It's not all NFL, mind you.

I found numbers 18 through 27 particularly poignant.

Wow.

Leaf at number two all time. "Thank you, Ryan Leaf, thank you for destroying a franchise."

That. Is cold.

When you look up "bust" in the dictionary, Ryan Leaf's name should be there. ROFL

ROFL

2. Ryan Leaf, San Diego Chargers (No. 2, 1998)
It's not just that Leaf was historically inept (14/36 TD/INT ratio), it's that his failure led the team to drafting Drew Brees, which led the team to drafting Philip Rivers, which led to them starting Brees anyway, which led to one playoff year, an injury and a trade, which leads to the team starting all over again with Rivers and hoping he pans out. Meanwhile, the Chargers have essentially wasted the first five years of the great LaDainian Tomlinson's career with just one playoffs year. By the time (if) Rivers matures, it's quite likely L.T. will start declining. Thank you, Ryan Leaf, thank you for destroying a franchise.

27. through 18. Kansas City Royals' first-round picks, 1992-2001Look at all the players we passed on. However to their defense I'm sure a lot of them would have been better in other organizations, and some of those good players we could have had would suck here.

Cryin' Thief should be #1. Also glad to see Lawrence Phillips getting some love.
