Since I took the time to brag about "7 Unsung 1st-Rounders I Knew Would Be Pro Bowlers" in my previous blog, I might as well offer up 10 guys I earmarked for the Hall of Fame on draft day ... only to watch them devolve (for various reasons) into major, major busts at the NFL level.

I encourage anyone to add more names to this list. The truth -- EVEN IF IT'S BEEN WEIGHING ON YOUR MIND FOR 20-PLUS YEARS -- should set you free!

2004 -- Michael Clayton, WR Tampa Bay Buccaneers (15th overall)
2002 -- David Carr, QB Houston Texans (1st overall)
2000 -- Ahmed Plummer, CB  San Francisco 49ers (24th overall)
1999 -- David Boston, WR Arizona Cardinals (8th overall)
1999 -- Cade McNown, QB Chicago Bears (12th overall)
1998 -- Andre Wadsworth, LB/DE Arizona Cardinals (3rd overall)
1997 -- Ross Verba, OT Green Bay Packers (30th overall)
1992 -- Steve Emtman, DE Indianapolis Colts (1st overall)
1990 -- Keith McCants, LB Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4th overall)
1989 -- Jeff George, QB Indianapolis Colts (1st overall)
