Here are the NFL draft’s biggest busts and draft bust prospects who are currently unsigned.
Adrian Peterson (WR, Oklahoma) This year’s NFL draft will have the most busts on offense (17) of any draft since 2001, according to Spotrac.
If you can’t find the biggest bust on offense, the biggest free agents are the defensive ends, wide receivers and running backs.
This year will have more busts than ever, including the second-highest number of draft bust players, and one of the most prolific receivers of all time, Adrian Peterson.
The Cowboys had the second most draft bust receivers (8) and have a great chance to be a top-five offense this year, but they’ll have to be patient.
Khalil Mack (LB, Oakland) The Raiders could use some pass rush.
They’re going to need to get a good player in the draft who can take pressure off the defense.
This is one of Mack’s biggest flaws, and if he can’t get it in the first round, there are better prospects available than Mack.
Mack is a top 10 player and the Raiders will need to be aggressive if they want to get there.
Jourdan Lewis (WR/CB, Ohio State) Lewis has the most career interceptions (14) of all draft busters, and the Buckeyes may be the only team that can get the pick they need in the top 10.
But Lewis may not be the best player in this draft.
If he goes in the second round, he’s a bust.
Ryan Nassib (OLB, Syracuse) The best of the best.
Nassib is an athletic linebacker with the size to play in the middle of the field and has been on the receiving end of some nasty hits over the years.
But he’ll have an uphill battle getting the edge against the best cornerbacks.
Brandon Scherff (S, Wisconsin) Scherff is the best safety in this class and he will need an edge in the NFL, especially if he gets drafted early.
Scherff had an interception against the Bills in the preseason and he’ll likely have to beat the Bills for a roster spot if he doesn’t make it to the NFL.
Christian Kirksey (QB, Nebraska) Kirksey is one hell of a prospect.
He’s not going to be the first quarterback taken in the 2017 NFL draft, but he’s the first to be drafted since Brady Quinn.
Kirksey will need a lot of work, but the quarterback class could be the most explosive in years.
Eric Striker (RB, USC) Striker was the best back in the 2018 draft and he should be a big-time back for the Rams.
But if he’s not drafted, he may be a bust, as he was drafted in the fourth round.
Mike Williams (WR-WR, LSU) Williams is a big receiver and he can be a weapon at wide receiver, but there’s no doubt he has talent.
He’ll need to work on his route running and his receiving skills, and he may never be a great player.
Zach Cunningham (CB, North Carolina) Cunningham has the best size of the bunch and he has a ton of potential.
He was one of a few CBs to get picked in the sixth round, but it’s hard to envision him being a starter.
Jonathan Allen (DE, Alabama) Allen has the size, athleticism and instincts to be an excellent edge rusher.
But his size is his downfall and he doesn�t have the pass rush skills that make him a good edge rusher in the pros.
Justin Jackson (WR (6th), Tennessee) Jackson is a great receiver and an outstanding player.
He will likely get drafted in a top five position, but if he is, he will be a disappointment.
D.J. Humphries (RB (6rd), Alabama) Humphries is a tremendous back and has great potential to be one of, if not the best running back in this Draft.
He should get a big year in college, but will need more production at the next level to have any chance of playing in the pro ranks.
Tre’ Jackson (OL, Auburn) Jackson will need time to adjust to the speed of the NFL game, but his speed and explosion makes him a force to be reckoned with in the run game.
Austin Seferian-Jenkins (WR / OLB, Washington) Seferan-Jenks is a physical freak who can cover.
He can also line up at strong safety and be a good coverage linebacker, but at the moment he is a bust as a pass rusher.
Jake Matthews (OL (5th), Texas) Matthews is a better pass rusher than the next guy in the Top 10, but when you have a top 5 receiver,
