Buccaneers’ Five Biggest Draft Busts
By James Yarcho
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have a long history of bad draft picks, but these are their five worst in franchise history.
Recently, ESPN listed their worst draft bust ever for each team and Jenna Laine named Bo Jackson the worst in Buccaneers history. I gave my two cents on the issue and deemed Jackson unqualified for the crown of biggest Bucs bust seeing as how he never donned the creamsicle jersey or Bucco Bruce helmet, and how the majority of that wasn’t actually his fault.
That being considered, there are still plenty of swings-and-misses worthy of such a title. I mean, this is a team that lost its first 26 games, traded away a Hall of Fame quarterback in Steve Young, and been the butt of countless jokes from Johnny Carson to Chris Berman.
Not a whole lot to write home about in the history of Buccaneers drafts.
But who was the worst of the worst? Who takes the cake when it comes to franchise crippling picks that were supposed to help this team take a giant leap in the right direction only to take them ten steps backwards?
