Cedric Benson - I was a huge fan and I was burned for it the first few years of his career. Good to see him turning things around now though.
Derrick Johnson - Still my favorite LB prospect since I started watching the draft. If he played in a traditional 4-3 at the WILL position, I really think he would of been a star. Scheme changes and an inability to get off blocks kinda shut down his career though.
Antonio Cromartie - And here is my favorite CB prospect since I started watching the draft. Awful, huh? I wanted him on the Ravens so badly that year...painful to see the way his career has gone.
Marcedes Lewis - I thought he was going to be the next Antonio Gates. No joke.
Jimmy Williams - Loved the size, loved the speed, loved the game tape. Again, this one really hurts.
*** I loved Vince Young too, but I think the jury is still out on that one.
Jamaal Anderson - I LOVED him as a DE prospect. Thought he was going to be an awesome player.
Chris Houston - I loved him as well, big fan of the Falcons draft class that year. I thought he was going to be the next great press man corner in the NFL. Whoops
That's probably enough embarrassment for now, I think some of the other guys are too early to admit you are wrong about.

Tears for Fears is better than whatever it is you happen to be thinking about right now.
absolutely agree. but i think it was a bit different from the jamarcus russell laziness. i feel like he was looking good, even in the preseason in his second year before he got hurt again. i think that pretty much ended him.
Alot of people don't really remember that either. He started his career as a rookie on fire too, I think he had 3 TD's through his first two weeks(I'm not looking now so not sure), and he really looked like he was gonna make something of himself.
It's tough to bounce back from multiple collar bone breaks anyway though, him just getting incredibly lazy and fat didn't help the rehab any but I think he was on his way to being really good before the constant injuries.

I guarantee that if someone picks Cam Newton in the Top 5 they will regret it.
Charles Rogers is another player that failed because of work ethic. He was a legit, top end speed guy. When he tried out for the Chiefs just four years into his career he ran a 4.9.
He had that one awesome game the season opener against the Cardinals. Thats also the game that kinda but Anquan Boldin on the radar. Rodgers looked legit in that game, tough catches, going deep etc. I thought he would be a sure thing.
Robert Gallery - I didn't want the Giants to trade for Eli so that we could grab Gallery and try and make it back to the superbowl
Brady Quinn - I bought the hype
Chris Houston - I saw a physical corner with blanketing man skills.
Antonio Cromartie - Was a huge fan of his upside
Alex Smith - I thought he was a franchise QB
Derrick Harvey - Uhh
Chad Jackson - It gets even worse
Reggie Nelson - Why god, why must Reggie Nelson be ********?
Charles Rogers - And he looked so promising early
Roy Williams - Seriously detroit, this was the WR you hit on before Megatron.
Jamaal Anderson - I thought he'd be the prospect Mario Williams was supposed to be.
I feel like a lot of the guys I was wrong about (Russell, Quinn, Mike Williams) all had some issues, and if you told me that Russell and Mike would get lazy and never put in the work after getting paid, I wouldn't have been all that surprised.
