  • Who in the top 10 has the biggest bust potential?

    I say Brian Orakpo. While has some nice physical tools including a lighting quick first step, I don't know that he can play the OLB 3-4 position, which is more of a thinking position that a 4-3 end. I don't like him any better than Wimberly if he goes to Cleveland. Even as a pass rusher, I don't see the counter moves and savy pass rush skills like a Terrell Suggs coming out, who by the way went #11 I believe.

    I would also caution against Jason Smith going to high. While I do think he will be good, I don't know that he will develop into one of the top LTs in the NFL good. I don't see the pure power to absorb the punch of pass rushers or to pancake in the run game.
    Kaepernick is this years pat white. Thin, gimmick offense and doesn't possess an nfl arm. The ncaa constantly regurgitates clones of past players and amazingly enough, tricks some people into thinking they're better than their cloned half. Kaepernick was a complete waste of a senior bowl qb spot. A better qb will come from the east/west shrine or whatever they're calling it now...count on it

    Really it depends on the situation. If it's Stafford, and the Lions throw him in too soon behind a bad line and change coordinators all the time, he has a real shot at being a bust (or any other QB they could draft, really.) It's more dictated by how they're handled. Everette Brown and Orakpo could struggle transitioning to a different defense. Andre Smith could because of his ethic if he goes #10, same with Mark Sanchez. Malcolm Jenkins could lack the foot speed to play cornerback and then struggle transitioning to safety. If I had to pick one just based on their play and not other factors, I think Orakpo or Andre Smith.

      I'm not sold on anyone in the top 10 except Curry this is a really bad draft for the top 10.

          Don't think Crabtree is a bust but I don't think he is a multi all-pro.

            I just brought up Scott's current mock's top 10 and I;d say it looks something like this:

            1.) Stafford
            2.) Sanchez

            (quarterbacks always have a high bust rate, so they're safe bets)

            3.) Andre Smith
            4.) Orakpo
            5.) Everette

            (whats true for QBs is also fairly true for pass rushers)

            If we were doing this out of the whole draft, I'd say it's Freeman and no one close. College underachiever with great physical tools is always a recipe for major bust....

            And if Michael Johnson is selected in about the top 40 picks, I'd say him as well. Another underachiever with great physical tools.

              I think Stafford, he'll obviously be looked as the franchise where ever he goes, which again is debatable.

              That and someone made a good point about accuracy usually not getting better from college to the pros. That could have the makings for an implosion if too much is brought on him too soon.

                1. Matt Stafford - Not a great situation though he does have mega-tron. I think he'll be good but will never live up to his selection.

                2. Andre Smith - If a team drafts him to be their franchise LT, he will bust. Just won't be able to handle NFL speed rushers. If a team drafts him as an offensive lineman he will thrive whether that's at guard or at RT or even spot duty at LT.

                  I disagree about Andre Smith, the question with him isn't what the team does with his talents but what he does with his talents. If he rests on his laurels and thinks he's as good as he needs to be he'll be a bust but if he gets pissed at the doubters he'll dominate wherever he lands.

                    Matt Sanchez because 16 starts while surrounded by ridiculous amounts of talent scares me off.

                        Jason Smith, no y, is from the big 12, hardly a mid major. And at 305 he's a little light, between his work ethic, fieriness and incredible upside I don't see the problem.

                          Andre Smith by a long way.

                          Any Quarterback has a high bust potential, that's just the way it is nowadays.

                              Only 16 starts in college, Many of his games were vs heavily overmatched defenses, durability questions
