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?

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.
