception. Only an injury -- I believe it was a neck injury -- shortened his career and prevented him from reaching the reputation his talent deserved. You can make a case he belongs on the underrated list.

    I didn't look at the list but Tim Couch deserves to be extremely high. The highest profile busts like Ryan Leaf and Jamarcus Russell at least had the physical talent to be a great player. Tim Couch had nothing, other than -- eventually -- a Playmate of the Year wife. Weak arm and awful mechanics. No athletic ability. I was on Las Vegas radio that spring and said I wouldn't take him in the 5th round. He was a franchise killer if anyone ever fit the description. If you take a guy like that in the 6th or 7th round, where his talent warranted he should be picked, then you experiment with him at starter eventually, but once that fails it's no big deal and you demote him back to a reserve, where he belongs. But when you're dense enough to take him high, let alone #1 overall -- it's still difficult for me to type that -- you are forced to waste season after season. In Cleveland's case it came at just the wrong time, the rebirth of the franchise. And it destroyed Butch Davis' NFL coaching career, once he was moronic enough to sign with a team quarterbacked by Tim Couch. I sent him a warning letter. Darn fool didn't write back, unlike Barry Switzer. He's the greatest, Barry Switzer. Always answered my letters in handwritten form and at length, with great enthusiasm and humor.

    John Avery was a terrible pick! Eddie Moore was a terrible pick but was not a 1st rounder.

    Guys there's been a crap load of first round busts the past decade, just so happens we drafted a bunch of them but we've only had 10 first round picks the past decade. Other teams have swung and missed as well.

    Jamarcus Russell to me was the absolute worst pick ever. They drafted him because he can throw the ball 60 yards on his knees. Seriously.
