i would agree except for sproles. he will go ~3rd round, probubly 4th. so if hes a good backup somewhere he wont be a bust.

if some team takes him in the 2nd round, they will expect him to start, and then he would be a bust. (but i dont see that happening)

guys like Alex Smith and Matt Jones are genuine boom and bust type guys. Jason Campbell is as well.

Williamson will be awesome IMO.

Derrick Johnson is set up to fail because of all the hype around him.

I dont think Troy Williamson will be a bust. He wont be a star but I really think hell be a good solid starter in the nfl.

The only good WR to come out of the SEC that i can think of is Michael Clayton. I might look like a clown with the Williamson pick especially if he goes to Minnesota.

We'll see though:D

He's the easiest one to pick. Weak armed shot gun QB going to a crappy team. He'll be a bust for sure.:roflmao::roflmao:

I disagree that MB3 will be a bust. The only guy that stick out to me as BUST is "Mr. 40's" Fabian Washington

Cheapshotz, I admire you sticking your neck out, but could you give us a little rationale as to why you think the way you do about these guys?

Smith could be a bust, but your assessment on him is as accurate as Wanny's were.

Alex Smith scares me.... I am very afraid that he is going to be a bust.

I'll comment on the Busts.

Pick 10 stars and Pick 10 Busts


BUSTS

Jason Campbell - He can't read defenses, can't throw deep with accuracy, played like CRAP in his first 3 years, Stock over inflated due to lack of talent at the position, his mobility is WAY overrated (he's nowhere near the speed of your avg mobile QB), He locks on to 1st target. Doesn't scan the field for 2nd and 3rd recievers. He just SUCKS.

Charlie Frye - Overrated due to this years QB crop, Played inferior competition and his numbers weren't all that great. Throws like a girl. Throws floaters Fiedler style. Makes bad decisions. He'll be a turnover machine in the NFL.

Marion Barber III - Not super fast, Not super big, doesn't possess any special qualities. He'll be an average back at best.

Troy Williamson - I could be a clown on this pick. He has size and speed, we'll see if he can catch. He's not coming from a WR friendly system and didn't put up great stats. He's a big risk for his draft position.

Elton Brown - Fat and Lazy. Unmotivated. Got by on size alone.

PacMan Jones - super fast but he's too short. If he's expected to play against #1 Wr's in the NFL he'll get dominated.

Alex Smith - Weak armed shot gun QB who played WEAK competition in a gimmicky offense. Rarely threw deep, mainly dump off quick passes. He'll be drafted #1 or #2 and be expected start by his second year in the NFL and he'll fail miserably. His mobility is also WAY overrated. Here's the indicator to how WEAK his competition was. This guy has 4.7 speed and ran for 600yrds and 10 TD's :roflmao:. That won't happen in the NFL.

Fabian Washington - Stock rose due to his speed. His coverage skills are very questionalbe.

Darren Sproles - MIDGET, everybody loves the underdog. He's too small for the NFL.

Heath Miller - Herniated disk is a concern? He'll be on IR every year. Considered 1st round talent because he's the best of a weak TE crop. Anthony Bect anybody?
