Re: Seahawks Shopping Curry
I think Curry is one of the biggest busts in the last 10 years.
No way not even top 10 or even top 30. He played decent last year. Not as good as a #2 draft pick but not worthless like jamarcus Russell.
For the record, Curry was the fourth overall selection that year...
But I agree hamma....Curry isn't even close to being one of the biggest busts of the past ten years.
From 2009 you still have Jason Smith and Tyson Jackson, who were taken ahead of Curry, and they've not been impressive by any stretch.
In 2008 you have Vernon Gholston and Derrick Harvey going 6th and 8th respectively, and have amounted to NOTHING.
In 2007 you have JRuss, Gaines Adams (RIP), Jamaal Anderson, Ted Ginn and Amobi Okoye....none of whom are with their original teams or even sniffed a Pro Bowl, yet all went within the top ten.
In 2006 there was Reggie Bush, Vince Young, Ernie Sims and Matt Leinart. While Bush, Young and Sims did at least play some football, or are still playing, Leinart was a huge bust.
In 2005 we have the motherload of busts in the top ten:
Alex Smith, Braylon Edwards, Cedric Benson, Pacman Jones, Troy Williamson, Antrell Rolle and Detroits pick of Mike Williams.
That only covers five years...and it's too early to call a 2010 or 2011 pick a bust. And that covers only those taken top ten. In my opinion, any first round pick that doesn't become a starter by his second or third season is pretty much a bust. There are exceptions, but they are very rare.
Curry never met his draft expectations. I thought he would be a really good NFL linebacker, and a pro bowl level player. So did many others. But like I've always said, I've been wrong before, and I'll be wrong again.
