List a former college prospect, that showed all the potential in the world for scouts to rave about them & not amount to anything once them made it to the NFL.

Chad Jackson- Here is a guy who did not do anything at all in the NFL. Chad's stock was so high off the strength of his 40 time for his size, so that gave scouts the perception of him being an outstanding deep threat in the NFL. He was projected to be the first WR in his draft class off the board, but unfortunately he slid to New England in the 2nd Round.

Not all #1 picks are created equal, nor do they have equal expectations.

Tony Mandarich : this is what happens when they only look at measurables. He's exactly why they need the psych/Wunderlic (& illegal steroids) testing. http://i.cdn.turner.com/sivault/si_online/covers/images/1989/0424_large.jpg

That SI Cover Curse didn't help either.....

Jamarcus Russell : This is why hunger/ambition is a factor, & why college workout attitude matters. He's the anti-Workout Warrior & personification of why laziness in practice translates into poor game performance.

Ryan Leaf: When the media can pick at your fresh scabs & get in your head you're gone.... ever see that Bolts locker rm. interview with Leaf after he threw like 4-5 INTs? This is why teams test for a thick skin & mental toughness, limit media contact & coach players on what to say & how to act. But being fair about the media 86ing him, he was never as good as advertised.....

How about some of the guys drafted after Mandarich:

Derrick Thomas
Barry Sanders
Deion Sanders

I like to look at some of the Qbs that never really amounted to much:

Tim Couch
Akili Smith
Joey Harrington
David Carr
