First round draft busts. Becoming a trend. Bill Polian, please retire.


It's a true testament to the Polians, scrambling around trying to fix their mistakes due to first round draft busts. Lets take a look at the last 7 first round draft picks.

Marlin Jackson (bust)

Joseph Addai (solid)

Anthony Gonzalez (bust)

Tony Ugoh (bust)

Mike Pollak (Second round due to the Ugoh debacle) (bust, please cut the poor bastard)

Donald Brown (jury still out)

Jerry Hughes (jury still out)

 

Maybe 1-2 starters in this group? 4-5 clear busts? Sure, its difficult to always be picking in the late first round. There is that grey area between elite talent and solid contributors. But not drafting starters or even solid contributors has affected this team greatly.

Joe Addai is solid. The jury is still out on Donald Brown. Can someone please remind me why Brown didn't play in last years JETS game?? He had break out games late last season, most notably against the Jags to win the division. Clearly the front office did not have confidence in him.

Hopefully the transition from Bill Polian to his son Chris is the start of a new drafting trend. This years class looks solid. All looking like contributors and possible starters. But the jury is still out.

At this point in Peyton Manning's career, its time to start trading draft picks for probowl caliber players. Its time to go ALL IN. Time is running out...
