     Every team has their fair share of bust.  The AFC West have also had their fair share of them as well.  Here I am going to list the top five and three of them are QB's.

 

5.  Brodie Croyle (Kansas City Chiefs):  Taken as the 85th overall pick in the 2006 draft.  This guy was supposed to be back up to Trent Green.  Who knew a back up could be so bad?  He has played in 18 games, has a INT to TD of 9-8.  What makes him a bust is that after the Green era, he was supposed to be the Chiefs QB and he is 0-10 as a starter and nearly cost the Chiefs the AFC West title in 2010 after a 31-0 loss to SD.  He should be given the slip and let Stanzi take over.

 

4.  Maurcice Clarett (Denver Broncos):  Taken in the third round, it was the arrogance used in making the pick, coupled with a complete lack of urgency placed on the importance of the NFL Draft that sticks out.  He didn't play for two years.  Denver did well without him but you know this set them back.

 

3.  Tyson Jackson (Kansas City Chiefs):  Taken as the third overall pick in the 2009 draft, big things were hoped for T-Jax but so far he has been nothing but disappointment as the Chiefs needed help transitioning to the 3-4.  I know it isn't right to say this about a pick that is entering its third year but when you get drafted that high up and Romeo Crenell cannot get you to live up to your potential, you are bad news.

 

2.  Jamarcus Russel (Oakland Raiders):  Drafted as the first overall in 2007, you could tell he was either going to be really good or really bad.  Like the guy at number one, he had tons of potential but fell flat.  He held out during training camp, and that came back to bite him.  Al Davis must be made out of money.  You know its bad when a Life Coach wants you to make yourself scarce.

 

1.  Ryan Leaf (San Diego Chargers):  If I have to explain this one to you, you don't know anything about draft busts.  He is the reason I went with 13 years.  Drafted number 2 overall in the 1998 draft, he was supposed to be good if not better than who was drafted above him.  Instead Ryan Leaf busted like a twelve foot glass tower.  If you were wondering who was drafted above him, it was a guy known as Peyton Manning.

It's pretty close. Jamarcus cost more money, and also Leaf was actually given a shot with a couple of other teams. Jacarcass will never play again.
