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

Dallas also used the #1 overall pick in the supplemental draft to select QB Steve Walsh. By doing this, they forfeited their 1st rounder in the next draft, which would have been #1.

Thus, the Falcons inherited the spot. They traded down to Indy, and acquired Andre Rison, Chris Hinton, and picks so that the Colts could select Jeff George.

The same thing happened with the 1986 draft. The Bills would have gone #1 overall again. However, in the 85 Supplemental Draft, they had traded their rights to pick #1 to the Browns so that they could select Bernie Kosar. This pissed off Minnesota, who wanted Kosar and challenged the legality of trading supplemental draft choices. Tamalie may know more about the Minnesota perspective, but they ultimately lost. 

Anyway, Kosar had manipulated the draft process so that he could play for Cleveland and the Bills landed a bunch more draft picks again, including Cleveland's 1st rounders in 85 and 86. Ultimately the Bills ended up with Derrick Burroughs and Ronnie Harmon, so it wasn't a huge steal like with Tom Cousineau

Chris Hinton was traded for 2 #1 picks in his career?  Not bad lol.

The No. 1 Overall Draft Pick for 1992 for the Indianapolis Colts.

Steve Emtman, DE - Washington


************BUST**************

You can blame injuries or whatever reason, but Emtman came to the Colts with high expectations.

Steve was awesome in college he was right up there with the Boz in my book. I was always pulling for Steve but he just couldn't stay healthy.

The Colts not only took Emtman #1, but they had the top 2 picks in that draft. With the #2 selection, the Colts drafted LB Quentin Coryatt

The Buccaneers would have picked #2, but had traded their 1992 1st rounder a couple years earlier to the Colts for QB Chris Chandler after Indy had drafted Jeff George. Chandler bombed in Tampa and could not overtake Vinny Testaverde.

The 1994 Overall No. 1 Draft Pick for the Cincinnati Bengals.

Dan Wilkinson, DT - Ohio State



++++++++++Borderline Bust++++++++++



Wilkinson was not a total bust, because he played decent defense over many years, but he in no way came close to the anticipated impact and dominance of when he was drafted.

The 1996 No. 1 Overall Draft Pick Went To the New York Jets.


Keyshawn Johnson, WR - USC 


Although Keyshawn was not a bust, I thought he was very overrated coming out of college.

This guy cost me 25 grand. I had a 10 team parlay going and Entman was playing the Dolphins(last game of my parlay). Late in the 4th the Marino was driving the Dolphins for game winning TD. He throws a pass right at Entman and he returns it 90 yards for TD.Fucker.
