    Shad Meier was at the very least the biggest draft reach we had. Dude was not even expected to be drafted and we took him in the third lol

    Chris Henry. Still scratching my head over that one.

    Lists like this often also include Lendale White.

    To me, a bust is someone who never produced well on the field. Not to someone who didnt live up to his hype. Lendale, Vince, and Pacman all produced well on the field for us so therefore they were not busts. Chris Henry, Woolfolk, Paul Williams etc..

    As far as return on investment:

    Paul Williams and Chris henry. They were never productive at anything, ever. Woolfolk was bad, too. VY is a major idiot, but he at least contributed for a short amount of time.

    I think it is Woolfolk and Henry. Neither guy helped the team win any games.

    No denying that VY and PacMan both single handedly won the Titans a bunch of games.

    Calico gets a pass because of his injury.

    The draft when we landed Henry in the 2nd and then P. Williams in the 3rd was just plain pathetic. It is crap like that that leaves your team devoid of talent.

    I just hope this doesn't bring back Woolfolk's Uncle to the board.

    disagree.

    Vince Young was a bust and he was taken with a #3 overall pick. However, he was OROY. That mitigates the "bust" label.

    Note my statement "so far....." I think you'd be hard pressed to say the Locker has delivered ANYTHING close to a #10 overall pick as of yet. He was injured this year, but prior to that I didn't see anything to suggest he could win close games (save Detroit) which is a stretch.

    I think we need to be honest with our projections of Locker based on what we've seen. He looks easily rattled, he is inaccurate and has good but not great mobility. We drafted him WAY too high.

    His hands were never injured. Balls were bouncing off of his face mask. Calico was another stupid project pick.

    Andre Woolfork

    He switched positions in college and only had two years of experience at cornerback and we take him in the first round. I don't know if I should put it on him or our front office for selecting him.

    The team around him made him an all-american, that is why I am hesitant whenever someone brings up us selecting a cornerback from Alabama (see Houston and Kareem Jackson).

    A picture of Andre Woolfork should always pop into your head when you even fathom us selecting Dee Millner.
