NFL Draft's Biggest First Round Busts

Video Duration:

Tonight is the first round of the NFL Draft but some number one picks don't always live up to their expectations.

Kaitlin O'Toole is joined by the Fantasy Executive Corey Parson and SI Senior Fantasy Analyst Dr. Roto to break down some of the biggest first round busts in history. You don't always know how a collegiate athlete will perform at the next level. 

Tony Mandarich was drafted in the 1989 NFL Draft by the Green Bay Packers as a number two overall pick. The offensive lineman never lived up to his college glory days and his name is synonymous for one of the worst picks ever.

Curtis Enis a former Penn state running back who won all american honors in college but was a huge disappointment in the NFL."Remember how good he was in college? This guy was running over everybody then he gets to the Bears and he can barely find a hole to run to run through." Dr. Roto said in the interview. 

In the 1992 NFL Draft the Indianapolis Colts selected Steve Emtman, a defensive end from the University of Washington with the number one overall pick. Unfortunately, Emtman wound up being hurt his entire NFL career.

One of the all time busts in the NFL history happened in 2007 when the Oakland Raiders drafted JaMarcus Russell. He rarely ever played and was a major disappointment. You just never know how some players will perform when they turn professional. You can only hope for the best and that's what we are going to do tonight during the draft.

The 2020 NFL Draft starts tonight at 8:00 p.m. EST. For all of the latest NFL Draft coverage stay tuned to
