    It's definitely between Woolfolk and Henry. They were both complete garbage.

    Woolfolk was a first round pick so you definitely have a higher standard for those guys. That said, you expect a lot from your second round picks too. And Chris Henry was absolutely useless. Only managed to see the field in a whopping 7 games for the Titans. Two seasons and a pathetic 122 yards later, he's off the team.

    Tough call. But my initial gut reaction was Henry. So that's how I voted.

    I disagree with the VY votes but I guess it is hard to argue with those who went that way. I was ready to move on from him too. But I look at it like this... he came off the bench and saved our season (and Jeff Fisher's job) not once, but twice in his 5 seasons here. And he did leave here with a winning record. All this despite never being "Fisher's guy" and an abundantly clear KFC bias from Fishhead.

    That said, he certainly dug his own grave in some respects. He was immature. He was inconsistent.

    I'll just always wonder how he would've turned out if we had a different HC during his time here. One who would've truly built the offense around him and shown 100% confidence. I highly doubt VY was ever headed for the HoF. But I think his confidence was shaken early on and he never felt the level of support he needed from the guy running the whole show. And unfortunately for him, and us, he's just not the kind of guy who's strong-minded enough to persevere through that by himself. I think he needed a coach who would be, at times, irrationally supportive to really thrive. Not a guy who couldn't wait to pull the rug out from under him and had him looking over his shoulder 24/7.

    Henry. The only exciting thing he ever did was get K.T.F.O.!!!!

    To be a bust, expectations have to be high. Without a doubt, Henry was the worst pick out there, but we kind of expected him to suck.

    I think a more suitable thread would be asking which of our 1st-3rd round picks have not been busts,or at least have given us more than a couple decent seasons. There's many less players in that category.

    I voted for Woolfolk, but he was on the team 4 years and played quite a bit in '04-'05.

    I have to go with Pac Man. With the 6th pick in the draft you expect a perennial Pro-Bowler. We got a couple of good seasons out of him, but he let us down immensely. Just imagine our defense with a sure fire #1 lock down corner and Verner and McCourty. Our secondary would be beastly. He let strip clubs mess up his whole career and we payed the worst price for it. Just imagine us with Demarcus Ware. Well actually looking back at the actual draft almost the entire 1st round were busts. I mean actually look it up.

    Actually looking back on it. In 2003 instead of Woolfolk we could have had Nnamdi or Charles Tillman. Horrible scouting.

    Not really a high draft pick - third round, #80 overall - but Paul Williams caught one pass for seven yards. Great pick by Reinfeldt. :brow:
