First person I thought of was CC Brown, he's literally the worst player I've ever seen take the field.

First person that came to my mind was Tony Lilly. Now I look to see if he made the list....

96. Rick Norton; quarterback; Dolphins, Packers; 1966-70: Started only 11 career games, which was about 11 too many. Seven touchdown passes, 30 interceptions, and 56.7 yards per game.

51. Kenyatta Walker; offensive tackle; Buccaneers; 2001-06: Once, while facing Julius Peppers, had three false starts called on the same down.

85. Troy Williamson; wide receiver; Vikings, Jaguars; 2005-09: Blown away by his breathtaking speed, Minnesota used the No. 7 pick in the 2005 draft to take Williamson. Apparently, the team forgot about his hands. Following the 2006-07 season, Williamson blamed poor depth perception for 11 drops. Later threatened Vikings coach Brad Childress to a fight which, oddly, helped his popularity.


HAHAHAHA

28. Alex Van Dyke; wide receiver; Jets; 1996-2000: The Jets used their top two selections in the '99 draft to take Keyshawn Johnson and Van Dyke. The two combined for 840 career receptions 814 of them by Johnson.

lol the guy they have pictured at #8 as ted gregory isn't him.
There are tons of jet picks on the list.
Notable current players: Aaron Maybin, Troy Williamson, Limas Sweed, Vernon Ghoulston, Kwame Harris (Is he still in the league?)

44. Aaron Maybin; defensive end; Bills; 2009-present: Jerry Sullivan of the Buffalo News recently noted that Maybin, a first-round pick out of Penn State, is the worst player in the NFL, considering he can't get on the field for the worst defense in the NFL. Hard to argue that one.

26. Vernon Gholston; linebacker/defensive end; Jets; 2008-present: His superpower? Invisibility.

12. JaMarcus Russell; quarterback; Raiders; 2007-09: In Russell's defense, he did throw 13 touchdowns and only eight interceptions in 2008. But that was it. Literally, that was it. Three years, not one other noteworthy thing to discuss.

lmao

Freddie Mitchell is on there hahaha. FredEx...the People's champ. So much smack from him when he was terrible.

To make matter worse the following players were selected after him:

Reggie Wayne
Drew Brees
Kyle Vanden Bosch
Chad OchoCinco
Steve Smith
TJ Houshmanzadeh
Matt Light

37. Freddie Mitchell; wide receiver; Eagles; 2001-04: Though probably not the worst receiver in NFL history, Mitchell is definitely the worst receiver in NFL history to talk nonstop trash. After the Patriots defeated the Eagles in Super Bowl XXXIX, Bill Belichick, who never utters anything of note, said of Mitchell: "All he does is talk. He's terrible, and you can print that. I was happy when he was in the game."

The Jaguars corners from their first few years have to be there. Mickey Washington and Vinnie Clark. Neither of them mofo's could cover anything. They were horrendous.

Aaron Maybin was on dat der celltech prior to the draft.

William Green stopped himself....he had legit talent....but was lazy and smoked too much pot srs

Can't Argue with Spergeon Wynn, but he wasn't even drafted.

72. Siran Stacy; running back; Eagles; 1992: His funky name brought him fame. His funky game brought him shame. The Eagles wasted a second-round pick on Stacy, who appeared in one game before being released. A year later the Browns brought him in for an audition, but lost interest when he was arrested for theft at K-Mart.

14 receptions, 154 yards and 1 TD in 13 games in his rookie year, then absolutely nothing after that. 1st round pick.

Quincy Carter doesn't deserve to be on that list.

Parcells had him playing well enough to win games... he just was a dumb crackhead, literally.

Chad Hutchinson and Clint Stoerner should be on that list before him.

They can kick these guys around all they want.

But at the end of the day, they made it to the NFL, which is better than most any of us who ever played football will ever do.

I've got no beef with any of these guys.
