Enis didn't produce. thus he's a bust. i don't care what the excuse is. he was a bust.
Kinda hard to produce when your knees are ****. I don't call that a bust. I call that misfortune.
A bust is Ryan Leaf, Charles Rogers, Andre Ware, Cade McNown, David Terrell, etc...Guys who had ample opportunites when healthy to produce and didn't. Curtis never regained form after he tore his knee up in his rookie season.

Despite looking better against an underachieving Eagles team, I still think the Bears are one of the worst teams in the NFL. I smell a blowout victory by the Lions this week and a division sweep.
I doubt you were actually kidding, but you could put ahmad Carrol instead.
Well, in a sense I was, I got Newman mixxed up with the corner that got destroyed by the (Saint's I believe) he also may have been a safety, I just remember Roy Williams and someone else getting toasted in a few games I watched... Any Cowboys fans that can elaborate for me, I forget his name.
Could Darrell Russell be considered a bust? I know he completely tore it up early on in his career in '98 and '99, but then the drugs came and the suspensions and his eventual death. Not exactly what you expect from a 2nd overall draft selection. I don't really consider him a success, could he be a bust pick?
If you want running back's look no further than Curtis Enis and Lawrence Phillips. Receiver would definitely land on Charles Rogers and Peter Warrick. Mike Williams and Leonard Davis immediately come to mind on the line and then Robert Gallery if you want to plant that on him already. Tim Couch went 1st overall so he gets a bigger bust rating than Leaf would probably. Is there any tight-end other than Rickey Dudley to choose at tight-end?
On defense the name that comes to mind immediately is Andre Wadsworth. Kevin Hardy wasn't all that you would expect from a second overall selection. He really only had one year in his career, 1999 with the Jags, other than that he didn't do anything, really. He was definitely not worth the second overall selection.
This is pretty hard to do for defense and finding 5 offensive line busts, personally, I don't think there has been 5 busts there. Safety is pretty tough, can't think of any. Not a whole lot of linebacker busts I would want to put there either.
