NFL draft failures meet box-office busts
AP Photo/Mark LennihanRyan Leaf and “Ishtar” have become synonymous with failure, unmet expectations and colossal wastes of money.
The 2012 NFL draft begins Thursday night, which means it’s time to settle in and watch hopeful kids in their first expensive suit; crying mothers, fathers and girlfriends; sweaty, sleep-deprived scouts; Mel Kiper; and Mel Kiper’s hair (so glorious.)
It’s also time to trot out the annual list of draft-day failures. All weekend GMs and scouts will be crossing their fingers and hoping their picks won’t join the likes of Tim Couch, Akili Smith, Mike Williams and the men on this list, five of the biggest busts in NFL history. Because the NFL draft now has the kind of production and marketing budget usually reserved for feature films, I decided to pair these football flops with their corresponding box-office busts.
