The No. 1 Overall Draft Pick of 1986 for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. 

Bo Jackson, RB - Auburn

Bo knows football and baseball. 
Even though Jackson was drafted in 1986 by the Bucs, he never signed with them over some alleged bush league moves by Tampa Bay trying to eliminate baseball as an option for Jackson.  Jackson swore he would never play for Tampa Bay, and he didn't.  Tampa Bay eventually forfeited their their rights to Jackson before the 1987 and Oakland drafted him in the 7th Round in the 1987 Draft.

Some would say John Elway or Bo Jackson because they never played for the teams that drafted them. Pretty much a waste of first overall pick.

Alex Smith has had a pretty good career. True that Aaron Rodgers has been way better but 22 other teams passed on him too. Couch had a lot of injuries to both shoulders and Carr was just on an awful team in Houston. Never had any protection.

Most losses ever by any quarterback to play in the NFL. You have to play for quite a long time to get there.

The No. 1 Overall Draft Pick for 1990 for the Indianapolis Colts. 


Jeff George, QB - Illinois


George had the arm to be a great pro QB, but he was a complete head case.  George did not have time or patience with the systems that coaches he presented.  He was a gunslinger who did not give a shit which made him dangerous and caused him to be shuffled around the league.

Same was said about Brett Favre when he was with the Falcons. Not only did George have a better arm than Aikman but he also had a better mullet.

George did it everywhere he went.

Favre remained the gunslinger, but he matured eventually. George never did.

Aikmann. Wow. Stud pick.


Almost forgot about Jamarcus Russel. Jared Goff sure to contend.
