Top 10 busts of the 2009 NFL Draft

With the NFL combine starting Thursday, I felt it appropriate to look back at the top 10 busts of last year’s draft.

10. Brandon Myers – TE – Iowa
drafted 202nd overall by the Oakland Raiders
2009 Stats: 4 receptions, 19 yards, 0 TDs
4 catches for 19 yards? Who does this guy think he is? Darrius Heyward-Bey?
9. Fui Vakapuna – RB – BYU
drafted 215th overall by the Cincinnati Bengals
worst Towelie impression EVER
2009 Stats: 0 carries, 0 receptions, 0 total yards
Fui had as successful a 2009 as I did! I could totally be in the NFL!
8. Curtis Taylor – Safety – LSU
drafted 219th overall by the San Francisco 49ers
Can I get the origin of the word? No? Poop.

2009 stats: 7 games played, 4 combined tackles, 3 solo tackles, 0 passed defended, 0 interceptions, 0 forced fumbles.
The next Ronnie Lott? I wouldn’t trust him to cover the parking lot.
7. Zack Follett – LB – Cal
drafted 235th overall by the Detroit Lions

Zack struggles for the right to be the big spoon
2009 stats: Appeared in 12 games, 10 combined tackles of which 4 were assisted, 0 sacks, 0 interceptions, 0 passes defended.
You get drafted by the Lions and you can’t make more than 10 tackles? Your defense is ALWAYS on the field? Waste of a draft pick. Detroit, this is why you perennially suck.
6. Marko Mitchell – WR – Nevada
drafted 243rd by the Washington Redskins

Wow, Pokie got old!
2009 stats: Appeared in 10 games, 4 receptions, 32 yards, 0 touchdowns
The vaunted Redskins offense got a real game changer with Marko. Nice pick guys. Lofty pick.
5. E.J. Biggers – CB – Western Michigan
drafted 217 overall by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers

You lied, Google Image search! That cannot be EJ Biggers! Or can it be?
2009 stats: 0 games playes, 0 tackles, 0 passes defended, 0 interceptions, 0 forced fumbles, 0 slaps on the hind end.
Tampa got this pick from Jacksonville in a trade. Great move guys, this schmuck really solidified your secondary.
4. Stoney Woodson – CB – South Carolina
drafted 238th overall by the New York Giants

StoneyHenge? No? I quit.
2009 stats: no stats
As shaky as the Giants defensive backfield was last season and Stoney couldn’t even crack the roster? What a waste.
3. Darryl Richard – DT – Georgia Tech
drafted 234th overall by the New England Patriots
I spent too much time on StoneyHenge to be clever on this one.

2009 stats: no stats
Darryl would have rated higher on the list, but his number on is listed as #69 and that makes me laugh. I’m 12 years old.
2. A. Q. Shipley – C – Penn State
drafted 226th overall by the Pittsburgh Steelers

2009 stats: no stats
A.Q.? Is that a name or the worst final two letters in scrabble history? Can it be both?

1. Blake Schlueter – C – TCU
drafted 225th overall by the Denver Broncos
Missed a spot…on the roster

2009 stats: no stats
Can you say REACH? 31 people drafted after this guy and he doesn’t even make the team! I haven’t seen this big a bust since the last time I saw Andre Smith’s combine picture.
