The real NFL Draft has passed, but April Badness is still here for your enjoyment. We began with 32 first-round busts, and now only two remain. There have been a few surprises, but our top overall seed and champion of the Jim Irsay Region, Ryan Leaf, has taken down every fellow bust in his path. His Final Four opponent -- Tony Mandarich, the last man standing in the Mike Brown Region. On the other side of the bracket, another pair of infamous busts. Representing the Ray Perkins bracket was Lawrence Phillips going against the champion of the Matt Millen Region, Tim Couch.

Who are the lucky two men left? Without further ado, let's get to the results!!
