Alex Smith-great college stats...as a result of Urban Meyer's spread offense...which he won't be playing in anytime soon

Troy Williamson.. some people have the chargers picking him at #12.. god just the thought scares me.. id say if he goes in the top 20-25, consider him a bust.

I was just thinking only in here would you find a big enough bunch of football geeks (I'm including myself here) to look at a poll on the biggest bust and spend the whole first page talking about football. Anyway, I voted for Braylon for the reasons already mentioned, although a QB is always a likely suspect as well (Ryan Leaf where are you?).

I'm going to go with Cadillac Williams. I know he isn't nearly as high as ranked as Ronnie Brown...but I think Williams could bust. I have a few reasons, but it's also just a gut feeling. His durability factor is something to worry about...he's not very big, and has a history of injuries, although that was years ago so may not be that big of a factor anymore. But he's not much of a blocking or receiving running back...I just don't ever really see him as a quality starting back in the NFL.

It's not going to be Edwards. In the biggest game of his career, the 2005 Rose Bowl, he lit up my Longhorns. If it wasn't for a Herculean effort by Vince Young and a too good to be true field goal, he would have went out on top with a win. Speaking of my Longhorns, I'm sad to say that I think the biggest bust will be Cedric Benson. He was phenomenal in college, but I just don't see him being a great running back at the pro level. He has taken such a pounding during his career at Texas that I don't know how much more he can have left in him.
