***Official New York Jets All-time Draft BUST Team***


Recommended Posts

We've done the all-time team, we've created the franken-quarterback, we've done top 10 bust lists. Let's do the all-time all bust team. If this has been done before I'm not sorry (just kidding, I am sorry, if it has been done please point me to that thread and shame me publicly).

Add your picks. Higher points for higher selections, and for calamitous draft circumstances, ie. trading two first round picks for DRob., passing on HOFers.

Who we got?

Defense first (because it's easier):

DE - Gholston

DT - DRob

DT 

DE - Polite

OLB - Darron Lee

MLB - Anthony Schlegel

OLB - 

CB - Milliner

CB - Wilson

CB - 

S - Calvin Pryor

S - Jamal Adams 😎

 

Offense:

QB - Hackenberg?

RB - Blair Thomas

FB - John Conner (because he was super hyped and didn't do much)

WR - ArDarius Stewart

WR - Devin Smith

WR - Stephen Hill

TE - Amaro

LT - 

LG - 

C - 

RG - 

RT - Vlad Ducasse

K - 

P -

This is a nice thread to sit down sip a kale tonic , nibble on some tofu, listen to the engine run, and ignore the smell of the exhaust.

Do we take into account who they could’ve had instead 

Because guys with decent careers, so not technically busts come to mind

K Brady

next we should do the all-time "ones who got away team" showing people we passed on that people were clamoring for that have had great careers.

Why did you leave so many blank spots? Also Jamal Adams was a good player while playing for the jets than netted us two firsts and letting us trade a fourth for a third before he went on to suck for another team?

Blanks to share the fun, and as far as the greatest in the NAYtion goes, that's why he got 😎

i appreciate that you're limiting this to drafted players... cause if we're introduced big contract FAs into the equation, we'd have to get a cabinet together to debate the winners of said lineup.

Zach Wilson has to be the biggest bust QB of all time and Mekhi Becton the biggest bust LT of all time because of how many years of suffering, sucking, and trading we had to do to get them.

Johnny Lam Jones needs to be at WR over any of the other guys listed. I'd go Kyle Brady over Amaro as well. 

I didn't see him play, because I was born in 1984, but his stats make him look like a lethal weapon compared to the crew up there:

I guess if they do end up busting that deserves some thought. Little soon to pull the hot trays out of the buffet just yet my friend.

Lam Jones. Nugent, Kyle Brady, Browning Nagle

Roger Vick "beats out" the Terminator easily.

c'mon, nugent wasn't a bust.  he was just picked too high in the draft.  he went on to have a nice career with the bungles and then a little with the patsies.  you can also say the same about kyle brady.  picked way too high for what he was but had a decent career.

OK who fills the K spot then for Jets

Lol there are definitely people who have been banned for far less trolling than SAR routinely gets away with.  SAR continues to reap the societal benefits of making $70,000-$85,000 a year.

What seperates SAR from most of those trolls is that SAR is a Jets fan though.

I mean, that's the point.  It's not Nugent's fault he was taken that high but he's still a bust.  Just like it wasn't Dewayne Robertson or Vernon Gholston's fault they were taken that high but they're busts as well. 

Just because a guy has a decent career doesn't mean he can't be a bust.  When you take a K that high, fair or not, you expect him to be elite for the team that drafted him.  Like Janikowski was for many years for the Raiders after being taken in the 1st round.

We've never taken a Kicker nearly as high in the draft (the only other drafted K in Jets history was Stu Crum - Rd 12 in 1983), so Nugent has to qualify as the biggest draft bust at K in Jets' history.

I'm not trolling.  I'm just cutting to the chase.

They didn't appreciate Marty McFly at the Fish Under The Sea Dance when he started playing Chuck Berry, but he was right, they were going to love it.

Of course he is.  He only spent 4 years with the Jets.  You don't draft a K in round 2 (our first pick in that draft) just to have him leave after his rookie deal ends. 

And a bust is not just about what that player did.  It's also impacted by who you passed on to take the player.  In that 2005 draft, when we took Nugent we passed on the likes of WR Vincent Jackson, RB Frank Gore, DE Jonathan Babineaux, DE Justin Tuck, OT Khalif Barnes and FS Nick Collins. 

Taking a K in round 2 is a terrible allocation of resources, so if you DO take a Kicker there, he needs to be elite or else he's a bust.  Period.  And Nugent was pretty far from elite, even though he had a fairly long career in the league.
